The response of exhibitors and participants to PrintPack 2017 has been very good so far with eight halls already sold out. The demand for the event is reflected from the fact that organizers are accommodating exhibitors in the waiting list in Hall No. 9. PrintPack 2017 has all the makings of an even larger show than the last edition and the graphic arts industry can rightfully expect a lot more from the event this time.
To promote the development of the graphic arts industry, specially the SME sector, IPAMA has extended a few concessions to the domestic participants. Space rental has been reduced by Rs. 500 per sq. m for domestic participants only. Exhibitors who had earlier booked space in the larger and costlier Shell category now have the option to relocate to the smaller Bare space and make neat savings.
IPAMA has decided with immediate effect that the ceiling of booking of minimum 60 sq. m of exhibition space under the ‘Bare Space Scheme’ has now been reduced to 30 sq. m. The exhibition space below 30 sq. m of space booked by the participants will be covered, as usual, under the ‘Shell Scheme’. This benefit will be applicable to all the participants who have booked more than 30 sq. m of space and are willing to construct their stand on bare space.
Additionally, there is also a concession of 50% on power charges; domestic participants need to pay only Rs. 250 per day, which can fetch them substantial savings.
PrintPack India is a 5-day event, scheduled from 4-8 February 2017, at the India Expo Centre and Mart in Greater Noida. The event showcases products like inpress, postpress, finishing, converting, digital and signage and packaging machines, all under one roof in the packaging materials, printing and publishing, paper and paper products, logistics and transportation industries.
