ASIAN PAPER JAKARTA 2015 The perfect location for the pulp and paper industry

Thursday, Mar 05, 2015

April 28-30 will see Jakarta's prestigious International Expo Centre open its doors to the most important pulp and paper exhibition in the region.

All major suppliers in the industry will agree that Indonesia has rapidly become more and more important to the global pulp and paper industry and it is now ranked among the world's largest producers of pulp and paper for packaging, graphics and tissue. The country's geographical position makes it deal for growing top quality raw materials which - combined with its advantageously young and ambitious population - has made it a thriving hub of innovation in pulp and paper-making.

This is why Jakarta, Indonesia's bustling capital, has been chosen by the organiser, UBM Asia, for Asian Paper's latest instalment of the top regional exhibition for the unveiling of the latest pulp and paper technology. Some of the top industry suppliers have already signed up to exhibit at the event, from Advanced Enzyme Technologies in India, to Voith from Germany, and many top companies in between. There will also be a special delegation of supplier companies from France under the SYMOP banner, as well as many other local and regional suppliers.

Globally the industry is in a good place currently with low oil prices, advantageous interest rates in many countries, and, most importantly, the realisation among the general public that paper is good, paper is green, and that paper does a fantastic job in its many applications. Buyers for all sorts of products are making enquiries, with many already registered for the Jakarta show including a delegation of "C" level executives from 19 companies based in Myanmar. Paper traders, stationary suppliers and sourcing companies are also looking for suppliers of A4 copy paper, coated art paper, offsers, LWCs, supercalendered and notebook coverboards, in particular within Asian Paper Jakarta 2015.

Asian Paper Jakarta 2015 will also be running its extremely popular technology focused New Applied Technology (NAT) conference for industry participants. With the theme, "Getting More with Less - New Technology is the Key", experts, engineers and industry suppliers will reveal the very latest technologies which will allow pulp and papermakers to up their game, and make sure their mills are maximising uptime and minimising downtime.

Whether your company is a prestigious supplier to the many pulp and paper industry producers in the region, or you are responsible for buying the paper industry's quality products, you will find huge opportunities at Asian Paper Jakarta 2015.
