Günter Korbacher, Managing Director of WEILBURGER Graphics GmbH about the both exhibitions: “Also 2017 is for us real exhibition year with many national and international participations after the drupa year 2016. Especially the two trade fairs mentioned here were genuine highlights for us. I certainly need not mention the fact that the interpack has now become a highly respected specialist exhibition for the packaging industry. To exhibit here together with other members of the PrintCity creates opportunities, symbiosis and open spaces that we would not have as individual exhibitor. Therefore, we will pursue this concept also for following fairs.” Günter Korbacher continued: “But also the in-house exhibition of IST METZ GmbH in Nürtingen has become a real treat in the fair calendar. Every year, we are pleased to advise the technical specialist audience in a relaxed atmosphere about our wide product range and to meet old acquaintances b eside to many new faces.”
