As expected, Gulf Print & Pack 2015 was indeed the show of the season. Right from day one, there was enthusiasm everywhere. This year the visitors flew in from across the globe to witness this technological extravaganza. Exhibitors were excited to showcase and demonstrate their products to the customers while the visitors were equally enthralled by the sheer innovation and technology these companies had to offer.
There were a streak of product launches by technology giants like Heidelberg, Xerox and Kodak. It is clearly visible from the fact that most of the Companies have already announced major deals with several clients in this region. One of the highlights of the show was the record over the counter sales.
Major purchases were made by the local printing presses such Emirates Printing Press, Royal Printing Press, Technical Printing Press amongst others. Another interesting highlight of the show was the special focus on China and Iran. The Chinese and the Iranian Pavilion demonstrated their technological advancements in the field of print and graphics and impressed one and all. The exhibitors are seriously upbeat about the show as they were able to reach out to a wide range of audience through Gulf Print and Pack and acquire new customers.
There was a good mix of products showcased at the event that caught the attention of potential clients. Though the focus was more on the digital, the state of the art technology and solutions for conventional printers were also displayed. Equipment dedicated to added value and special effects printing also proved to be very popular. This is a clear trend in graphic arts today.
Gulf Print and Pack provided a wonderful platform for small players in the industry to display their products and expertise and gain valuable feedback from the customers. Middle East is a promising market and the print and packaging industry to set to grow by leaps and bounds in the years to come.
