Like most of the printing and packaging industry, we are gearing up for the biggest Indian print and packaging trade show – Printpack India 2019 that takes place from 1 to 6 February at the Expo Centre in Greater Noida. Once again in our proverbial backyard, the Expo Centre is now the preferred destination for many of the best industrial shows in the country. And the long awaited Delhi-Noida Metro should be operational by 25 December 2018, which means that it will be a welcome and useful convenience for visitors to show that will add to the strength of PrintPack – already the premier show for our industry in the subcontinent.

Most importantly, for this exciting show we will be producing THE PRINTPACK INDIA SHOW DAILY on all the six days of the show. With 19,800 square meters of net show space already sold, the net show space is expected to reach 23,000 square meters – an increase of close to 40% over the hugely successful show in 2017. In the past three shows, the visitor numbers have grown by at least at 15% at every subsequent show. The organizers are very optimistic and looking to get an unprecedented footfall of as many as 100,000 visitors to the show this time.

IPAMA, the organizers of the show, are hosting delegations from Nigeria, Egypt, Palestine, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka with special discounts and promotions. We expect that there will be some visitors from Pakistan as well. A hassle free registration process is guaranteed by the organizers and online registrations are being received daily. On 2 February 2019, the second day of the exhibition, the India Print Business Outlook Conference organized by the Association for Print Technologies will take place. On all the days of the event, knowledge conferences and talks will be held on the show floor itself.

In terms of what will be shown and demonstrated at PRINTPACK INDIA 2019, the show is extremely promising with an increasing number of global equipment, consumable and software manufacturers amongst the nearly 400 exhibitors (387 as of the end of October) who have already committed to the show. We expect our digital email previews entitled the THE PRINTPACK INDIA SHOW DAILY preceding the event to become a valuable accessory to the even more impactful print daily to be distributed in large numbers on all the six days of the show.

We invite support to both the digital version of the THE PRINTPACK INDIA SHOW DAILY for those looking forward to attracting informed interest from the widest variety of visitors ever to the most comprehensive Indian print show thus far. We solicit strong support from IPAMA members and from all exhibitors for THE PRINTPACK INDIA SHOW DAILY. For more information and to take this forward, please contact ads1@ippgroup.in.

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.
