Showcasing the latest in processing and packaging

11 August 2023

The PPMA Show is traditionally the largest processing and packaging machinery exhibition in the UK showcasing the very latest in processing and packaging machinery, robotics and industrial vision systems

THE SHOWPIECE event on 26-28 September spans the full spectrum of the processing and packaging industry, with exhibitors displaying the latest innovations for sectors including food, beverages, pharmaceuticals, household products and toiletries, building materials and supplies, pet care, micro-brewery and distilleries, FMCG, as well as contract packers and more.

When the show opens its doors at the NEC in Birmingham, visitors will have the opportunity of networking face-to-face with over 300 exhibitors, together representing more than 2600 brands. There will be a host of new product launches and a content-rich seminar programme that will appraise people of the latest technological innovations and products helping to shape the various markets.

Leading experts

Virtually every aspect of the production line will be represented, from labelling, filling and packaging to processing, robotics, automation and industrial vision systems. As such, visitors will have the opportunity to source new ideas and solutions for innovating their processing and packaging solutions, added to the opportunity of meeting with new suppliers and influencers, and tapping into the knowledge of leading experts in their field, all under one roof.

As guide to the 2023 show, here is a flavour of what visitors can expect:

- Live demonstrations of new machinery in action

- Video presentations by influential industry experts broadcast on screens across the exhibition and later on PPMA TV

- Major networking opportunities

- The ability to monitor the competition and benchmark best practice by gauging yourself against industry-leading performers

- Building new relationships, developing a deeper understanding of the industry, sharing information, and gaining valuable insights.

For those needing to source new solutions, visitors need look no further than the cutting edge machinery on display. By integrating new machines into their own business, visitors can streamline processes, improve efficiency, and boost productivity. Whether they are looking for ways to reduce costs or improve output, all visitors can learn how new machinery will help them achieve their goals.

Where the PPMA Show really scores is the opportunity it gives visitors to experience the complete production line event in action from start to finish. This is a rare opportunity to see how everything all connects.
