Intensive trade show time at STM Group in Q2 2024

Trade fairs are a great opportunity to showcase your latest projects and developments, which is why STM Group attended two major international events in April and May – Craft Brewers Conference & Brew Expo America in Las Vegas and Hispack in Barcelona. In June, we will visit Latin America, where we will participate in the region’s largest industry trade fairs – Expo Pack in Mexico City and Brasil Brau in São Paulo. The main purpose of the trade fairs in the new markets is to attract customers and agents, but we are also using this time to share our latest developments in canning and bottling products and processing, which we have been working on recently.

The first trade show is the largest gathering for craft brewers and alcohol producers in North America – the Craft Brewers Conference & Brew Expo America. The event, which took place from 21-24 April 2024 in Las Vegas, attracted 9,500 attendees from more than 60 countries. Attending the show was an ideal opportunity for us to meet with the leaders of the craft brewing industry in the US market, thus establishing new relationships and contacts in America, which has huge business potential for us. The CBC 2024 conference also provided us with a significant educational value, during the 4-day event we attended numerous lectures looking at new trends in the alcoholic beverage industry.

Another trade fair – Hispack is the most important trade fair event for the packaging and food industry in Spain. The fair, which took place from 7-10 May 2024, brought together more than 800 exhibitors from 28 countries, 1,250 brands and more than 27,000 visitors at the Gran Via facility in Fira de Barcelona. Significant interest was also generated by our stand shared with Spanish partners Difmaq, Ayrtac and Alimatic. There we presented the latest of STM’s can filling machines – the ArrowCan 14/2 ISO EPV with a nominal capacity of 6,000 cans per hour with a 500ml capacity aimed at small and medium-sized filling comanies in the beer and beverage industry. During Hispacek, we also had the opportunity to discover the latest trends, make new business contacts and learn about innovative solutions that are shaping the future of the industry.

We will be spending the first half of June in Latin America to attend Expo Pack in Mexico City (4-7.06) and Brasil Brau in São Paulo (11-13.06). Mexico is a new destination for us, so we have planned a number of meetings with Mexican customers during the fair, presenting at a stand together with our partner Difmaq. Brasil Brau, on the other hand, is our next trade fair in Brazil, which, like the previous ones, will probably be full of meetings with potential customers, with whom our agent in São Paulo is in regular contact. Please visit stand A27, where we will be available to you from 11-13 June 2024.
