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.

Promotions

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, Print-Packaging.com – 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 www.pamex.in

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

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.
