ProPak Vietnam offers technology updates and networking opportunities

According to the Vietnam ­Printing Association, the sector has enjoyed growth of 15-20 per cent in recent years. In Ho Chi Minh City, it alone accounts for 60-65 per cent of the country’s total market share, whilst enjoying annual growth of 15 per cent ­annually.

According to the Mechanical Engineering Industry Association’s data, the food processing and ­packaging sector will likely grow by 38 per cent between 2015 and 2020, leading to a 25 per cent raise in the demand for machinery, printing, and packaging materials.

The 14th edition of ProPak ­Vietnam is set to take place from March 19-21 at Ho Chi Minh City’s Saigon Exhibition and Convention Centre. The event promises a ­creative platform to find potential business partners and ­admire the latest technologies in the processing and manufacturing ­industry.

Each edition of ProPak Vietnam focuses on educational programmes and features seminars and technological forums supported by foreign and local organisations.

Participants at the event will have the chance to share the most innovative ­technologies in use around the world. Also on offer are lectures and seminars featuring popular industry players such as Vietnam Association of Food Science and Technology (VAFoST), Multi Engineering Solutions Laboratory (MESLAB), ­Research and Development for ­Innovation (RDI Vietnam).

Having accompanied ProPak Vietnam for years, VAFoST is ­considered as one of the leading players in promoting the ­development of the industry. A ­seminar titled “Food Engineering and Packaging for Sustainable

Development”, moderated by Prof. Luu Duan, will provide a wide range of information.

In addition, MESLAB will ­present two seminars which aim to improve customer experience and product communication.

Making their debut at ProPak Vietnam, RDI Vietnam promises to attract participants with a lecture ­focusing on empowering research and development, technological ­applications, and the development of new business ­models for the packaging industry in the context of Industry 4.0.
