3rd CCE: Innovative techniques for packaging
On 21 March, the third CCE International will open its doors in Munich, Germany. The 3-day event is said to be Europe’s only exhibition exclusively targeted to the corrugated and folding carton industry. Since its successful launch in 2013, the show reportedly has seen an increase in exhibitor and visitor numbers as well as net exhibition space. Over approximately 5,000 sqm, according to its organizers, more than 150 providers of raw materials, machines, accessories and services will present cutting-edge technologies, manufacturing systems and the latest solutions for the production and conversion of corrugated and cartonboard including converting machinery, CAD/CAM, printing processes and equipment, cutting, creasing or die cutting equipment.
Visitors (2,410 came to the show in 2015) are said to come from corrugated board plants and sheet plants or work with corrugated sheet feeders, are folding carton converters, packaging designers and specifiers, rigid carton manufacturers, honeycomb board manufacturers, core board and core tube manufacturers and trade agencies.
Open Seminar programme
After the huge success of the Open Seminar programme at the show's latest edition, this year’s show will once again offer a selection of technical sessions focusing on current topics within the industry. The programme will revolve particularly around digital print for corrugated (21 and 23 March) and for cartonboard (22 March). It will be held alongside the exhibition by industry experts such as HP Deutschland, Esko, or Fujifilm.
Once again, the exhibition will be co-located with ICE Europe, the World’s Leading Exhibition for Paper, Film & Foil Converting, which will celebrate its 10th anniversary event in halls A5 and A6. This year’s ICE Europe will focus on the diversification of converting techniques, in the context of automation and digitisation, as well as on the efficient and sustainable conversion of cutting-edge flexible materials. Experts from both industries will benefit from the synergistic effects of discovering sustainable packaging trends and finding solutions along the entire value chain, from raw materials to finishing techniques and refinement.
