Brand owners discover ECPA at Brussels showOct 2014
ECPA’s first ever exhibition to promote the services of our members took place at easyFairs EMPACK in Brussels at the end of September. The strategy was to raise the profile of the Association and for brand owners and manufacturers to discover that ECPA should be the first point of contact if they are looking to outsource any of their packing or manufacturing operations. “We were extremely pleased with our first show,” said Rodney Steel, ECPA President. “If any of the 3000+ visitors did not know of ECPA before, they do now!”
Visitors were particularly interested to learn about the search facility on the ECPA website which enables them to shortlist members with the appropriate facilities to help them with their projects. They also intend to use the online enquiry form which ECPA can circulate free of charge to members. “We were also grateful to the support of our Associate Members who themselves are not co-packers, but are key companies in the packaging industry,” said Steel.
ECPA’s next exhibition will be easyFairs PACKAGING INNOVATIONS (stand C121) in Amsterdam on 26-27 November. Please see the link on our Exhibitions page.
