Great market opportunities in EMEA, are you ready?

In order to help the printer cartridge Aftermarket expand in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), Recycling Times Media Corporation will hold its next RT Imaging Summit & Expo in Cairo, Egypt on April 23-24, 2017.

This is the first time a dedicated printer cartridge event has been held in the EMEA, so it promises to provide new opportunities and better service for industry players.

Research reveals the printer market continues to grow, despite the slump in the more developed regions like USA and Western Europe. There is a market demand for laser/inkjet MFPs, empty cartridges, copiers products, ribbons and wide format inks as well as copier supplies.

The statistics are quite revealing: revenue from printing cartridges sales in the EMEA in 2012 was US$26.5 billion. In 2014, laser printer shipments increased by 11.3% and inkjet printer shipments increased by 26.1% in Africa. Printer shipments in Turkey increased by 8%, while printer shipments in the Middle East increased by 20%. Overall, the printer market in EMEA region grew at a CAGR of 2.8% every year for the last 4 years.

Recycling Times Media Corporation (known as RT Media), the organizer of the event, has been watching the great potential of the EMEA market. It sees Egypt as a gateway destination for Europe, Africa and the Middle East. Cairo provides excellent access to the entire EMEA region and is a bridge between the Middle East, Europe and Africa, and the rest of the world. For five thousand years, Egypt has been a must-visit destination for traders, tourists and travelers—and it continues to be the perfect location to host a professional business trade show for the printer consumables industry.

Apart from the expo, a summit on industry issues will also be held at the same venue—the InterContinental Hotel CityStars, just 5 minutes from the airport. Industry experts will share their thoughts on the latest technology updates, products, and legal issues. An analysis of the EMEA will also provide up-to-date market information and opportunities.

David Gibbons, Director of RT Media, commented: “As a leading industry news and business source, we can offer an excellent business platform for those wanting to expand their international market. The event will attract visitors from the Mediterranean, the Gulf and across Africa. We have partners in South Africa as well as Egypt who will ensure the success of this event that will also attract suppliers from Europe, Asia and America.”
