Unipack AD participated in InterTabac, the world’s largest trade fair for tobacco products and smoking accessories
“InterTabac was once again the meeting place for the international tobacco industry and InterSupply has successfully developed.” That is how Sabine Loos, CEO of Westfalenhallen Dortmund GmbH, summed up the three trade fair days. A total of 11,700 international trade visitors (FKM certified1) visited Messe Westfalenhallen Dortmund from 16 to 18 September. The number of visitors from foreign countries was again remarkably high, as was satisfaction among visitors and exhibitors. InterTabac remains the world’s largest trade fair of its kind and the leading trade fair for the industry.
At InterSupply, visitors were especially interested in raw tobacco, packaging, flavours, additives, and machines for manufacturing tobacco products. This new trade fair grows more and more each year. While the number of exhibitors had already increased to 79 in comparison to the previous year, this year nearly half of all InterTabac visitors stopped by at InterSupply as well.
37 percent of trade visitors came from abroad. Among exhibitors, this was 60 percent at InterTabac and even 70 percent at InterSupply. Visitors hailed from countries such as the Benelux states, Denmark, France, Great Britain, Lithuania, Austria, Poland, Spain, Argentina, Brazil, Iraq, China, Algeria, South Africa, Israel, and the United States.
All German federal states were represented at the trade fair, with large visitor groups from Lower Saxony, Bavaria, Baden-Württemberg, Rhineland-Palatinate, Hessen, and Hamburg.
