May 2012 was a busy month for KBA-MetalPrint in terms of trade fairs and conventions. As well as Drupa, where KBA-MetalPrint welcomed manufacturers of both metal packaging and paper, the KBA-CleanAir division showcased its air purification solutions at IFAT ENTSORGA in Munich.
- The KBA-CleanAir stand at IFAT in Munich
IFAT ENTSORGA is the world's leading trade fair for the water, sewage, waste and raw materials industry and a meeting point for international experts. Once again, Division Manager, Dietmar Decker, was highly satisfied with the quality of the customer contacts.
- The stand at CANNEX in Guangzhou was always well attended
This year's CANNEX was held from 15-17 May in Guangzhou, China. Alternately held on a different continent, CANNEX is the meeting point for experts from the 2-piece and 3-piece can manufacturing industry. China is a location with excellent potential for KBA-MetalPrint and we successfully placed several orders there last year. The Asian market is booming and we have a good chance of marketing our presses in the high-quality segment, so CANNEX was an important event for us. Once again, our KBA-MetalPrint products attracted great interest and our stand enjoyed a steady footfall that gave rise to many interesting discussions and new business prospects.
The IMDA Convention in Indian Lakes, USA on 23/24 May saw a high number of attendees from the American can manufacturers. What this convention lacks in size, it makes up for in quality. A meeting point for key industry players, there are many interesting specialist lectures and it is an excellent environment for KBA-MetalPrint to showcase itself and nurture existing business relations.
