First-time participant at the fair Rajiv Manchanda, managing director, Mac Media Expositions shares, “We heard a lot of positive reviews about the show and felt it would be a good platform for a new company like us to interact directly with the key customers. It would surely be a right medium to display our skills, product scopes and grow our brand awareness.”

Exhibitors from China, Korea, Russia and Taiwan will occupy over 20% of the exhibition space. Keeping innovation at the forefront, many companies will be launching new products which will be of special interest to the visitors. Some of the highlights include the launch of fiber laser metal cutting and marking machine by Atcore Tech Solutions, aesthetically designed acrylic LED letters with superior crack resistance for long lasting usage by Gogia Print-O-Grafix, McCal coloured vinyl for backlit signage and Meanwell LED power supply by Sun Sign & Technologies, latest advancements in LED printers and samples of Reggiani soft signs by Arrow Digital, among many others.

Eco-friendly fabrics that are compatible with eco-solvent, UV & Latex and direct dye sublimation machines will also be showcased at the fair.

Avery Dennison will show their recently launched MPI 3800 architectural wall film at the fair.

“With the launch of our latest product, Avery Dennison MPI 3800, this event comes at the right time. It is the best opportunity for us to present solutions to our customers in printing, advertising and signage industries. We are confident to gain great mileage and exposure through this event,” says Shamrendra Kumar, business head – graphics, Avery Dennison India.

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.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
