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

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.
