The 6th edition of the International Print Pack Sign and Corrugation Expo was inaugurated by the High Commissioner of India to Kenya Rahul Chhabra on 25th June at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC). The Expo gives exhibitors in the printing, packaging, signage and allied industries from across the globe an opportunity to showcase their equipment, introduce new technology, network with their peers and explore potential business partnerships. Exhibitors also give live demonstrations of their machineries, enhancing visitor experience.

The exhibition is approved under the Market Access Initiatives (MAI) Scheme of the Department of Commerce, Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Government of India. At 47, this year saw the highest number of Indian companies participating in the exhibition making up the Indian Pavilion at the expo. Other countries represented at the exhibition were China, Germany, Japan and Kenya.

Meera Mathew of Tashikka Expositions, the organisers of the Expo highlighted the entry of corrugation technology into the exhibition this year. “During past exhibitions we had visitors express their need for more information about corrugated box manufacturing, this year we are proud to give them what they have been asking for,” she said.

Corrugated boxes are recyclable cardboards that contain rows of air columns which make them stronger than average cardboard, as the air acts as a cushion for items inside them and the ridges offer more strength and flexibility. They are widely used in the food industry.

Among those who attended the opening day of the exhibition were the Vice President of the Kenya National Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KNCCI) – Dr Erick Rutto and the Chief Executive Officer of the East African Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture (EACCIA) – Charles N Kahuthu. The International Expo which is a doorway to untapped high potential markets will be held for the first time in Uganda, Mauritius and Ghana in the coming months.
