Showcasing the UK’s latest innovations in processing and packaging machinery, materials, containers and packaging design, the PPMA Total Show 2016 is set to return to the Birmingham NEC this September for the first time in its history, moving from its usual summer slot – with over 300 exhibitors already signed up to exhibit at the 2016 event.

Run over three days from 27-29 September 2016, the PPMA Total Show 2016 will be the first under the sole ownership of the PPMA for over a decade. This follows the success of the PPMA Show 2015, which saw over 1,000 leading packaging and processing machinery manufacturers represented at the NEC where more than 7,500 visitors descended to see the latest technology innovations and discuss new business opportunities.

PPMA1July2015Expanding on the success achieved at the PPMA Show 2015, the Total 2016 exhibition will open its doors to a wide range of materials, containers and packaging design companies as well as playing host to companies specialising in pharmaceutical manufacturing equipment and engineering solutions. Incorporating PPMA, Pakex and Interphex, the show aims to provide businesses across the packaging design and pharmaceutical sectors with an unrivalled opportunity to reach the right decision makers and showcase precisely how their solutions can address a number of particular packaging and processing challenges.

PPMA1March2016Speaking about the 2015 exhibition ahead of its return to the PPMA Total Show 2016, Andrew Yates, Sales Director for Endoline, comments: “The PPMA Show 2015 was an extremely busy show – one of the busiest in years. Not all visitors are UK based creating more export links for British businesses, which is good. There was a good quality of visitors and a chance to deal with existing customers too. It’s a great way to promote the company and meet new people and decision makers.”

PPMA2016LogoWith returning exhibitors, including Bosch Packaging Technology, Schubert, Reiser and Festo, already confirmed to join the line-up, organisers are confident that the 2016 show will be bigger and better than ever before. Speaking about its return, Grant Jamieson, Chairman, PPMA Group of Associations, said: “The PPMA Total Show brings together buyers and sellers at one of the most visually dynamic exhibitions of the latest processing and packaging machinery, materials, industrial automation and vision innovations. What’s more as a trade association we have been able to keep stand space pricing as competitive as possible, offering the very best value to members and non-members alike. Attended by thousands of quality buyers and industry experts, this event is not to be missed.”

PPMA3March2016In addition to an exciting line-up of seminar speakers and show features, which will be confirmed in the coming months, exhibitors and visitors to the PPMA Total Show 2016 can discover more about PPMA BEST (Business Education Skills and Training). The charity, established by the PPMA Group in 2014, encourages young people to enter and develop a career in engineering within the processing packaging, robotics, automation and industrial vision supply industries through education, training and support.

New PPMA Group CEO, Andrew Mint, who joined the association on the 1st February 2016, says: “I am delighted to join the PPMA Group ahead of The PPMA Total Show 2016. The show is a great opportunity for businesses to get their brand, products and equipment in front of a high profile audience and celebrate the innovation that the industry has to offer.”
