ProPak Asia 2022, Asia’s largest trade exhibition for manufacturing, processing, and packaging industries, officially kicks off, acting as a one-stop service platform for business development. The trade show is organized on 15-18 June 2022 at BITEC Bangna, bringing together over 1000 companies to showcase their cutting-edge innovations and technologies. This is the first event after Thailand’s full reopening, expecting to bring in at least 36,000 business visitors from around the world and generate a turnover of 5 billion baht. Thai enterprises are very welcome to explore opportunities and challenges in the face of the ‘Global Food Crisis.’
Dr. Atchaka Sibunruang, Chairman of Thailand Convention & Exhibition Bureau (TCEB) - representative of the Deputy Prime Minister As a recipient from Mr. Anutin Charnvirakul, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Public Healthsays, "This is a good opportunity for Thailand to host ProPak Asia. The exhibition greatly contributes to the country's recovery after easing the covid control measures. International visitors pay attention to this trade show as it is one of the largest event in Asia for industrial products. It will bring investors and entrepreneurs to Thailand and revitalize the MICE industry long affected by the pandemic. More importantly, Thai SMEs, one of the main driving forces of the economy, will be able to explore the latest innovations and technologies, such as automation, IoT, and AI systems for further business development.
Food and beverage industries take center stage at this trade exhibition, showcasing cutting-edge innovations and technologies and running a series of activities during the event. There are also discussions on topics in food production following the global food crisis forcing several countries to stop exporting food products to prevent shortages. Meanwhile, as Thailand has stable food supplies that are enough for domestic consumption and exports, many businesses see trade opportunities in food products. Some organizations and companies are more than ready to provide support and consultations for businesses, such as the Thailand Institute of Scientific and Technological Research; and Food Processing Industry Club, Federation of Thai Industries, etc.”
Mr. Manu Leopairote, Chairman of Informa Markets Thailand, the organizer of ProPak Asia 2022, says, “This year, ProPak Asia receives great responses from over 1,000 exhibitors across the globe. The exhibition space expands from 30,000 square meters in the previous edition to 40,000 square meters to accommodate exhibitors from every corner of the world. At the event, there is a wide range of interesting activities, such as Executive Talk by high-profile executives from various industries in Asia, an international conference on packaging by the World Packaging Organization, a conference on International Food by the Food Science and Technology Association of Thailand, a workshop on product development, and a seminar by Thailand Institute of Scientific and Technological Research.

Furthermore, Sustainability Square features how to integrate sustainability into operating businesses. Idea Theatre invites bloggers, gurus, and experts to share inspirations and ideas for business development.
