Sustainability, efficiency and automation will be front and centre when leading manufacturers from across the nation and New Zealand converge on Melbourne for the Australasian Processing and Packaging Expo (APPEX) 2024.
Presented by the Australian Packaging and Processing Machinery Association (APPMA), the event will be the largest business-to-business gathering for the processing and packaging sector to be held in Australia.
APPEX builds on the 35-year foundation of the former AUSPACK exhibitions, taking what was previously a packaging-focused event and combining it with the processing industry in what will be a 50 per-cent larger showcase at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) from March 12 to 15.
APPMA Chair Mark Dingley said the new event, which would be held every three years, united the best in processing and machinery as well as ancillary equipment, materials and packaging.
“This will be the largest B2B trade show for our industry ever to be held in Australia with the widest range of working machinery on the floor,” Dingley said.
“It is a showcase of the total processing and packaging sector with a focus on the latest technology and best practice. It is an unprecedented opportunity for knowledge exchange delivered by industry, for industry.”
APPEX 2024 is set to take over all 20 bays of the MCEC and will be divided into zones to help attendees find products and services of interest to them. The event will culminate in the Awards of Excellence, a gala dinner, hosted by APPMA, on Wednesday, March 13.
