A total of 2,406 visitors from 79 countries came to Munich to discover the wide range of machinery, accessories and services covering the entire production and processing chain of corrugated and folding carton. The number of visitors has, thus, risen by 13% compared to 2017. Once again, the live demonstrations at the stands of the 155 exhibitors from 23 countries attracted a highly international expert audience, 69% of whom came from outside Germany. Digital print on corrugated and folding carton was the predominant topic at the show.

The majority of the visitors came from Germany, Italy, France, Great Britain, Poland, Russia, Turkey, Spain, Austria and the Czech Republic. The most important exhibitor countries at the show were Italy, Germany, China, the Netherlands and Great Britain.

At CCE International 2019 trade visitors got an overview of the latest technology trends, manufacturing processes, machinery and services covering the entire production and processing chain. Many exhibitors presented the benefits of their machines and systems with live demonstrations at their stands; an opportunity that many trade visitors made use of.

The first results of the exhibition analysis show, that trade visitors were experts mainly interested in equipment for corrugated board plants and sheet plants, printing applications, control systems, equipment for folding carton converting, raw materials, as well as materials handling and warehousing.
