    Exhibitor Voices upakovka 2017

  • Alexander Konovalenko, Manager for Additives, OOO APO Aleko-Polimery

    Our company, APO Aleko-Polimery, views participation in upakovka 2017 as successful. We expected interest in our produce and planned meetings and personal interaction with counterparty decision makers. Our expectations have proved above and beyond correct, with the number of meetings exceeding original estimates. In our opinion, the reason for this success lies in a good location of our booth in Forum, an extensive information campaign directed at market players and a highly respectable image of Messe Duesseldorf exhibitions. The fair as always impressed with a high level of organisation; any arising more or less challenging situations, naturally occurring in the context of process management of such complexity were resolved in a reasonably speedy fashion. For these reasons our company is prepared to take part in the upakovka fair next year.

    Roman Kononov, Lead Specialist, Department for Flexible Packaging and Label Solution, GK TERRA PRINT

    upakovka 2017 is our very successful start of New Year 2017. In my opinion our expectations of the fair have completely come true, and the number of clients was much higher than I could possibly expect. Comparing previous years’ exhibitions, I can conclude that year by year the fair has been growing and becoming increasingly more active.

    Anastasia Konovalova, Contract Engineer, Kropotkin Plant MiSSP

    Our plant participates in this fair every year, but employees attending are different, therefore I personally cannot compare it with the last year fair. However, preliminary results are not bad, they are rather good.

    Alexander Lebedev, Printing Solutions Sales Manager, Konica Minolta

    It is the first time our company takes part in this fair, and in my opinion the results are outstanding to say the least. I must admit we had certain expectations but the actual results have exceeded them. The interest in the solutions presented is significant, even in sheet-fed machines that are to a lesser extent oriented towards the packaging market, whereas the labelling machine – first Konica Minolta web-fed machine for this sector – created somewhat of a furore.

    Olga Soboleva, Marketing Manager, Paradigma

    I wish to extend many thanks for the way the fair was organised. I can compare the last three years, and this year the number of visitors is far greater than in the previous years. Besides, if earlier people primarily came in for the equipment, now there are those who are steadily looking for packaging as a commodity. (…) We very much liked the Forum Pavilion. This pavilion is warm and light.

    Denis Logachev, Director, Separate Subdivision of VA Systems in Moscow

    We view this fair as decidedly positive. If we compare it with the last year there is an impact of many various factors: now, let’s say, we have a walkthrough place, and in our case the exhibition has proved successful. In general, we participate in upakovka every year because we like it – we think it is positive.

    Mikhail Gromadsky, Director, Moscow Representative Office of Yasnopolyanskaya Fabrika Tary i Upakovki

    Our factory has been participating in this fair on a permanent basis, as for the results I can put it the following way: I would not say excellent but I would say good. I think the fair gives certain impetus to the industry development. Associating with potential consumers one has a grip on the market and learns new ideas, and this is very important.

    Integral+ Research and Production Company (ZAO NPF Integral+)

    The exhibition annually gathers together in one place a large number of packaging equipment manufacturers. This year it confirmed its status of one of biggest packaging equipment trade fairs. The number of visitors has more than doubled. I wish to note a record number of visitors that took interest in our booth as well as a great interest in our products. A record number of equipment supply contracts have been entered into at this fair. ZAO NPF Integral+ gives thanks to Messe Duesseldorf Moscow for the high level of the event execution, as well as all visitors to our booth.

    The next upakovka in Moscow will be held from 23 to 26 January 2018, again in parallel with interplastica. Further details are available on the web, at and also from Messe Düsseldorf GmbH, Malte Seifert, phone +49 211 4560 417, email: [email protected]
