Media Expo, India’s largest international trade exhibition of indoor and outdoor advertising and signage solutions, is back after Covid-19. Due to the pandemic, the exhibition dates changed with several postponements, and finally, it is happening again for the printing and advertising industry after a long wait.

The business platform aims to bring together some of the leading global brands and creative professionals to discover some of the path-breaking future technologies in indoor and outdoor advertising and signage solutions.

The Media Expo will take place between 18-20 November at the India Expo Center in Greater Noida. The event organizers say the event has always been a forerunner of the industry, providing impactful buyer-seller interaction and networking combined with great insights about new trends in the industry and new product launches.

The trade show, as it resumes, claims to be the number-one international industry event for the printing and advertising industry. In 2019, Media Expo had a record number of over 17,711 trade visitors and 220 exhibitors from across the globe. This time, the show is expected to be slightly lighter with fewer exhibitors and fewer visitor footfalls as many are still avoiding such events and gatherings.

However, the recent IndiaCorr Expo at Greater Noida in the beginning of November received a higher than expected footfall from around the country. There is great enthusiasm for the industry to return to live events and network, but there is also an element of caution in trying to avoid a resurgence of the pandemic. 

To know more about this exhibition, Indian Printer Publisher called a few exhibitors like ColorJet, Monotech Systems, Kao Chimigraf and asked them about their displays at the event and their expectations. 

ColorJet – Hall 14-15 Stand C01

While speaking with ColorJet, our team came to know that this time it will be unveiling sustainable printing solutions at Media Expo, which are its Vulcan prime-1.6 meter UV Roll to Roll and SoniQ HQ Plus 3.2 meter ultra-high-quality eco-solvent printer.

Apart from this, it is also showcasing the Polo Turbo, a high-speed industrial grade 3.2 meter wide solvent printer with a maximum production speed of up to 2818 square feet an hour, and the Verve LED UV Flatbed Printer, which enables high-quality direct printing on almost any kind of rigid surface, including wood, glass, leather, and ceramic tiles.

ColorJet will be present at Hall 14-15, Stand C01. ColorJet has always actively participated in this trade show, and this time also they are very excited about it.

Monotech Systems Stand J11

Monotech Systems will be available at Stand J11 and will show its Pixeljet Ultron, UV Hybrid printer, and Pixeljet miniRTR, 6-feet wide UV LED Roll-to-Roll printer. Monotech Systems this year will focus on future technologies, innovation and green printing during the Media Expo, 2021.

“Investing in future technologies to meet the consumer needs of today and tomorrow, this has been our motto for the past few years. After nearly one and a half years, we will be meeting with our customers in a physical event. We are both excited and ready to greet the customers as we have a lot to showcase to our customers,” says Manoj Garg, general manager at wide format graphics, Monotech Systems. 

Kao Chimigraf to show its products at Media Expo on Stand H01

At Media Expo, Kao Chimigraf is also exhibiting and will be showing its Inkjet inks and EcoSolvent inks at booth H-01. Kao Chimigraf is basically a sister company of Kao Corporation in Japan and Kao Collins in the US, which is enthusiastic about displaying its inks at the exhibition to visitors from the signage industry.

Marc Granero, Kao’s inkjet sales manager, quoted, “The Indian market has one of the fast-growing companies and it is one of the key markets in the future for the Indian industry. So, we wanted to be there. We also want to provide the customers with the most upcoming technology that we have right now in our hands, and we want Indian customers to enjoy these high-quality products.”

 

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.
