International Converting Exhibition ICE Europe 2011

More exhibitors, more space, more product news

(PresseBox) (St Albans, ) From 8-10 November 2011, visitors to ICE Europe 2011 will be able to discover an even larger range of new and enhanced equipment and solutions for converting flexible materials. Amongst the total of 380 exhibitors from 22 countries, some 100 companies are new exhibitors at ICE Europe. Forty three percent of exhibitors at this year’s show come from outside Germany, with the majority coming from Italy, Great Britain, the USA, Switzerland, the Netherlands and France. The show covers a net exhibition space of 9,800 square metres.

“As the organisers, we are very happy that this year we are able to present the biggest ever exhibition for the converting industry. At its new venue, the Munich Trade Fair Centre, ICE Europe 2011 has grown by 16% in exhibitor numbers and by 22% in exhibition space compared to the previous event”, says Nicola Hamann, Exhibition Director ICE Europe, on behalf of the organisers Mack Brooks Exhibitions.

“As the leading international trade show for the converting industry, ICE Europe is seen as a trend barometer by the converting community. A shortage of raw materials, increasing energy costs and converting new materials are currently strongly influencing the manufacturing processes. Solutions that focus on energy efficiency, material reduction, sustainable production and processing of biodegradable materials are in high demand. For industry professionals this year’s ICE Europe will therefore be an ideal marketplace to get an overview of the latest technology on offer and to discover solutions to tackle today’s challenges”, explains Nicola Hamann.

ICE Europe’s exhibition profile has a clear focus on converting flexible materials, such as paper, film, foil and nonwovens. Exhibiting companies at ICE Europe 2011 will present the latest machines, accessories and systems for coating and laminating, drying/curing, treatment, slitting/rewinding, finishing and flexographic / rotogravure printing. Materials, software, retrofits, factory equipment as well as consulting and toll converting services will also be on display.

Extensive information about exhibitors and their exhibits can be found on the show website With the new online Show Planner, visitors can put together and print their individual floor plans. A Show Preview with hundreds of exhibitor profiles and product descriptions is available on the website as a download and as a collection of videos.

A conference on “Sustainability in packaging – processes and materials” is being held alongside the exhibition. The conference takes place on Wednesday, 9 November 2011; it is organised by Fraunhofer Institut. Detailed information on the conference is available on the exhibition website.

ICE Europe 2011 will take place in halls B5 and B6 of the Munich Trade Fair Centre, accessible via entrance East which is directly connected to Munich’s underground railway system.
