Pamex gears up for 2024 show

Marks presence at regional and global exhibitions

Continuing on the story of Convergence, Pamex 2024 is extending a special focus on textile printing

The promotional campaigns for Pamex 2024, slated to be held from 6-9 February 2024 at the Bombay Exhibition Centre (BEC) in Mumbai, have gained momentum soon after the 2023 edition’s successful conclusion in March.

Although Pamex is a biennial exhibition, the show is coming back after a year to get back to its original schedule of the first quarter in even years. The decision was a natural corollary to the Print Pack Expo opting to get into its traditional schedule of odd years by announcing the next edition in 2025.

Visiting  or exhibiting in all the major industry-specific trade events throughout the year is an important part of the Pamex promotional plan. Team Pamex has been crisscrossing the world to participate in such events.

The very first event held soon after Pamex 2023 was the Mumbai Mudrak Sangh Lifetime Achievement Award in Mumbai in April. Team Pamex joined the celebration and the felicitation of industry veteran Anand Limaye, and interacted with the industry experts gathered at the event, the organizers said.

Continuing on the story of Convergence, Pamex 2024 is extending a special focus on textile printing. The team met several textile printing machinery manufacturers at Gartex Mumbai held with Screen Print India in Mumbai in May. The industry know-how is best explored and known through trade exhibitions, which bring latest technologies on display. The team also attended Garment Technology Expo Delhi, SITEX Surat, Gartex Delhi and Yarn Expo Tirupur to delve into the roots of the industry.

The signage industry has been a part of Pamex since several editions now. Team Pamex participated in the Sign India Expo Bangalore and interacted with visitors to understand the demands and requirements of the market.

Pamex had a promotional booth at Sino Corrugated China, held in July 2023, where the team got an opportunity to see developments happening all around the global corrugated packaging industry. Private Limited, the co-organiser of Pamex , was one of the media partners for the LMAI Conference held in July in Jaipur. The conference themed around ‘Creativity, Innovation, Sustainability’ saw more than 500 delegates from the label fraternity, coming together for three days of networking and knowledge sharing.

August was a busy month starting with Print Expo held in Chennai and Propak India and Automation Expo in Mumbai. Pamex  had a booth at PackPlus Delhi. In the month of September, Pamex will have its promotional booth at PackPrint International, Bangkok; India Corr Expo, Greater Noida and Kerala Print & Pack, Cochin.

Later in the month of October, Pamex will have a booth at Sri Lanka Print 2023 and  make a presentation at the prestigious Forum of Asia Pacific Graphic Arts (FAPGA) meet where printers from over 16 member countries will converge. All in Print China will be another big event where Pamex will have a promotional booth in the month of November. In the same month, the team will also visit Fespa Eurasia and Interdye & Textile Printing Eurasia being held in Istanbul, Turkey.

Pamex, organised by the All India Federation of Master Printers, in association with Private Limited, is scheduled from 6-9 February 2024 at BEC, Mumbai. The show will feature more than 500 exhibitors from the print, label, flexible packaging, corrugated box manufacturing, textile printing and signage industry.

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.
