Australasia’s Processing and Packaging Expo is an exhibition that will truly represent all sectors of the industry, including machinery, ancillary equipment, materials and packaging, food processing and industry services. It will provide a comprehensive range of all processing and packaging equipment and services under one roof.
“We’re one industry; it’s time to show it.”
With those words, peak body the Australian Packaging and Processing Machinery Association (APPMA), has announced its flagship exhibition AUSPACK is transitioning into an all-of-industry event: APPEX – Australasian Processing & Packaging Expo.
APPMA Chairman Mark Dingley revealed the news at the APPMA Awards of Excellence gala dinner last night when winners of the national awards program for Australia’s packaging and processing industry were announced. Dingley said APPMA has run its flagship event, AUSPACK, since 1985.
“We’re proud of how AUSPACK has grown, and the value that it gives exhibitors and visitors. AUSPACK is more than just a packaging-only exhibition, it is a show aimed at encompassing the total processing and packaging sector – from machinery, ancillary equipment, materials, packaging, and food processing, right through to industry services. Now is the right time to truly bring everyone together across the spectrum of processing and packaging into one show.
“APPEX will be one exhibition for the industry, run by the industry.”
APPEX will showcase manufacturers and suppliers from across the whole Australasian processing & packaging industry including:
- processing machinery;
- packaging machinery;
- digital printing, labelling & coding;
- components & ancillary equipment;
- packaging & materials;
- robotics & automation;
- plant equipment;
- IT & services; and
- logistics & handling.
