IPAMA acknowledges the printing and packaging industry’s overwhelming response to 15th Printpack India, slated to be held from 11 – 15 March 2022. 80% area has already been booked. 6,000 square meter area is in the pipeline. Major players have already confirmed their bookings and deposited the requisite amount.

Dec 15, 2021, was the last day to avail early bird discount in Printpack – said to be India’s most reputed event of printing and packaging industry. The Indian Printing Packaging & Allied Machinery Manufacturers’ Association (IPAMA) had announced the revised dates of 15th Printpack India exhibition, in the month of October 2021, in consultation with the exhibitors, business visitors, and the allied partner associations/federations.

In a limited time period, a tremendous response is said to have been received from the industry. With a view to extending financial relief to the industry in the Covid-19 period, IPAMA had brought down the space charges to the lowest level so that more and more companies, particularly from the MSME sector, could participate in the exhibition and give momentum to their business. Simultaneously, it had also announced various discounts, including the early bird discount at the rate of Rs1000 per square meter, to all the exhibitors. The last date for availing of the early bird discount expired on 15 December 2021.

Before the expiry of the last date of the early bird discount, 55 companies had booked their space by remitting the requisite space charges. This shows the craze and the importance of the show amongst the Indian companies, who are engaged in manufacturing printing, packaging, and allied machinery, for participation in the show.

The past editions each had provided a unique platform to the exhibitors for displaying the latest technology and high-quality products. For the convenience of the exhibitors, IPAMA has provided the facility of submitting online applications for space booking. More than 80 percent of the space has already been booked.

The process of allotment of Stalls is going on. Out of the total 407 bookings, more than 200 companies have already been allotted stall numbers and conveyed through eMail and WhatsApp messages in accordance with their priority numbers. Within the next few days, the process of allotment of 400 stalls will be done.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
