Preview 3 – Yoshiharu Komori at Printpack India 11 to 15 February 2015

IPAMA, NPES and IDEAlliance conferences add color to event


The countdown for Printpack India 2015 has started. The Indian Printing Packaging & Allied Machinery Manufacturers’ Association (IPAMA) is enthused by the response of the printing and packaging industry for the 12th Printpack India exhibition to be held at India Expo Centre, Greater Noida from 11 to 15 February 2015. The more than 300 exhibitors occupying a gross exhibition area of more than 50,000 square metres is likely to attract the biggest B2B attendance ever at an Indian print show.

IPAMA has held more than 40 promotional meetings including road shows, press conferences and has participated in overseas exhibitions like Print Pack Sign Expo in Kenya, interpack in Germany, All in Print China, K-Print in Korea, Print Technology in Malaysia and Bangladesh. Apart from the exhibition, there are several value additionsfor business visitors to the 12th Printpack India – one is the NPES ICC Colour Conference on 12 February; the second is the web offset printing seminar organized by IPAMAandVibesAcademy; and, the third event is the half-day conference on standardization, color management and G7 for brand ownerpackaging buyers and packaging printers and converters on the morning of 14 February 2015 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Delhi. The G7 show jointly organized by IDEAlliance and the BMPA will also take place on the afternoon of 17 February in Mumbai.

While the conferences accompanying the Printpack exhibition increasingly make it a knowledge event, the show itselfwill have a number of running presseswhich make it one of the most exciting shows in the world at a time when many shows are actually shrinking. Apart from the several web-offset and sheetfed presses manufactured by IPAMA members there will be two multicolor sheetfed presses from Komori and a Ryobi-MHI 920 series 36-inch UV-LED curing press shown for the first time anywhere. Another highlight will be Komori CEO Yoshiharu Komori’s presence at the show — reflecting the increasing importance of the show and the Indian market.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
