3P Plast Print Pack exhibition director
For me, unity is strength. When there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved. COMEXPOSIUM has taken a great initiative by creating "THE NETWORK" which provides a forum to the packaging exhibitions to work together to build a better world of packaging.
“THE NETWORK” is a credible and helpful platform which creates liaison and networking opportunities that will eventually help the packaging professionals to succeed. I wish COMEXPOSIUM and its team good luck and pray that "THE NETWORK" will be the central unifying force for the benefit of its members and the packaging community.
