IPAMA acknowledges the printing and packaging industry’s overwhelming response to 15th Printpack India, slated to be held from 11 – 15 March 2022. 80% area has already been booked. 6,000 square meter area is in the pipeline. Major players have already confirmed their bookings and deposited the requisite amount.

Dec 15, 2021, was the last day to avail early bird discount in Printpack – said to be India’s most reputed event of printing and packaging industry. The Indian Printing Packaging & Allied Machinery Manufacturers’ Association (IPAMA) had announced the revised dates of 15th Printpack India exhibition, in the month of October 2021, in consultation with the exhibitors, business visitors, and the allied partner associations/federations.

In a limited time period, a tremendous response is said to have been received from the industry. With a view to extending financial relief to the industry in the Covid-19 period, IPAMA had brought down the space charges to the lowest level so that more and more companies, particularly from the MSME sector, could participate in the exhibition and give momentum to their business. Simultaneously, it had also announced various discounts, including the early bird discount at the rate of Rs1000 per square meter, to all the exhibitors. The last date for availing of the early bird discount expired on 15 December 2021.

Before the expiry of the last date of the early bird discount, 55 companies had booked their space by remitting the requisite space charges. This shows the craze and the importance of the show amongst the Indian companies, who are engaged in manufacturing printing, packaging, and allied machinery, for participation in the show.

The past editions each had provided a unique platform to the exhibitors for displaying the latest technology and high-quality products. For the convenience of the exhibitors, IPAMA has provided the facility of submitting online applications for space booking. More than 80 percent of the space has already been booked.

The process of allotment of Stalls is going on. Out of the total 407 bookings, more than 200 companies have already been allotted stall numbers and conveyed through eMail and WhatsApp messages in accordance with their priority numbers. Within the next few days, the process of allotment of 400 stalls will be done.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
