Hence, there are more and more international pavilions participating in All in Print China.
In AIP 2016, there were in total 4 international pavilions with 800 sqm display area. In AIP 2018 which will be held on October 24-28, 2018, the number of international pavilions will reach 6, covering more than 3,000 sqm in total.
German is the largest printing market in Europe and ranks the fourth in the world. However, because of the decline of printing price and increase of the cost of ink, paper and energy, German printing industry has entered the period of stagnation. The number of printing staff and enterprises is dropping and there is no obvious turnover increase. By contrast, the printing industry in China as the representative of emerging market is developing fast. Therefore, a large amount of German printing enterprises start to expand China market and seek new business opportunities. In AIP 2018, Germany pavilion will occupy around 800 sqm.
