Here's what exhibitors had to say . . .
“As the easyFairs format is low-hassle and needs very little stand preparation we were able to use easyFairs® ECOPACK as a platform to launch our new notbox product having only booked two weeks prior to the show! Exhibiting was a totally pain-free exercise, and the fact that easyFairs® ECOPACK is dedicated to environmental packaging solutions was also appealing.”
Chris Gibbs – Director, Cerca Global Solutions
“Fearful the economic downturn may impact on visitor numbers, we had considered cancelling our show booking – but I’m relieved we didn’t as the event delivered a very healthy turnout and generated keen interest in our new reusable bag product from companies like Boots, Co-Op and Morrisons. easyFairs® ECOPACK helped put us in front of businesses who were genuinely interested in improving their packaging use and CSR.”
Vimal Varma – Director, Pak-It-In
“I don’t know how easyFairs do it but they always manage to get great numbers through the door and the visitors are, generally, of a very high calibre. Several Blue Chip companies came onto the stand and have expressed interest in our eco-friendly packaging.”
John Siegert – Easypack
“As a new company, this year was our first time at Ecopack and we attracted a good number of visitors to our stand. Visitor quality has been excellent and varied, with enquiries ranging from consumer retailers interested in strong, thin wrap for furniture to food manufacturers who were asking about the high quality printing. We have got a number of strong business leads as a result.
Interestingly, although we had biodegradable film on our stand, the biggest concern for businesses is reducing cost. The opportunity provided by our low micron film to produce a greater yield of film from less raw materials was seen as a big benefit. Diversity has been key. We’ve enjoyed interest from a wide range of industry sectors. It was a successful show."
Brian Woods, Managing Director of Bespoke Polythene Packaging
"Our stand at this year's easyFairs packaging show was particularly successful. Many existing customers and new prospects - representing a diverse range of applications and industries -came to talk to us. Our presence helped us to promote the Beardow Adams hot melt brand to a wide audience and to launch our new low application temperature BAMFutura 23 hot melt adhesive."
Stuart Wetherell, Strategic Marketing Director, Beardow Adams
