AUSPACK, the premier biennial processing and packaging machinery and materials exhibition in Australia, will be celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2015. Proudly owned and presented by the Australian Packaging and Processing Machinery Association (APPMA), AUSPACK 2015 will be held 24 - 27 March at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre.
Beginning in 1985 as a modest exhibition for a dozen companies on a cement floor in the Horden Pavilion in Sydney, AUSPACK has evolved into one of the largest trade shows in the country, having showcased over 308 exhibitors in 2013, including 112 international exhibitors from 18 countries.
APPMA Chairman Mr Mark Dingley notes that AUSPACK exhibitors today represent the entire spectrum of the industry from processing, packaging and filling machinery through to packaging materials, product identification solutions, materials handling, ancillary components and more. This broad-based profile of the AUSPACK exhibitor is a true indication of the importance of the exhibition on the industry calendar.
Acknowledging AUSPACK’s contribution to industry for the last thirty years, he said that APPMA was extremely proud of their flagship offering. Mr Dingley also welcomed manufacturers and suppliers to exhibit at AUSPACK’s anniversary edition next year.
