The 8th edition of printpack & plast alger: Key business platform for presenting sustainable print and pack tech and material

NEW: Recycling Solutions @ printpack & plast alger

Algeria is one of Africa's largest investors in printing and packaging technology. (VDMA) These technology imports enable Algeria to develop and diversify its own production, increase exports, and substitute imports of consumables.

It is against this background, that the 8th edition of printpack & plast alger in 2024 plays an important role in raising awareness of environmentally friendly materials and packaging among the Algerian public and making the public increasingly familiar with green solutions and circular economy.

The use of renewable raw materials, recyclability and reduction of material is key for innovative and sustainable printing and packaging. Many processes are becoming increasingly digitalized, no wonder that these developments will be reflected at printpack & plast alger 2024.

Organised by fairtrade Messe and Messe Duesseldorf, printpack & plast alger will be held at the Centre International de Conférences d’Alger Abdelatif Rahal CIC from 04 to 06 March 2024.

The event is to continue its growth story, both in quality and quantity, and international market leaders will be there again in 2024, as well as official country pavilions from Austria, China, Egypt, France, Germany, India, Italy, Spain, Tunisia and Türkiye.
