Dongguan International Mould, Metalworking, Plastics and Packaging Exhibition (DMP) is the largest exhibition with the most brand awareness and industry influence created by Hong Kong Paper Communication Exhibition Services. Founded for more than 20 years, based on the large machinery manufacturing supply chain production base in the Pearl River Delta, and the rapid development of China’s economy and the transformation and upgrading of the intelligent equipment manufacturing industry, DMP has developed into one of the most influential industrial machinery exhibition in South China and even the Asia-Pacific region. The exhibition area, the number of exhibitors and both local and foreign buyers are increasing year by year. During DMP, a number of high-standard forums, seminars, new product launches, etc. were held, making DMP an event for technology sharing and showcase of new products.
