FIERAMILANO, March 3rd: this is the last day of a fully successful edition of IPACK-IMA. “We turned trust into real facts” Ipack-Ima Spa CEO Guido Corbella says with satisfaction.“Visitors were surprised by the presence of many top names of the industry, given the current economic crisis. The trust of those who invested in our exhibition and in the future has been rewarded: IPACK-IMA met expectations in full and reports show all exhibitors are very pleased; many of them acquired new contacts and increased orders”.This edition reinforces IPACK-IMA’s strong presence on the global arena and is further proof of the opportunities available on international markets, in which IPACK-IMA strongly believes and invests. The show paves the way to Africa where it will stage the first trade exhibition in 2014, as announced at the close of the international conference of UN agencies. This secures Italyís lead over major competitors, first and foremost Germany.The next edition of IPACK-IMA will be held in 2015. Until then, we are looking forward to seeing you at the IPACK-IMA days, the traditional event fostering contacts and dialogue with industry stakeholders on schedule for next year.The closing exhibition also gave birth to the agreement with the EXPO 2015, the universal exhibition whose main theme is Feed the Planet, Energy for the Life. This topic is closely related to the issues discussed during IPACK-IMA, which will act as ambassador of the EXPO at major global trade shows over the next years.
