Tarsus Group, the organizer of Labelexpo India, has confirmed on 4 November 2020 that the upcoming edition of the show will now take place from 16 to 19 November 2021, at India Expo Centre, Greater Noida, Delhi NCR.

Lisa Milburn, managing director of Labelexpo Global Series, said, “The health and safety of exhibitors, visitors and staff remains our top priority, and we have been monitoring the ongoing impact of coronavirus in India over the last few months. Postponing Labelexpo India by a year means that we will be able to run the safest and highest quality event the industry expects from us.”

“In taking this decision we considered our wider show portfolio and acted on the advice of our local partners, the venue, the health authorities, and exhibitors. We are grateful to them all for their continued support and look forward to working with them on the 2021 edition of the show. Crucially, this event – as is the case with our other Labelexpo shows around the world – will play a vital role in driving the economic recovery of the region’s label and package printing industry, plus its supply chain, post coronavirus.”

Kuldip Goel, president of the Label Manufacturers Association of India (LMAI), echoed, “From a converter perspective, I, as well as the industry, are very much looking forward to Labelexpo India 2021, which will be an extremely important catalyst in the industry’s recovery post coronavirus. We are delighted to lend our support to this much-needed event and urge the industry at all levels to get involved – suppliers, manufacturers and converters.”

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.
