The seventh edition of All in Print China is happening October 24-28, with 60 per cent of stalls already booked by some of the biggest name in print including Windmöller & Hölscher, Baumüller, Kurz, UPG, Riso, Bobst and Ricoh.
It will be held at the New International Expo Center in Shanghai in nine halls with 110,000 square metres of exhibition space. This ius more than double the space that Ipex used to have in its glory days.
All in Print is jointly organised by the Printing Technology Association of China, the China Academy of Printing Technology and Messe Düsseldorf (Shanghai). The trade fair is part of Messe Düsseldorf’s global portfolio for printing technologies which also includes drupa.

Sabine Geldermann, global head for Printing Technologies at Messe Düsseldorf says, “Since its first event in 2003 All in Print has developed into one of the most important trade fairs for the Asian and, in particular, the Chinese print sector.
“Every two years All in Print in Shanghai becomes the platform for communication ideas, offering a fertile ground for technological trends and developments and providing key impulses for the Asian sector. Both exhibitors and visitors alike value the trade fair for its market-oriented, professional and international atmosphere.”
With the spread of digitalisation, China is now developing into a quality-oriented producer. The timetable for industrial change is being set by the Chinese government with its “Made in China 2025” strategy which flanks China’s 13th five-year plan for innovation-driven modernisation of Chinese industry.
The digital change affecting print and packaging companies has already begun with the increased dovetailing of smart manufacturing and production thereby opening up huge market potential for the digital printing industry – thanks, among other things, to cloud computing, big data and mobile Internet technology.
With its motto “Enter the Era of Intelligent Printing” the seventh edition of All in Print is pitching itself as a key platform for intelligent printing and packaging technologies in Asia.
There will be eight exhibition segments including digital pre-press, comprehensive printing, post-press converting, packaging equipment, ink and innovative Materials, label industry, flexo technology and innovation factory reflecting the various different aspects of the industrial value added chain.
