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.
