BOBST has confirmed its participation in Gulf Print & Pack 2024 – the leading exhibition for the commercial and package print sectors in the MENA region – to be held from 9-11 January, 2024, at Dubai World Trade Centre.
A major event like GPP prompting the Swiss heavyweight to confirm its presence is not surprising, considering the optimism shown by packaging manufacturers about the growth prospects in the region. A Mordor Intelligence report shows that the UAE packaging market size is estimated at $8.87 billion in 2023, expected to reach $10.20 billion, growing at a CAGR of 2.84% during the forecast period (2023-2028).
BOBST will be showcasing their state-of-the-art laminating machines and CI flexo printing presses at GPP 2024. Mohamed Hassairi, Regional Marketing & Communications Manager BOBST Africa & Middle East and Turkey/Caucasus, says, “Our lineup of technologically advanced laminating solutions and processes are developed to meet the requirements of all segments of the market. They come with a range of features like increased productivity, waste and cost reduction, and enhanced modularity.”
“The CI flexo printing presses that will also be highlighted at GPP 2024 meet the requirements of the most demanding package printing applications, due to their capability of handling varied and repeat lengths, as well as medium to super-wide printing widths,” adds Hassairi. He also said that BOBST has exciting plans for the Middle East region in the near future.
A global supplier of substrate processing, printing, and converting equipment and services for the label, flexible packaging, folding carton, and corrugated board industries, BOBST will be at Stand No. H3.
