Gulf Print & Pack
Gulf Print & Pack 2024 takes place at the Dubai World Trade Center on 9-11 January 2024.

Registration has opened for Gulf Print & Pack 2024, the Middle East and North Africa’s leading exhibition for the commercial and package print sectors. The show is free to attend for all visitors and takes place at the Dubai World Trade Center on 9-11 January 2024.

Gulf Print & Pack brings together PSPs, commercial and packaging printers, designers and print buyers from across the MENA region looking to view the latest technology in action, including wide format printers, digital corrugated, cut sheet inkjet, package printing presses and digital embellishment systems.

Visitors to Gulf Print & Pack 2024 will be able to learn how to enter new and profitable niche markets in the fastest growing sectors of print, everything from digital textiles and wall coverings to labels, packaging and on-demand book printing. Another key trend to be highlighted is digital embellishment of cut-sheet commercial work, folding cartons and labels.

Barry Killengrey, Gulf Print & Pack event director, said: “We’re delighted to be back on the biennial calendar for the first time since the pandemic. During this time, the printing industry has evolved immensely, with exciting new trends such as digital embellishment emerging, and this has intensified the appetite to see more advances in digital technology, automation and workflow capabilities.”

Killengrey continued, “The last Gulf Print & Pack event was held in June 2022, when it attracted leading graphic arts suppliers from across the globe and over 7,500 international visitors. 

“With the milder climate, January is the ideal time to plan a business trip to Dubai and kick-start new business here.”

Jade Grace, managing sirector of Labelexpo Global Series said, “We’re excited to be running Gulf Print & Pack again. We are seeing a key trend developing in the MENA market, which is the transition to digital, not only for print and post-print equipment, but also for workflows that will be showcased on the show floor.”

“Visitors can expect to see the latest technology of on-demand book, photobook production, labels and package printing and digital printing of fabrics and floor tiles. MENA is a key global market for the commercial and package print industries and Gulf Print & Pack in Dubai remains our most important event in this region.” 

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.
