ICE Europe Is on the Way

HERTS, UK | With a new venue and a renewed sense of optimism regarding the industry, ICE Europe 2011 will convene November 8-10 at the Munich Trade Fair Centre. Organizer Mack Brooks Exhibitions reports 320 exhibitors from 20 countries had already booked space as of April, whereas the 2009 show featured a total of 330 exhibitors.

Main trends at the show will be new materials, sustainable production, and enhanced manufacturing and control processes, according to Nicola Hamann, exhibition director ICE Europe on behalf of Mack Brooks.

She adds, “With the new venue…we have found the ideal exhibition site for the leading international exhibition for the converting industry. The show grounds have an excellent infrastructure and the modern exhibition halls are tailor-made for machinery shows.” Reportedly, the venue can be reached easily from the center of the city as well as from the international airport. A shuttle bus will run between the trade fair and the airport.

Exhibitors will offer machines, accessories, and systems for coating/laminating, drying/curing, treating, slitting/rewinding, and finishing. This year's show has added flexo/rotogravure printing as well. Also featured will be materials, software, retrofits, factory equipment, consulting, and toll converting services.
