First PAMEX 2017 road show held in Amritsar

The first road show to promote PAMEX 2017 took place in Amritsar. The event was organized by AIFMP in association with Offset Printers Association – Ludhiana along with several regional printing associations including Jalandhar Printers Association, Amritsar Offset Printers Association, Pathankot Printer Association, The Association of Printers –Batala, and Printing Press Association-Mukatsar Sahib.

PAMEX 2017 road shows will cover over 50 grassroot towns in Maharashtra, Gujarat, Andhra, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Uttar Pradesh. At the regional level, promotional events are planned at Lucknow, Indore, Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chennai and Hyderabad. This year’s PAMEX will also go international with events in Dhaka and Colombo.

PAMEX 2017 will be held in Mumbai from 18-21 December.

Meanwhile, Mumbai Mudrak Sangh during its annual general meeting held in Mumbai on 28 September announced its team for managing committee. Tushar Dhote is the president, Pramod Parulkar is the senior vice president, and Ashok Holkar is the vice president.

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.
