Online visitor registration portal launched for PrintPack 2019

13th PrintPack India 2017

At a meeting with the more than a dozen trade media supporting IPAMA’s PrintPack India 2019 exhibition, the organizers announced that 363 Indian and overseas exhibitors have confirmed their space bookings. The expert committee of the organizers says that it will continue to allot stands in a transparent manner till December 2018. PrintPack India 2019 is expected to cover a gross exhibition area of 50,000 square meters.

On the same day, 7 September 2018, IPAMA also launched its Online Visitor Registration Portal in the presence of IPAMA president Dayakar Reddy, and the Governing Council Member and office bearers of the association. Discussions were held to make the event easier to attend and to take part in as well to create a variety of opportunities for networking and deal making by business visitors.

For online registered visitors there will be no entry fee and eBadges can be printed out by visitors subject to a photo ID for entry. For those who require a visitor eBadge to be printed out at the entry gates, it will be a quick one minute process. In an attempt to encourage eRegistration, forty gifts will be awarded on the basis of lucky draws on each of the six days of the exhibition. Apart from the IPAMA website, our websites will also provide links for online visitor registration. For any queries to IPAMA, please contact its operations director Prashant Vats at +91 9871999384.

2023 promises an interesting ride for print in India

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. While the print and packaging industries have been resilient in the past 33 months since the pandemic lockdown of 25 March 2020, the commercial printing and newspaper industries have yet to recover their pre-Covid trajectory.

The fragmented commercial printing industry faces substantial challenges as does the newspaper industry. While digital short-run printing and the signage industry seem to be recovering a bit faster, ultimately their growth will also be moderated by the progress of the overall economy. On the other hand book printing exports are doing well but they too face several supply-chain and logistics challenges.

The price of publication papers including newsprint has been high in the past year while availability is diminished by several mills shutting down their publication paper and newsprint machines in the past four years. Indian paper mills are also exporting many types of paper and have raised prices for Indian printers. To some extent, this has helped in the recovery of the digital printing industry with its on-demand short-run and low-wastage paradigm.

Ultimately digital print and other digital channels 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. For instance, there is no alternative to a rise in textbook consumption but this segment will only reach normality in the next financial year beginning on 1 April 2023.

Thus while the new normal is a moving target and many commercial printers look to diversification, we believe that our target audiences may shift and change. Like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

Our 2023 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock and reconnect with your potential markets and customers. Print is the glue for the growth of liberal education, new industry, and an emerging economy. We seek your participation in what promises to be an interesting ride.
