Gearing up for CCE 2025

Propelled by a 23% increase in visitor numbers from the previous co-located edition in 2023, CCE International is poised to take centre stage from 11 – 13 March 2025, in Munich, Germany.

Co-located once again with ICE Europe, this edition of CCE International will showcase an enhanced print experience, with an extended range of print-focused offerings, promising an immersive and enriched experience.

When it comes to industry dynamics, it has been widely acknowledged, that the corrugated and folding cartons sector weathered a challenging period in 2022 and 2023, especially in Europe. Amidst the downturn of experiencing a cumulative 10% dip in corrugated demand and a more tempered drop for folding cartons, however, a silver lining emerges as demand steadies, reaching 2019 and 2020 levels for corrugated and folding cartons. With cautious optimism, the industry looks ahead to the current year, foreseeing a 2% growth for folding cartons and 1.9% for corrugated, driven by organic growth and a noteworthy shift towards plastic substitution.  As the industry gears up for the upcoming show, there’s a strong hint that this growth momentum will continue throughout 2025, adding an extra layer of anticipation and excitement.

“Generating growth in the corrugated and folding carton industry demands resilience in overcoming challenges, a dedicated commitment to sustainability, and a strategic embrace of digitalisation. The recent EU agreement represents a collective drive toward a greener future, positioning the cardboard industry as a crucial player in Europe’s sustainable evolution. This is precisely why CCE International plays a pivotal role, serving as a dynamic platform that not only fosters industry engagement and participation, but also serves as a catalyst for technical innovation and inspiring ideas involving hot topics, such as sustainability,” states Patrick Herman, Event Director of the Converting, Paper and Print Events, representing the organizers RX.

Suppliers of machinery and equipment, such as Baysek Machines, Höcker Polytechnik, Messersi Packaging, Bahmüller, Pentatech, Gazella Atlantique, CUIR Corrugated, and many more have confirmed their participation.
