Messe Düsseldorf widens portfolio in southeast Asia
Following the exponential growing market demands of the plastics, packaging and printing industries in Indonesia, the Messe Düsseldorf Group of Companies announced their close involvement with INDOPLAS, INDOPACK and INDOPRINT biennially exhibitions from 2012 onwards. This collaboration will allow the further development, expansion and internationalization of the exhibitions to reflect on Indonesia’s evolutionary path driven by a burgeoning economy and increasing consumerism.
Indonesia, southeast Asia’s largest and one of the fastest growing economy in Asia, is the fourth most populous nation in the world with over 240 million inhabitants. Its GDP growth in 2010 was 5.9 percent and remains strong with projected growths of six percent in 2011, 6.4 percent in 2012, before expanding by 6.3 percent a year on an average in 2013–15. Domestic consumption is one of the major driving forces behind the country’s economic growth accounting for close to 70 percent of the GDP.
Messe Düsseldorf Asia and their local partner – PT Wahana Kemalaniaga (WAKENI) will organize the three independent exhibitions from April 11-14, 2012 at the Jakarta International Expo. With its dedicated team, expertise, extensive global network and commitment to delivering world-class events, Messe Düsseldorf Asia will take a leading role in organizing all three exhibitions and elevating them to a more prominent level offering high quality platforms for its international and Indonesian exhibitors and industry partners to present cutting-edge and global technologies on machinery, processing solutions, equipment and services to Indonesia’s booming manufacturing sectors. Acknowledging the growing importance and opportunities of the Indonesian market, all three exhibitions in 2012 will be supported by VDMA’s Plastics and Rubber Machinery, Food Processing and Packaging Machinery and Printing & Paper Equipment and Supplies divisions.
