The Indian Printing Packaging and Allied Machinery Manufacturers’ Association (IPAMA) has announced the new dates for the Printpack India – 20 to 24 December 2021. IPAMA, a registered body under the Societies Act, has been organizing the Printpack exhibition biennially since 1988.

The 15th edition of this international exhibition was originally scheduled at the India Expo Centre, Greater Noida, from 3 to 8 February 2021. Due to the Covid-19 outbreak and pandemic and the ensuing lockdown constraints, IPAMA consulted its members, exhibitors, and concerned institutions regarding the feasibility of holding the exhibition on the scheduled dates but was advised against it. Keeping in view all the facts and circumstances and considering the prevailing conditions across the globe, including the health care of exhibitors and visitors, the Printpack India exhibition was deferred or postponed, and now the new dates have been announced in December 2021.

With the improvement in the prevailing conditions and fast declining trend of Covid-19 cases, and the country’s vaccination drive rollout, the industry is keen to get back to business. Exhibitors, visitors, and other stakeholders had started making emphatic inquiries regarding the Printpack event’s revised dates.

IPAMA held detailed discussions with India Expo Centre (IEML) officials about the availability of Exhibition Halls and other facilities. In consultation with the exhibitors, who had earlier booked space for participation, a proposal regarding the new dates was submitted in the 116th Virtual Meeting of the Governing Council organized on 3 February 2021. The Governing Council approved the following revised dates for the 15th edition of the Printpack India exhibition.

The setting up period to be from 17-19 December 2021; the exhibition period from 20-24 December 2021; and the dismantling period is 25th December 2021. Except for the new dates, the remaining terms and conditions for participation in the PRINTPACK INDIA Exhibition will be as earlier. The revised dates for Early Bird Discount and other benefits, which are to be allowed by the Association, will be finalized shortly. However, considering the Corona impact on the market and supporting the industry, IPAMA has decided to further lower the exhibition charges compared to earlier Editions subject to terms and conditions.

The tariff for bare space is Rs. 8,000 per square meter. There are deductions and discounts for members of 15% (5% for new members). An Early Bird Discount of Rs.1,000 per square meter. A member’s motivational discount of Rs. 1,000/Rs.500 per square meter net rate subject to terms and conditions of Rs. 4,800 per square meter.

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.
