Tokyo Pack 2016 4 to 7 October

Showcasing advanced packaging solutions in Asia

Tokyo Pack 2016 4 to 7 October

Tokyo Pack 2016, a biannual exhibition will be held from 4 to 7 October at TokyoBig Sight and will feature more than 2,600 stands representing 600 companies in the 23,000 square metre exhibition space, which attracts more than 70,000 visitors from inside Japan and overseas. As a reflection of the Tokyo Pack theme for this year, ‘The Heart of Advanced Packaging Solutions in Asia,’ the exhibition aims to be the venue choice for Japanese and global companies to exhibit their cutting-edge packaging solutions and technologies.

The event will present state-of-the-art packaging, production and processing solutions for companies in the main sectors of food and beverage, confectionery and bakery products, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics, non-food consumer goods and industrial products. Moreover, on display will be a range of related services – Packaging Materials, Printing, Testing and Inspection, Logistics and Distribution, and Recycling and Disposal.

“Through Tokyo Pack, we hope that companies will be able to connect with one another, innovative technological ideas are exchanged, and concepts to improve the packaging industry in Japan and globally discussed,” said Koichi Tano, secretary general of the Tokyo Pack 2016 Secretariat. “To facilitate this, we will provide services to equip our exhibitors to better showcase their products, and also help our domestic and international companies gain easier access to the packaging technological knowledge and experience that our country has.”


Packaging South Asia is the cooperating media partner for drupa 2016 which is scheduled to be held from 31 May to 10 June at Dusseldorf, Germany.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
