Spotlight on the Hot Picks at Printpack – Show Daily

“Good traction for Printpack India 2019” – CN Ashok

CN Ashok

At a recent meeting in Coimbatore, CN Ashok talking about the upcoming Printpack India exhibition said, “It is shaping up well and it is an important show that is being held at a nice venue. As far as foreign visitors are concerned, Autoprint has received confirmation from many who plan to visit the show. They are Autoprint’s existing dealers and they will come to the show. So, according to me, there is good traction.”

Indeed as the the Printpack Exhibitors tell us more daily about their exhibits, the exhibition is on course to be the most successful edition of this event yet. We are daily updating our Printpack pages with new previews. We are also expecting the new Aqua Line of the Noida Metro that goes to the India Exposition Centre in Greater Noida to be inaugurated before 31 January 2019. Although we have read that the testing is done and there is a wait for the prime minister’s to do the honors, no date has yet been announced. However, iff the inauguration doesn’t take place by 31 January, NMRC will have to reapply for a CMRS clearance, which would need more trials and thus, further delay the Aqua Line’s launch.

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.
