Developments are progressing nicely for next month’s Grand Tour trade show in Istanbul, Turkey. We have two exciting keynote speakers to announce, Smithers Pira and APEAL.
Smithers Pira provides provides market reports, which are independent and expert views of emerging markets, technologies and factors which affecting the packaging, paper and print industries. In 2018 the company conducted research titled, The Future of Metal Packaging and Coatings to 2023.
Focusing on this theme will be Ania Krolak, managing consultant for Europe, Middle East and Asia, based in the UK, specialising in packaging. We look forward to welcoming Ania to the show.
Joining Ania will be APEAL’s Tony Waite, the new president for the Association of European Producers of Steel for Packaging. Prior to his current role, he was regional head for EIMEA based out of Dubai, where he looked after Tata Steel operations in the region, and was responsible for all the sales of products into the region from both the European and Indian operations.
With these two new acquisitions for the show, this now completes our line-up, with Sarten’s CEO Sarıbekir completing the trio.
