The IndiaCorr Expo and India Folding Carton 2021, one of the first live exhibition events of the print and packaging industry since the pandemic, is currently on at Hall 14 of the modern India Expo Center, in Greater Noida. The co-located exhibitions from 23 to 25 October, are showcasing corrugated paper manufacturers, corrugators, and folding carton equipment and tech manufacturers, as well leading prepress suppliers and converters from across the country.
The response on the first day of the event which is on till Monday evening was simply splendid. Well-versed corrugated carton manufacturers, paper pulp converters, machinery producers, and other visitors visited the much-awaited event organized by Reed Exhibitions. This is the first time that the Indian corrugation industry has come together after a hiatus of around two years due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
Strict Covid-19 precautions observed
Reed Exhibitions has made sure visitors and exhibitors are following the necessary Covid-19 precautions at the event. As one enters Hall 14 of the India Expo Center, there are two persons posted at the gate to measure the body temperature of the visitors. There is a registration counter where unregistered visitors can get their entry passes and at kiosks right beside the registration counter, registered users can print out their passes. Helpful staff is posted near these nodes to sanitize the hands of the people entering the fair premises.
The exhibition also has a specially dedicated Medical Aid kiosk with a well-qualified doctor to address any emergency medical needs of the visitors and exhibitors. The exhibitors have made sure that the event premises are sparkling clean at all times. The floor carpets are being vacuum cleaned at regular intervals and cleaners are making regular rounds to make sure there are no discarded bottles, cups, papers, or any other form of litter anywhere.
In addition, Reed Exhibitions has distributed Ferrero Rocher chocolates at all the exhibitor stalls as a sweet surprise for the participating members.
