Staged at the Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre (MITEC), the three-day event (till Nov 24) by Reed Exhibitions (RX) is expected to welcome more than 4,000 delegates from the packaging industry in Southeast Asia and beyond.

Over 200 global players who are big boys of the industry will be featured, including Dongfang Precision, Fosber Asia, Eternal, Wonder, Hsieh Hsu, Wanlian, Xiehelong, Li Shenq, DGM, Keshenglong and Sansin, to name a few.
