Singapore, Singapore, April 04, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Despite the recent state of emergency in Bangkok (which has fortunately been lifted and businesses are operating as normal) and the deepening political division, Asian Paper is on top of the situation.
With over 170 confirmed exhibitors and a 10% increase in visitor pre-registration, Asian Paper 2014 is set to be the very best place to do business in the pulp and paper industry in the region this year. Buyer groups have already been confirmed, along with over 5,000 people expected to visit the show. It will be held in Bangkok from 23 to 25 April 2014.
“As of now, we are still receiving booth confirmations from international exhibitors and sponsorships are still coming in. We’ve already confirmed a group of Myanmar hosted buyers and are in talks with more groups to visit the show. So worry not, the show will go on,” said Ms. Jennifer Lee, Project Manager of the event, on behalf of UBM Asia Trade Fairs Pte Ltd, the organiser for Asian Paper.
Industry professionals from at least 22 countries – mostly within Asia – but also many from Europe, the Americas, the Middle East and Oceania are also joining the show as new exhibitors.
In its 12th edition, Asian Paper will have five country pavilions this year, with India and Singapore pavilions as new additions. Other pavilions include those for China, Finland, and France.
Alongside the bustling exhibition floor, there will also be two important conferences running concurrently. These are the Senior Management Symposium (SMS) and New Applied Technology (NAT) Conference.
SMS will address important topics aligned with the region as well as across the globe from a senior executive perspective, whereas NAT focuses on the very latest in technology available across pulp, paper, tissue and board production.
Mr. Paul Wan, Managing Director of UBM Asia Trade Fairs Pte Ltd, encourages industry professionals to attend the event. He said, “The theme of this year’s event ‘Think Global, Act Asia: the Sustainable Way Forward’ will be amply covered in SMS, and to ensure that all angles are covered we are running two panel discussions so that as many voices and opinions as possible can be heard.”
Asian Paper 2014 will run from 23 to 25 April at Queen Sirikit National Convention Centre (QSNCC) Bangkok, Thailand. SMS is from 24 to 25 April and the NAT Conference from 23 to 25 April.
