2015 was the year of IPACK-IMA, the triennial trade show held in Milan. minipack®-torre, which always gears up for the event, honoured it with a stand measuring more than 100 sqm to welcome retailers coming from all over the world to see the latest entries.
minipack®-torre has always chosen to play an active role in the field, we really believe in trade fairs.
Meeting our retailers, discussing their needs with their, understanding the needs of the market: we believe this is the only way to success. This has always been the origin of our machines.
Along with IPACK-IMA, which as mentioned has undoubtedly been the most important event of 2015, Milan also hosted hospitality trade show Host. We have once again been in the limelight with our Food unit. This edition of Host has certainly been one of the most successful ones. Retailers from all over the world flocked into Milan, also thanks to the fact it was held in conjunction with Expo and minipack®-torre reported more than 300 contacts over the five-day event.
With Minipack America, our holding company in the US, we attended trade fairs Chicago and Las Vegas, where we gathered key ideas in terms of technology from the US market, which always keep a close eye on developments in this field. From the US to Japan, which hosted PACK EXPO, where our retailer attended the event and introduced our machines to Asian markets. This year we also ventured into new markets by taking part in the Italian Products Expo 2015 in Myanmar. We took centre stage in Dubai as well, where we attended the Gulfood Manufacturing trade show.
We would also like to say a big thank you to our Distributors, who also reward our efforts with your presence.
We look forward to seeing plenty of youin 2016, starting in January with SIGEP, then Shanghai, Frankfurt, Danzig and many other destinations.
In the meantime, we hope 2016 will be a year full of success together with minipack®-torre.
