Labelexpo Global Series organizer Tarsus Group has announced the cancellation of Labelexpo India 2021. The show will now take place on 9-12 November 2022, allowing time for the Covid-19 vaccination program to roll out and for the situation to normalize next year. The show will remain at its existing location at Expo Centre & Mart in Greater Noida – Delhi NCR. 

Labelexpo India Event Director Pradeep Saroha commented: ‘We have taken the decision not to run the show due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Our expectation is that by rescheduling the show a year later, to 9-12 November 2022, the pandemic will be under control, with the industry ready and excited to network and do business again. 

LMAI supports Tarsus’s decision of canceling Labelexpo India 2021

Kuldip Goel, president of LMAI, the Indian Label Association, said, ‘The LMAI fully supports Tarsus’ decision to cancel the event. In light of the current situation with Covid-19, it is the correct and responsible thing to do. We look forward to the whole Indian label and package printing industry coming back together for Labelexpo India in November 2022. The LMAI Awards night will also be postponed to November 2022 to run alongside the show.’

The last edition of Labelexpo India in November 2018 attracted almost 10,000 visitors from 55 countries, with 250 Indian and global-based exhibitors.

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.
