The show, scheduled to take place from 27-30 March 2023 at Bombay Exhibition Centre (Pamex)

Pamex 2023, the global business platform for the print, label, converting and corrugation industry, is highly awaited not only by the suppliers and exhibitors but also by the buyers and visitors.

The show, scheduled to take place from 27-30 March 2023 at Bombay Exhibition Centre, Mumbai, has already surpassed the total booked area of the last edition. By the end of October, more than 270 companies were on board, with many more in the stage of finalization.

The highlight of the 2023 edition is the theme of the show 

Convergence in Print. Convergence, basically, is a phenomenon that has been happening over the past few years. It has gained tremendous momentum in recent times and is very pronounced today as we come out of the unprecedented global pandemic while merging the technologies seamlessly.

At one end, it is driven by the printers and converters who are looking to diversify into an industry segment beyond their primary focus. On the other, the emerging technologies make it possible for printers and converters to offer newer applications, enhancements and embellishments from their equipment.

These technologies and trends will be witnessed through the exciting display at Pamex 2023, with convenience to interact with technology leaders.


Pamex is planning promotional events in six cities of India. A promotional road show of Pamex 2023 will also see events circled around the theme of Convergence in Print.

The expo team has formed a core group of the leading industry players and stakeholders from the Indian Printing and Packaging fraternity to help design and finalize the locations of the promotional event.

With the feedback from group members Raveendra Joshi, president, AIFMP, Ranesh Bajaj, Vinsak India; Deepak Chawla, Technova; Tushar Dhote, Dhote Offset; Amit Sheth, Intergraphic Sales & Services; Harveer Sahni, Weldon Celloplast; Abhishek Bhatnagar, HP; Manish Desai, Mudrika Labels; Hemanth Paruchuri, Pragati Pack; Pawandeep Sahni, Omet India; Nitin Vani, Print Consultant; Sonal Khurana, S Media Group- Print & Publishing and Anil Arora, – the promotional events are being planned in Guwahati, Ahmedabad, Pune, Haridwar, Indore and Bangalore.

These cities that serve as the regional hub for the industry, will see a Pamex-led one-day table-top exhibition and a half-day conference in coming months. Organized in partnership with local associations, these events will see printers, converters and suppliers openly discuss the pros and cons of adopting ‘Convergence in Print’ and map the tangible benefits, thereby boosting the confidence for new investments in these equipment and technologies.

The first promotional event is scheduled to happen in Guwahati on the 27th of November, co- located with North East Print Tech 2022, at Maniram Dewan Trade Center. 

Ahmedabad will be the next stop, where the table-top exhibition and conference is planned for 9 December 2022, to be followed by Pune in the same month on 23 December 2022.

The dates of other cities will soon be announced and details of the same will be available on

Pamex will also play host to a glittering awards ceremony at the Gala Exhibitors’ evening on 29 March 2023.

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.
