And printpack alger 2024 is growing just as fast. For its best possible development, the exhibition is therefore moving to the larger Palais des Expositions d'Alger - SAFEX.

Organised by fairtrade Messe and Messe Duesseldorf, printpack & plast alger will be held in Pavilions C & A of the Palais des Expositions d'Alger – SAFEX from 04 to 06 March 2024.
