All in Print China 2018 to showcase innovation
PRC • From 24 to 28 October 2018, the 7th All in Print China event will be held in Shanghai’s New International Expo Centre. With nine halls spread over an area of more than 110,000 sqm, the new theme of AIP 2018 is “Enter the era of intelligent printing.”
China, which continues to grow economically, has entitled their strategy “Made in China 2025”. This means that over the next nine years, China will accelerate the integration of new generations of information technology within their manufacturing industry.
A highlight at All in Print China will be the eight exhibition segments entitled “digital Prepress”, “comprehensive printing”, “post-press converting”, “packaging equipment”, “ink & innovative materials”, label industry”, “flexo technology” and “innovation factory”.
Launched in 2016, the “innovation factory pavilion” picks up on technologies like 3D printing, functional printing, green printing, the smart factory as well as virtual and augmented reality technologies. A new special area for corrugated cardboard and flexible packaging aims to promote interaction between the printing and packaging industries.
Studies suggest that in 2015, the global market value of digital printing accounted for over 13.9% of the printing and packaging industry. That figure is expected to rise sharply beyond 17.5% or higher by 2020.
All in Print is jointly organised by the Printing Technology Association of China, the China Academy of Printing Technology and Messe Düsseldorf (Shanghai).
