Registration has opened for Gulf Print and Pack 2022, the MENA region’s leading exhibition for the commercial and package print sectors. The show will be held between 24-26 May 2022 at the Dubai World Trade Center. Visitors can register free by clicking here. 

Gulf Print and Pack bring together suppliers of the full range of commercial and package printing equipment, including wide format roll and sheetfed digital presses, label and flexible packaging converting equipment, finishing and embellishing systems, and print productivity software.  

Décor Lounge is a special feature of Gulf Print and Pack

Alongside a range of educational features on industry trends and workflow automation, a special feature of the show is the Décor Lounge, where suppliers will exhibit the full range of growth opportunities for commercial and packaging printers. Visitors will be able to experience everything from digital textile and fabric prints to digitally printed wallpaper, corrugated furniture and display units, digitally embellished luxury packaging, and personalized photobooks. 

Commented Barry Killengrey, Gulf Print and Pack, show director, “The eagerly awaited return of Gulf Print and Pack will again provide the ideal platform to network and conduct business between print industry peers. Visitors will be able to see the latest innovations and trends and absorb the wisdom from our innovators and industry influencers.” 

Lisa Milburn, managing director of Labelexpo Global Series, the Gulf Print & Pack organizer, said, “Dubai is an excellent central location for visitors from across the Middle East and the African continent to see the latest print industry technology. Dubai is already a hub for many global suppliers servicing the wider Africa and MENA region, and all the key international players will be present at this exciting show.” 

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.
