IPAMA’s governing council, which met on 22 March 2021, decided to significantly subsidize exhibitor participation in the Printpack India event from 20 to 24 December 2021. The council considered at length the adverse impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the economy and the global print industry and decided to maximize the relief it could extend to exhibitors and especially to its member companies. 

In a recent meet the press event, Dayakar Reddy insisted that membership in IPAMA is extremely easy. He and Prashant Vats also made clear that although they have reduced the cost of participation to exhibitors and especially member exhibitors, the event’s quality in construction and facilities would be even better than earlier Printpack events. These are already the best in the country, thanks mainly to the Greater Noida Exposition Center.

The Printpack India event is the largest graphic arts exhibition in the country and is globally recognized. It attracts substantial participation from several countries with printers looking for Indian manufactured equipment. Global exhibitors equally look at the Indian printers as an important market for their wares.

The basic charges for bare space at the Printpack India event are Rs 8,000 per square meter for bare space and Rs 9,000 per square meter for shell schemes. This time, there are six types of discounts being offered, including early-bird discounts and those for members and associate members. The organizers are also considering some extra facilities to be provided free of charge to both exhibitors and participants.

With the significant costs of the exhibition being the rental of the space at Greater Noida Exposition Center and its facilities, it seems that IPAMA and its governing council are prepared to absorb a loss on this year’s event. Their well-intentioned aim is to contribute to the continuity and revival of the printing and graphic arts industry. 

Thus far, according to IPAMA, the industry has responded positively with 70% of the planned exhibition area already booked. It states that the major industry companies have already remitted the requisite payments for the 15th Printpack India event. 

The exhibitor’s and visitor’s registration web portals have also been developed for the participants’ convenience. All services for exhibitors and participants will be available online for the event in December 2021. Exhibitors can book space after remitting the participation charges and then select the Hall and Stall online. They can download receipts/invoices and can also place orders for additional services. Visitors can fix up their private meetings with exhibitors online in a secure system. The portal will be functional on the IPAMA website in the first week of April 2021.

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.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
