Paperworld set on promoting business relationships
With the Remanexpo section, Paperworld, slotted to run Jan. 30 through Feb. 2, 2016, will be characterized by a spectrum of remanufactured printer consumables and hardcopy components. Every year, more than 150 companies present new products and technical improvements for the sustainable printing segment at Paperworld Remanexpo. Demand from the visitor side — the trade and commercial users — remains high.
For 2016, Messe Frankfurt is further increasing the benefits of Remanexpo for exhibitors and visitors with two new services: firstly, a business matchmaking program to bring together demand and supply from the trade and industry; secondly, a new Business Lounge with exclusive office facilities, which offers an innovative opportunity to take part in the show for companies that, although they donot want to have their own exhibition stand at Remanexpo, would like to present their products in Hall 6.0.
The business matchmaking service gives exhibitors the chance to gain new customers while visitors have the opportunity to find new suppliers. Both sides can make targeted contacts and initiate potential business relationships even before the show begins. To this end, exhibitors and trade visitors can enter product information and interests respectively on an online platform on the Remanexpo website which will be activated in November. With this information, participants with the potential to become business partners will be brought together by a
trained team and computer-aided program. Appointments at the show will be arranged by the computer-aided tool, taking account of the needs of both sides so participants can make the best possible use of their time at the show.
“The business matchmaking program is distinguished by simplicity and highly effective results. Initial discussions in the Remanexpo sector were characterized by a very positive echo. Many exhibitors are interested and looking forward to a program that promotes business relationships,” said Paperworld Director Michael Reichhold. In the first year, the matchmaking service at Paperworld Remanexpo is free of charge for all participants.
For companies that want to use Paperworld for a new business without occupying a large exhibition stand, the Remanexpo Business Lounge offers office accommodation where they can hold discussions in the heart of the business. The companies will benefit from an expert visitor service and the matchmaking program. The Business Lounge is located in the Remanexpo hall so visitors can move quickly and easily between meetings on the exhibition stands and in the Business Lounge.
The congress is free of charge for both exhibitors and visitors. The lectures will be held in English. The Recycler Award will be presented in five categories: Remanufacturer of the Year, Supplier of the Year, Innovation of the Year, Customer Service of the Year and Rising Star of the Year, each awarded for outstanding services to the sector at the lecture area on the Sunday, Jan. 31, 2016. The awards are given by The Recycler trade magazine in cooperation with Paperworld. Registrations received from renowned national and international manufacturers.
In 2015, almost 7,000 trade visitors came to see the remanufactured printer accessories and consumables shown by 159 exhibitors. “We expect to continue on this successful course and are very pleased to say that many renowned national and international companies have already signed up as Remanexpo exhibitors in 2016,” Reichhold said. They include, for example, Delacamp AG, OCP GmbH and WTA Carsten Weser GmbH from Germany and international companies such as Data Direct Ltd. (UK), I.R. Italiana Riprografia (Italy), Katun EDC B.V. (The Netherlands), Biuromax (Poland), 3T Supplies AG (Switzerland), Apex Microelectronics (China) and General Plastic Industrial Co., Ltd. (China).
To be found in Hall 6.0, they will present a broad spectrum of products ranging from remanufactured laser and ink-jet cartridges, via toner and ink manufacturers, to manufacturers of individual components and collection, as well as recycling services.
