The 11th edition of ICE Europe took place from March 12 to 14, 2019 at the Messe München exhibition grounds in Munich.
At ICE Europe, international exhibitors present their machines, systems, accessories and services for finishing and processing flexible, web-type materials such as paper, film, foil and non-wovens. At numerous booths, all eyes were on the live demonstrations. The visitors are industry experts who are on the lookout for specific production and processing solutions and want to get the latest information on current technology trends.
ICE Europe broke new ground in 2019, with records set in terms of the exhibition area and exhibitor and visitor numbers. A total of 463 exhibitors from 25 countries presented their latest technologies across a net exhibition area measuring 11,500 m2, with 7,150 visitors from 75 countries making the trip to the Bavarian state capital. The continuous growth of ICE Europe confirms its position as the leading technological trade fair in the converting industry.
On Monday, March 11, our 30 m2 booth in Hall 6 was ready and waiting for us. The booth was set up in the same way as the 2017 trade fair and was well prepared by the exhibition staff. Throughout the entire trade fair, we were able to greet our sales partners and customers from abroad here.
The target groups came from countries far and wide, including Asia, the Middle East, Eastern Europe and, of course, from across Europe. However, we were also able to welcome many customers from Germany at our booth.
For three whole days, our team – including colleagues from MDC Germany – informed visitors about our comprehensive product portfolio for the corrugated board industry and converting industry. This resulted in more than 45 contacts being established, some of whom were existing customers but also many who were absolutely new to us.
Networking is also very important for us at Daetwyler SwissTec. We want to continue promoting the world-famous Daetwyler name on the market and bringing it to a wider audience at trade fairs. The Daetwyler name is globally renowned in the graphics industry – everybody knows what we do and associates the Daetwyler name with that of an innovative company.
