Spring into Trade Show Season in North America

Info*Flex, NPE, drupa, and the W&H and GARANT In-house EXPOs

Prep those passports, lace up your sneakers, and get ready for a spring filled with tradeshows and high step counts! We’re looking forward to connecting with so many of you, having fruitful conversations, and unveiling some exciting new technologies.

Get in the Loop! W&H and GARANT In-house EXPOs in Lengerich during drupa 2024.

The major headliners for our upcoming season include 3 big shows, alongside the W&H and GARANT In-house EXPOs.

We will kick off with flexography at the FTA Info*Flex from May 5-8 in Kansas City, MO, where the North American flexographic industry comes together annually. Visit our team in Booth 205 to discuss your challenges and goals, and to get insights into new announcements in Germany later in the month.

Running simultaneously, from May 6th to 10th, is NPE, North America’s largest plastics tradeshow, which is back in Orlando after a six-year hiatus. Our exhibit will focus on MDO, automation, retrofits, circular economy products, PCR, our ESG strategy, etc. An international team of W&H experts in film extrusion, package printing, and converting will be available.

Then it’s off to Germany! Mark your calendar for drupa, the world’s biggest printing tradeshow in Dusseldorf (May 28 - June 7). W&H and GARANT will be in Hall 15 Booth 51 and introducing new machinery with live demos. Make sure to come by!

Less than two hours to the North are the W&H and Garant Innovation Centers in Lengerich, where we’re holding In-house EXPOs for four days during drupa. The Expos give visitors the unique opportunity to see the full range of W&H machinery running live demonstrations in one place: multiple printing processes, blown and cast film extrusion, and converting technologies. Down the road at the Garant EXPO, their full range of paper packaging machinery will be on display (see page 6).

One highlight we can share is a very rare event. For the first time, the VISTAFLEX II will temporarily be in Lengerich and running demos at the In-house EXPO. Thank you to the machine’s owner, Glen Galloway, from Bema Inc., for letting us showcase the press before shipping it to his plant in Elmhurst, IL.
