Explore innovative processing and packaging technologies at PPMA Show

Established over 35 years ago, the PPMA Show is recognised as the UK’s largest processing and packaging machinery exhibition. Each September, world-class companies come together to display their latest cutting-edge technologies and solutions in processing and packaging machinery, robotics and industrial vision systems. This year’s show takes place once again in Hall 5 between 24-26 September at the NEC in Birmingham.

The show is a fantastic platform to showcase this rapidly growing industry, with over 300 businesses displaying their latest products, services and technologies to the thousands of visitors expected to attend in September. They will be able to discover state-of-the-art solutions in production, manufacturing and packaging. The PPMA Show covers the full spectrum of the industry; from food, beverage and FMCG to micro-breweries and distilleries and pharmaceuticals, and many more.

The show is organised by Automate UK, which comprises the Processing and Packaging Machinery Association (PPMA), British Automation and Robot Association (BARA) and UK Industrial Vision Association (UKIVA). These three specialist trade associations serve over 550 member and affiliate member companies.

The PPMA Show is designed specifically for decision makers including CEOs, MDs, Directors, Managers, and other key staff members who play vital roles within their companies, including engineers, production specialists, designers, buyers, processing specialists, and project managers.

Krzysztof Brylinski, Technical Manager at Ardo Ltd, said this about last year’s show: “I’ve been here to look for equipment to improve our process. I have found everything I wanted and more, which I can use in my business.”

This year’s three-day exhibition is packed with content, providing visitors with plenty to see and explore. Here’s a flavour of what visitors can expect:

  • Live demonstrations of fascinating new machinery in action.
  • Inspiration and innovative solutions which visitors can integrate into their businesses to streamline processes, improve efficiency, and boost productivity.
  • A full programme of seminars to learn from the industry experts about the latest trends and innovations and how to apply these to their own business.
  • Network with industry experts, peers and potential suppliers to share information and gain valuable insights.
  • Experience the complete production line in action from start to finish, from labelling, filling and packaging to processing, robotics, automation and industrial vision systems.

The ‘smart show’

The PPMA Show in September will be the ‘smart show’ that enables exhibitors and visitors to exchange information via their smart phones. Visitors can scan the QR code on the exhibitors’ stand to access more information about them, such as product and service brochures, catalogues and videos. Scanning the code also automatically triggers an exchange of contact details meaning visitors and exhibitors can get in touch with each other after the show. Automate UK will soon be launching an app for the show which will streamline the visitors show experience.
