November 17, 2003 -- The first staging of All in Print China 2003, China International Exhibition for All Printing Technology and Equipment, closed to very positive results: 39,198 visitors - including over 1,900 international trade buyers from overseas visiting delegations from 12 countries such as the Netherlands, Japan, Korea, South Africa, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan - traveled to the show held at the Shanghai New International Expo Center in China.
Jointly organized by Messe Düsseldorf China Ltd., The Printing Technology Association of China and Keyinprint China, All in Print China 2003 attracted 480 exhibitors from 23 countries and regions including Germany, Great Britain, France, Switzerland, Italy, U.S., Canada, Australia, Japan and Hong Kong. The exhibitors presented their products on 430,500 square feet of exhibit space – 53,800 square feet more than at the show’s originally planned staging in May 2003 (the show was postponed in May due to the SARS epidemic).
The exhibits at All in Print China 2003 were supported by seven high caliber conferences and 19 seminars, all of which were well attended.
The trade show was characterized as professional, international and dynamic. The combined presence of the world leaders in the printing industry and high-quality trade visitors jointly contributed to the success of the trade fair, which showcased the latest printing technologies, solutions and products from around the globe. The majority of the exhibitors were pleased about the enquiries received and the deals concluded onsite. They indicated that the visitor quality and quantity was far above their expectations and that they plan to take part in the next All in Print China event with more space.
“We achieved good result at the exhibition. Regretfully our exhibition space is not large enough. We will attend the next All in Print China with a larger space,” said Mr. Chan Seng Lee, CEO of Heidelberg China Ltd. “The exhibiting result is satisfactory. However, our exhibition space is somewhat small. We will expand the space next time,” explained Mr. Komori, CEO of Komori Hong Kong Ltd.
“This is the best international printing exhibition ever held in China,” remarked Mr. Fan Jie, General Manager of Shanghai Purlux Machine Co., Ltd.
“The exhibition is very good. We’ve achieved very good results,” said Mr. Wang Guohua, General Manager of Beiren Group Corporation.
The next All in Print China trade fair will be held in 2006.
