About the Event

This November, the international can making industry will experience Virtual Asia CanTech 2020.

An industry first from Bell Publishing, the publisher of CanTech International magazine and can making trade shows Asia CanTech and CanTech The Grand Tour, Virtual Asia CanTech brings the industry-leading event directly to you. Asia CanTech has been reconfigured due to the on-going travel restrictions associated with the Covid-19 pandemic.

As a result, Asia CanTech has been reborn as a one-day virtual event, where delegates have the opportunity to network with the who’s who of the industry, view conference webinars and access the virtual tabletop sessions, all from the comfort of your own computer screen. Virtual Asia CanTech will be able to be accessed for one month after the event, maximising commercial opportunities for suppliers, and providing delegates the opportunity to interact with show material at a time which is convenient to you.

Join the virtual revolution and experience Asia CanTech 2020...
