Paper One Show Beirut 2019 – The 5th international exhibition of paper industry in the MENA region took place from the 28th to the 30th of January, 2019 at the Biel Centre.

The objectives of the exhibition were to promote trilateral trade relations between Lebanon, the Arab countries and the rest of the world, as well as to promote the Paper One Show brand.

Paper One Show Beirut welcomed 1,703 unique paper industry professionals from 53 different countries.

It was a truly special event, that convened business and investors from various enterprises and institutions of all sizes, both national and international. In a three day exchange, Paper One Show helped foster proactive business to business solutions through a process of qualified matchmaking.

Key decision makers from a diverse range of profiles including traders, distributors, retailers, finished product manufacturers, jumbo roll producers and many more visited and connected at the Biel Centre.

Actively supported by the regional paper industry, the exhibition arena featured leading paper manufacturers, who accounted for over 40% of the regional paper business.

80 internationally recognised companies from 21 countries exhibited this year.

Exhibitors showcased their new technology – with tissue paper, cardboard production, finished products, converting machines, paper mill manufacturing, chemicals, spare parts and accessories all featuring heavily.

It was a privilege to have as supporting associations, the Arab Federation for Paper, Printing and Packaging, the Turkish Pulp & Paper Industry Foundation and the Paper Industry Technical Association.

It was a great honour to have His Excellency, Minister Haj Hasan as the inauguration guest, alongside Dr. Fadi Gemayel, the president of the AFPPPI.

Leading companies such as Eczacibasi Consumer Products as the Platinum and Lanyard sponsor of the event. TPC and Al-Furat Paper Trading were our Gala Dinner sponsors with Innova Tissue and Svecom as Signage and Badge sponsors respectively.

The Paper One Show Gala Dinner, which was on the evening of the second day, was tremendous fun. Sumptuous Lebanese cuisine was served in a historic venue, with traditional musical accompaniment.

The Gala Dinner was attended by over 240 people, composed mostly of exhibitors as well as some of our most important visitors.

Paper One Show is firmly committed to supporting the paper industry and will continue to organise and promote future editions. We will ensure market leaders have a platform to showcase products, exchange ideas and establish strong business connections.
