Registration has opened for Gulf Print & Pack 2024, the Middle East and North Africa’s leading exhibition for the commercial and package print sectors. The show is free to attend for all visitors and takes place at the Dubai World Trade Centre from 9 to 11 January, 2024.
Gulf Print & Pack brings together PSP’s, commercial and packaging printers, designers and print buyers from across the MENA region looking to view the latest technology in action including wide format printers, digital corrugated, cut sheet inkjet, package printing presses, and digital embellishment systems.
Across three days, visitors to GPP 2024 will be able to learn how to enter new and profitable niche markets in the fastest growing sectors of print, everything from digital textiles and wall coverings to labels, packaging and on-demand book printing. Another key trend to be highlighted is digital embellishment of cut-sheet commercial work, folding cartons, and labels.
Barry Killengrey, Gulf Print & Pack Event Director, comments, “We’re delighted to be back on the biennial calendar for the first time since the pandemic. During this time, the printing industry has evolved immensely, with exciting new trends such as digital embellishment emerging, and this has intensified the appetite to see more advances in digital technology, automation, and workflow capabilities.”
The last Gulf Print & Pack event was held in June 2022, attracting leading graphic arts suppliers from across the globe and over 7,500 international visitors.
“With the milder climate, January is the ideal time to plan a business trip to Dubai and kick-start new business here,” adds Killengrey.
Jade Grace, Managing Director, Labelexpo Global Series, says, “We’re excited to be running Gulf Print & Pack again. We are seeing a key trend developing in the MENA market, which is the transition to digital, not only for print and post-print equipment, but also for workflows that will be showcased on the show floor.”
“Visitors can expect to see the latest technology of on-demand book, photobook production, labels and package printing, and digital printing of fabrics and floor tiles. MENA is a key global market for the commercial and package print industries and Gulf Print & Pack in Dubai remains our most important event in this region.”
