PRINTPACK INDIA
The 13th edition of Printpack India at India Expo Center in Greater Noida

The Indian Printing Packaging and Allied Machinery Manufacturers Association (Ipama) is organizing the 15th edition of the Printpack India exhibition and the first edition of The India Sign & LED Expo 2021 from 3 to 8 February 2021 at the India Expo Centre in Greater Noida. The exhibition rates are competitive compared to the other exhibition in the industry organized by various organizers. In addition, Printpack continues to bring in new sectors and associations at every biennial event making the show ever more comprehensive to the entire range of print, signage, label, and packaging sectors.

By the middle of June 2020, 270 companies have already booked their space for the February 2021 event. Even during the lockdown conditions, a dozen more companies have committed to the event and reserved their space.

Dayaker Reddy, president of Ipama, says, “Ipama is not only an association but also a family of printing and packaging machine manufacturers, which dedicatedly works for its Industry. I assure all the companies that Ipama will not leave its members or industry alone. Even at the time of demonetization, we offered companies’ various facilities for easy participation in Printpack India, and it was a hugely successful event. Corona is a temporary hurdle, and the 15th Printpack India will be a grand successful event and a mini world show of the graphic arts industry.”

Exclusive halls are reserved for the label and corrugation sectors of the industry, and Ipama has signed agreements with several more associations for the active participation of their specific segments. Agreements have been signed with The Federation of Corrugated Box Manufacturers of India (FCBM) for a corrugation Hall; with the Association of Label Printers and Suppliers (ALPS) for a Label Hall; and, The Screen Printers Association and Screentex Magazine for a Screen Printing Zone at the February 2021 event.

Ipama is also organizing its first expo on Signage Industry to be called The India Sign & LED Expo 2021, during Printpack India 2021. Ipama has signed an agreement with Sign & Graphic Magazine and Buysell Interactions for Signage Industry. Being an event comprising associations, Printpack India is the most economical exhibition. It is widely accepted by visitors in India and the Asia subcontinent and attracts visitors from the Middle East and Africa as well.

Keeping in view, the difficulty of any graphic arts-related exhibition achieving success in India in 2020, Printpack India 2021 in early February of that year looks likely to succeed again as the industry emerges from the Covid-19 pandemic and looks to bounce back in 2021 and 2022.

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.
