The much-awaited trade fair trio of Paperworld India, Corporate Gifts, and Interior Lifestyle India presented by Ambiente India will take place from 12 – 14 May 2022 at the Jio World Convention Centre (JWCC), as confirmed by the organizers. As the first physical exhibition for the industry after a hiatus of two years of business disruptions, the platform will show the industry’s determination, resilience, and opportunities in the ‘new normal.’

Messe Frankfurt India Trade Fairs India, together with gifts and accessories, the Exhibition Division of Netlink Solutions (India) announced new dates for their leading consumer goods exhibitions, met with overwhelming support from the industry. 

Reopening of schools will be a key theme for the launch of Paperworld India

The new dates allow industry stakeholders additional time to plan while offering safety, confidence, and flexibility to both exhibitors and fair attendees. Moreover, it also secures maximum participation while keeping in mind the period before the reopening of schools which is a key theme for the launch of Paperworld India

On the other hand, the corporate gifting segment is witnessing a renewed demand for health, safety, or work-from-home related gifting products with the timing aligning with pre-festive sourcing for distributors and wholesalers. Interior Lifestyle India, presented by Ambiente India’s homeware and lifestyle products, will thus create perfect synergies with the two fairs. 

With less than two months from the scheduled event, the new Omicron variant has posed a challenging business environment both in terms of safety and business prospects, both of which might compromise the standard of the event. “As organizers, we strongly believe the change in dates will create more favorable trade prospects for exhibitors, ensure additional time to plan with certainty, and enhance business confidence among the fair attendees,” explained Raj Manek, managing director Messe Frankfurt Trade Fairs India. 

Minesh Modi, Wholetime Director, Netlink Solutions (India), said, “We are certain that this brief rescheduling will allow us to come back stronger and offer the industry a platform that meets their business objectives. All eyes are set on the 2022 edition, and we’re completely focused on ensuring a strong return with opportunities for business regeneration.” 

Continuing their aim to provide a safe and conducive environment for trade, Messe Frankfurt India will organize exhibitions under the ‘MFISafeConnect’ standards that are strictly aligned with the government’s health and safety guidelines.


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.
