Pamex 2017

Organized by All India Federation of Master Printers (AIFMP) in association with Print-Packaging.com (P) Ltd Pamex 2017 is now only six months away. After the remarkable success in 2015, when the show was shifted to Mumbai, Pamex is promising to be bigger and better this time.

“With more than six months to go, we are already bigger than the last edition. We are striving to get more companies on board and will make all efforts to make Pamex as huge as possible,” said Tushar Dhote, chairman of Pamex.

To that extent, Pamex has a tie-up with KVN Media, a Chinese company, which is the co-organi​zer of All In Print, China. Their expertise in China’s print industry is proving beneficial for Pamex and a China Pavilion in excess of 1000 square meter is expected at the event this time. “With the Indian printing industry becoming bigger with every passing year, we have more foreign companies looking to expand their interests in India. Pamex 2017 promises to showcase the very best the printing industry has to offer,” said Dhote.

The event is being marketed both in India and abroad. Team Pamex has participated in various Indian and international events such as LabelExpo India, drupa, PrintPack India, Sino Corrugated & Sino Folding Carton, and China Print, among others.

The promotional campaign kicks off with an International Media Week, being organized in New Delhi in the first week of August. The first of its kind event will see international media and associations from several Asian and African countries rubbing shoulders with their Indian counterparts in an event that will focus on the developments in the Indian print industry and also provide an opportunity to the exhibitors to announce to the world, new developments and detailed plans for Pamex.

Extensive promotion through road shows is planned and with coverage across 50 grassroots towns in Maharashtra, Gujarat, Telangana, Andhra, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Uttar Pradesh. At the regional level, promotional events are also planned in Pathankot, Lucknow, Indore, Ahmedabad, Bengaluru and Chennai.

Pamex will also go international this year with events in Colombo and Dhaka. “Online visitor registrations are going better than we expected at this stage. In December, I had said we expect a 100% increase in visitors at the show. It looks like we will surpass that expectation,” said a confident Neetu Arora, director of Print-Packaging.com (P) Ltd.

Pamex 2017 will be held from 18-21 December 2017 at Bombay Exhibition Centre, Goregaon. For more information, visit www.pamex.in or send an email to info@print-packaging.com

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
