The PaperEx exhibition to be held from 9 to 12 January 2022 at the India Expo Center in Greater Noida, has been postponed, according to a LinkedIn post by the organizers. The paper exhibition and accompanying conference are considered as a meeting point of the Indian paper manufacturers and allied supplier and user communities. Much awaited by the paper and printing industry, the event was seen by the paper manufacturers and input suppliers as an opportunity to discuss the revival of those segments that have been enduring losses in the past two pandemic years.

The Covid-19 cases in Uttar Pradesh, where the Expo center is located, have doubled in the past two days, according to recent news reports. 572 new cases have been reported from the state in the last 24 hours with the Gautam Buddha Nagar district reporting 101 cases. The India Expo Center in Greater Noida is located across the river from New Delhi and is considered a part of the National Capital Region. 

Hyve India, the organizing company behind the event received a good number of requests in the past few weeks concerning the postponement of the event due to the rising number of Covid-19 cases across the country. Travel restrictions have been progressively imposed by the central and state governments in view of the spread and increase of the Omicron variant.
