Rachmat Sarwono, Director of Borobudur Industri Jamu PT, emphasized the synergies of the three exhibitions: “They are a good platform to find relevant technologies for my business and I came to look for better packaging machines.”
Highlighting the importance of each exhibition for the thriving domestic market, Peter Janusik, President of P.T.

We introduced our products to many interested visitors from around the region at our booth”.
International market players accounted for more than half of the exhibitors and occupied 70% of the show floor. Germany, Taiwan, Singapore and Austria were strongly represented alongside country group exhibits from China, Italy and Thailand. Paolo Gasparotta from Moretto SPA who has participated in the exhibitions consistently over the years, stated that he has seen good quality visitors “and made very strong leads at the exhibition.” First time INDOPLAS exhibitor Anston Tan, Principal at the German Training Centre for Injection Molding Asia, remarked: “We got good enquiries from the many visitors we talked to and are confident that we will be able to reach out to more potential clients due to the visibility we received at this exhibition.”
At INDOPRINT, PT Asaba Develop launched their DEGAS ineo+1060/1070 printing machine.
