THE Philippines is a powerful market with a population of over 107 million*, and it is one of the top performers in the ASEAN. The country is witnessing strong and dynamic growth across its processing and packaging sectors, and attracting international F&B companies. From 2017 to 2021 food sales are forecast to grow 8.6% annually. There is every reason to tap this huge market for food and beverage – and UBM is making it possible through ProPak Philippines 2019.
The first-of-its-kind ProPak standard, B2B trade event to launch in Manila is supported by the Packaging Institute of The Philippines (PIP), an organisation consisting of manufacturers, suppliers, and users of packaging materials and services in the country.
Offering solutions and exposure for the manufacturing, processing and packaging industries, ProPak Philippines will have dedicated zones for PlasPak Philippines and Ingredients Philippines. PlasPak will introduce the latest in plastic material and packaging innovation solutions; the Ingredients zone showcases quality food and beverage ingredients from local and international companies.
As of October 2018, over 180 exhibitors will be attending this inaugural event. International pavilions are confirmed from mainland China, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Singapore, Taiwan and the UK. Over 6,000 industry trade visitors looking to source for new products and latest technologies, and potential business partners that will help generate and support growing business.
The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) is scheduled to conduct the following seminars:
“Understanding the value of Sustainable & Safe Food Packaging to your business” on 24 January 2019 from 14.00 - 15.30 pm at the Hidalgo Room
“Understanding Packaging Economics & Product Life Extension” on 25 January 2019 from 10.00 - 11.30 am at the Hidalgo Room
“A better understanding of the value and benefits to introducing new and innovative automated packaging systems into your business” (workshop)
The PIP, the Department of Trade & Industry, the Philippine Association of Food Technologists (PAFT), the Production Management Association of the Philippines, and the Ruwac Asia Group are also scheduled to hold seminars.
ProPak Philippines will take place from 24 to 26 January 2019 at World Trade Center Metro Manila in Pasay City, Philippines. The venue is located within the Manila Bay area, an established location for major conventions, exhibitions, entertainment and cultural activities. A stone’s throw away from the Makati and Fort Bonifacio business districts, international and domestic airports, first-class hotels, shopping malls and Manila’s central seaport, it is also conveniently accessible through the main thoroughfares.
UBM Exhibitions Philippines with ProPak Event Series are the organisers of this event. Over the last 12 months the ProPak portfolio of events covering Asia and China, and held in Indonesia, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam, have connected over 3,000 exhibitors to more than 100,000 buyers and specifiers from across the region.
