Paper Show 2019
An across-the-board success!

The Bosta Paper Show has had a large and loyal fan base for years now, with both exhibitors and visitors attending in great numbers. Exactly one hundred and two businesses took part in the 23rd edition on 20 and 21 January, while the total number of registered visitors was 1350. Wonderful results for the industry’s leading trade show, an event that brings together suppliers and buyers.

Putting the spotlight on innovations
For the second time in a row the Paper Show descended on the Nekkerhal in Mechelen: a place with plenty of pluses, from its strategic and easily accessible location to its spacious and versatile main hall. For the occasion, the hall was reimagined as a creative, colourful space, with nicely decorated booths vying for attention. Real eye-catchers from household names flanked by great-looking booths from smaller, lesser-known exhibitors. In short, a varied offer that catered to every taste.


A real boost for the Simba House
True to tradition, Sunday was family day. Visiting buyers could leave their children safely in the care of the SOS Children's Villages’ booth, the charity to which Bosta and the sponsors donate a considerable sum every year. Another tradition that was upheld, as its ambassador Kim Gevaert accepted the symbolic cheque of 14,000 euros. The entire amount raised goes to the Simba House for children from vulnerable families.


Mixing business with pleasure
The trade show’s trademark convivial atmosphere once again enticed visitors into taking plenty of time to discover the new products presented by the suppliers. Exhibitors pulled out all the stops to showcase their range: from stationery products and greeting cards to office supplies and hobby products. The restaurant, too, served a variety of dishes to satisfy everyone’s hunger. Another complimentary service, along with free parking. There is no other trade show that pampers its audience quite like this.

Prime products pick up prizes
Eight products picked up a much-coveted Paper Show Award at the yearly ceremony hosted by Bosta and Script. After a rigorous screening and assessment, the professional jury chose to award these companies: Despec, Legamaster, Herma, Bic, PaperClip, AccoBrands and Exaclair.

A must-attend rendez-vous
A great turnout, satisfied visitors and exhibitors, fascinating innovations, sublime catering, … the Paper Show once again was a resounding success. Ultimate proof, if any were needed, that the sector craves a trade show that keeps a finger on the pulse of its industry.

Paper Show Awards Praising the prize-winners

Nearly 70 products competed for an award in the yearly competition organized by Bosta and trade magazine Script. The jury selected products that excelled in terms of design or ergonomics, creativity or renewal. There were 8 categories in all:

1.    office machines
2.    office supplies
3.    stationery products
4.    writing utensils
5.    greeting cards
6.    hobby & crea
7.    leather goods and school bags
8.    Responsible Office

1. Office machines
Olympia ProHome (Despec Benelux)

ProHome is a do-it-yourself alarm kit with a range of smart functions that you can access via a handy screen or an app on your mobile device. You can use it to secure your windows and doors from intruders. Or to connect other devices such as smoke detectors, cameras and videophones in next to no time. The system works wirelessly over the internet and is protected against power outages. Its main advantages are ease of use, versatility and expandability.

2. Office supplies
Legamaster Space-Up Writing Collection

Space-Up eliminates the traditional whiteboard with its limited dimensions and applications. Space-Up’s magnetic writing surfaces allow users to share ideas and let their creativity run wild. A must in any contemporary office that puts visualization, brainstorms and collaboration front and centre. The collection consists of three products: the XL-whiteboard for intensive usage, the Board-Up, which allows you to combine several boards to your heart's content, and the self-adhesive Wrap-Up which adapts to any surface.

 

3. Stationery products
Herma Weatherproof Labels

These robust labels have been designed to withstand even the most demanding conditions. They are weather and temperature resistant, oil and dirt repellent, and adhere to even the most difficult surfaces with an extremely strong bond. Perfect for outdoor applications on metal, plastic and even rough, damp and dusty surfaces.

4. Writing utensils
Bic 4 Colours Velours

Every year, Bic reinvents its classic 4-colour ballpoint pen. With its velvety body accents, the 2019 version certainly hits the ground running. The models ooze jungle from every pore, with the special, 3D-printed permanent imprint guaranteed to sway even the most trend-aware writers. The concept was devised in collaboration with a trendsetting agency.

5. Greeting cards
Paper Lace (PaperClip)

The existing Paper Lace collection received a nice upgrade. The greeting cards contain laser-cut images. This process results in a highly sophisticated card with a delicate lace effect. A coloured insert makes the design stand out even more. Bits of shiny foil, bows and rhinestones add a touch of luxury. On top of that, there are 52 different designs to choose from – both square and rectangular ones.

6. Hobby & crea
Kodak Magnetic Photo Paper (Despec Benelux)

Despec won two awards. In this category, they won the day with Kodak magnetic photo paper. A product that turns your best moments into lasting memories. The paper adheres seamlessly to most surfaces, delivering particularly vivid colours and pin-sharp text. The bundled software lets you personalize your designs with your own photos, graphics and text.

7. Leather goods and school bags
Kensington Secure Trek 15.6” Laptop Backpack (ACCO BRANDS ESSELTE)

The Kensington black nylon backpack sports a compact, ergonomic design with a padded back section. Great for storing your laptop, with room to spare for a change of clothes. Handy compartments provide space for accessories like pens, chargers, business cards and more. This backpack’s main attraction, however, is the SecureTrek security system to lock the zippers. The zipper on the laptop compartment, by the way, is rock-solid and impossible to pierce.

8. Responsible Office
Digital Colour Printing Green Clairefontaine 100% recycled (EXACLAIR)
This glossy paper is ideal for printing photos. Unlike traditional photo paper, this recyclable version is 100 percent environmentally friendly. Small wonder it was awarded three labels: FSC, Ecolabel and Blue Angel. The paper guarantees excellent colour reproduction and high whiteness. In short, a truly green product with excellent print results.
