Europe’s only trade fair exhibition for the manufacturing and converting of corrugated and cartonboard, CCE International will be held from 14-16 March 2023 at Messe Munich, Germany.

The show incorporates industrial print event InPrint Munich and will be co-located to ICE Europe, an exhibition for the conversion of flexible, web-based materials.

Organiser Mack-Brooks Exhibitions said that, keeping the pandemic and political situation the industry has been faced with in mind, the outlook for companies in the corrugated and folding carton industry “remains promising yet challenging”.

While high raw material, labour, energy, and logistics costs pose substantial challenges for the industry, corrugated is increasing in popularity, it added.

The show is expected to cover areas including the ever-growing demand in online trade, the ongoing debate about sustainability and circular economy, and digitalisation.

“With the ongoing technological development of machines, processes and systems for the production and conversion of corrugated cartonboard and folding carton, digitalisation has become a major driver in this industry over the last decade,” said Patrick Herman, event director of the converting, paper and print events for Mack-Brooks Exhibitions.

“CCE International facilitates providers of materials, machines, technologies, and accessories to market their products to a targeted audience. This exhibition provides a valuable setting to drive innovation by expert exchange between manufacturers and users of new applications.

“With its unique focus on corrugated and folding carton, CCE International established itself as Europe’s top leading meeting point for this specialised industry sector.”

Confirmed exhibitors include Koenig & Bauer, Kolbus, EFI, and HP PageWide Industrial Corrugated, while Xaar, Meteor Inkjet, Siegwerk Druckfraben, and Sun Chemical are among the other names that will be present at the show.

The exhibition will also feature a seminar programme with a focus set on the latest trends and topics in corrugated and folding carton production and processing.

“One aspect that really sets CCE International apart from other general packaging events is the academic instruction it offers in form of open seminars over the course of three days,” said Gerlinde Kasa, event manager of the converting, paper and print events for Mack-Brooks Exhibitions.

“It’s a great programme where crucial industry topics, such as sustainability, digitalisation and many more, are deep dived. It also offers an additional platform for exhibitors to present themselves and their processes.”

A few speaking slots are still available, and the organiser said companies interested in presenting at CCE International can get in touch with the CCE International Team.
