Mr. BT Tee, Deputy Chief, Vietnam Representative Office, Singapore Exhibition Services - the organizer of ProPak Vietnam 2016 and Plastics & Rubber Vietnam 2016 shares:

“The event has been a great success with many of our loyal exhibitors already indicating that they will sign up for the 2017 event and with many requesting an increase in exhibiting space resulting from positive results from quality visitor inquiries. As Vietnam ramps her domestic FMCG consumption and increases food exports, the next few years will be good growth years for the food, drink, FMCG and pharmaceutical packaging industries, plus the upstream industries of plastics and rubber production technology which is the predominant material for packaging. We look forward to a larger event and an even more international exhibitor representation as technology providers seek new businesses in the buoyant Vietnamese market. We hope to assist these suppliers connect with their customers through the ProPak Vietnam and Plastics & Rubber Vietnam exhibition marketplaces. In addition, we hope to create more industry awareness through more advanced seminars on food safety, new materials and revolutionary packaging design seminars. I would like to express my sincerest appreciation and thanks to all supporting associations, collaborating trade publications, government agencies and our global partners for ensuring the success of this exhibition through all their hard work, not to mention our trade visitors who have taken time and effort to visit the event - some from afar. We trust it has been worthwhile for you. On behalf of the organizing team I would like to wish everyone well in their business endeavors and hope to see everyone again at this great exhibition."
