– powered by drupa – growing dynamically.
The Algerian, Maghreb and West African markets for paper processing, printing technologies, finishing and packaging printing are on the upswing. According to the VDMA, the three countries Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia have already imported print and paper technology worth 131 million euros in 2016. In packaging technology, the amount even amounted to 340 million euros.
Since Algeria is Africa’s third-largest importer of printing and paper technology and the largest importer of packaging technology, it is not surprising that printpack alger 2018 is also showing positive growth.
printpack alger 2018 is supported by the world’s leading trade fair drupa. The printpack alger 2018 is jointly organized by fairtrade and Messe Düsseldorf.
At printpack alger 2018, renowned exhibitors present technologies and solutions along the entire value chain from prepress/print, premedia/multichannel and postpress to converting and packaging to materials, equipment, services and infrastructure – tailored to the needs of North and West African customers.

The basis for the positive growth of printpack alger is the increasingly interesting North and West African market as well as the high level of satisfaction with the previous event on both the exhibitor and visitor sides.

At the same time, 83 percent of visitors were pleased with the positive business prospects, with each exhibitor praising the quality of the trade visitors and recommending the event.
