PPMA TOTAL Show 2022, the UK’s largest processing and packaging machinery, robotics and industrial vision event, is returning to the NEC Birmingham this Autumn, and will take place from 27 to 29 September.

The three-day event will provide a platform for innovation and live demonstrations of production machinery, act as a central hub for networking, expert knowledge and information share as well as present a rich showground of discovery for visitors seeking new solutions to enhance business performance.

Comprising over 350 exhibitor stands, representing 2,000 brands and incorporating major exhibition brands Pakex and Interphex, visitors to Hall 5 will have unparalleled access to the most comprehensive collection of industry-leading production machinery and smart manufacturing equipment all under one roof.

Showcasing the very latest in production-efficient technology, robotic and vision systems combined with state-of-the-art materials, containers and packaging design, the event caters for visitors from a wide range of sectors, including food and beverage, pharmaceutical, toiletries, building supplies, pet care, FMCG and contract packing.

Visitors to the show will also benefit from a daily programme of educational and opinion-led presentations hosted at the onsite seminar theatre. Centred around the theme ‘The Future Of…’, the schedule of informative interactive discussions, debate, presentations and workshops will be delivered by respected industry experts who will share their knowledge, provide inspiration and offer their own insights into the future of the industry.

PPMA Total Show 2022 will also play host to the PPMA Group Awards. Celebrating the best in machinery innovation, smart manufacturing and business acumen, the awards will be presented to winning and highly recommended companies during the final day of the show.

Commenting on the forthcoming show, Richard Little, PPMA Show Director, says visitors want to get close to the latest technologies – to touch and try, to discover new production-enhancing solutions and to speak one-to-one with applications experts from all aspects of production…

“This is exactly what PPMA TOTAL delivers. We are immensely proud of PPMA Total Show’s long and successful history, and the fact that this will be out 34th show clearly demonstrates that we deliver a winning formula for both exhibitors and our visitor audience alike.”

Mr Little continues: “This year’s event will be no exception, and I look forward to welcoming visitors when the show opens its doors again, walking the aisles, networking with peers and gaining inspiration from all the new technologies and live demonstrations on display.”
