China International Stationery and Office Supplies Exhibition
15 – 17 September 2010
Shanghai New International Expo Centre
Over 300 exhibitors confirmed already to participate in Paperworld China 2010
Paper and printing zone doubled in size
In stark contrast to last year, there is a prevailing sense of optimism that a recovery is underway. Supporting this claim, the upcoming edition of Paperworld China, which runs from 15 – 17 September 2010 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre has already 300 confirmed exhibitors taking part from 15 countries and regions including China, Egypt, France, Hong Kong, Indonesia, India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, the UK, the US and Latvia for the first time.
This year’s event welcomes back such notable companies as Acme United, Carl, Comet, Deli, Eagle, Marco, Simbalion, Sunwood, US Ring and World Wide Stationery.
It will also serve as the launching pad for design-driven newcomers like Studio Marine from France, Today’s Writing Instruments from India and FOPI Ltd from Latvia.
FOPI Ltd was eager to be involved in the upcoming edition of Paperworld China as they are confident that the stationery and office supplies markets would begin to improve this year. “This will be our first time to participate in a trade event outside of Europe. We took the decision to take part in this particular exhibition because of its ability to attract key regional and international buyers from department stores, retail chains and supermarkets,“ said Mr Pavels Ustinovics, Managing Director of FOPI Ltd.
“At the fair, we will present FORPUS - our branded line of office products , which includes paper, file folders, dividers, table stationery, labels, envelopes, sticky notes, table organisers, calculators, writing and highlighting implements. In doing so, we hope to gain a foothold in China and other new international markets,” added Mr Ustinovics.
Paper and printing zone doubled in size
Occupying an exhibition area of 5,000sqm, the paper and printing zone has doubled in size this year. Located in Hall E2 of the fairground, here visitors will find a wide selection of printing paper, notebooks, exercise books, paper bags and boxes, wrapping paper, albums, calendars, memo pads, adhesive pads, greeting cards, postcards and recycled paper from over 50 companies including Guangbo, Hopax and Pukka Pads.
Joining these exhibitors will be Hong Kong Dason Paper Products Co Ltd, a Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified company.
“With increased attention being paid to matters of global warming, Paperworld China is receiving a good mix of corporate and retail visitors that are interested in sourcing products that have been ethically produced. We are confident our environmentally friendly range of greeting cards, shopping bags, envelopes and social stationery items will be a popular draw for those firms requiring green business solutions,” noted Mr Calvin So, Director.
Paperworld China is organised by Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co Ltd, China Chamber of Commerce for I/E of Light Industrial Products & Arts-crafts and Guangzhou Foreign Trade South China Exhibition Corp Ltd.
