When east meets west
After some deliberation and feedback from many of you within the industry, we have decided on a location for our CanTech – The Grand Tour trade show for 2019. We will be hosting our inaugural event in Istanbul, Turkey. The event will take place in March 2019.
As a gateway into both Europe and the Middle East, not to mention its close location to Africa, Istanbul is the ideal venue. We look forward to working with local can makers, fillers and suppliers, to make this an outstanding industry event. That’s not to say Euro CanTech has been replaced, far from it, The Grand Tour brand name just provides us with the opportunity to expand the CanTech portfolio into other territories across the globe. We hope to have your support for the event in 2019.
We have just put the finishing touches to our May issue. Don’t forget that you can access the material before it hits your desk via our app. Be sure to download this via our app store. The app also has a few other decent features, including allowing us to update you with information from our CanTech trade shows and other important announcements. Don’t miss out on this opportunity!
