" MULTIVAC has been one of the important exhibitors since swop launched in 2015. Compared with 2015, more effortwas put into promotion by the organizer. We found swop advertisements spread over various major industry and media channels, promoting not only for the show but for exhibitors as well. During show, we received some packaging inquiries from customers in the industry. As a member of the SAVE FOOD China Forum,MULTIVAC probed further into the topic on how to reduce food loss and waste, together with leading food processing and packaging exhibitors. The feedback was rather positive. "

"I think swop 2017 is very good because of the abundant resources and networksshared by the three organizers including Adsale, Messe Dusseldorf and China Food and Drug International Exchange Center, as well as the support from partners and Package Family. I am very grateful to attend this platform to showcase the exhibits and I am very satisfied see so many domestic and international visitors. I believe the development of China's packaging has unlimited possibilities. Compared to the United States, every Chinese consumer used more plastic packaging per year than the United States, so demand is relatively large."

We feel like we were invited to a great party and I believe swop will become better and better every year! For our company, there were international visitors but the proportion of domestic visitors was larger. For example, there were many popular brands in the Yangtze River Delta such as Estee Lauder. Although the exhibition area was not very large, it is more focused on the latest packaging technology, which attracted numerous new customers and old customers so I was very grateful to attend the platform. In addition, China's packaging industry is growing. The packaging technologies are superb and upgraded due to the contribution of the leading exhibitors. I’m very confident and optimistic about the development of China's packaging and the exhibition."

It’s a very good experience to visit swop and it can be comparable to other exhibitions that I’ve been to. It’s very different as it exhibits something we cannot see in UK and Europe as many exhibitors are from China.
