Exhibitors reviews on IndiaCorr Expo

IndiaCorr Expo is happening after a gap of two years, the exhibitors and the visitors are very excited about the event. This is the time to reconnect face-to-face with the professionals from the corrugated packaging and folding carton industry. Maintaining the exhibitors’ energy and excitement, Packaging South Asia called a few companies exhibiting and asked them certain things about their plans and expectations.

While speaking with BHS for their display at booth B30, they mentioned, “BHS will present the latest technologies in the corrugation and overview about box plant 2025. We have been participating in IndiaCorr Expo since 2015, and we are expecting many key buyers coming in and expecting good business outcomes from this show. We also heard that there will be no international players in the exhibition, which could impact the inflow of the customer.” 

Deepanshu Goel, founder and managing director at Creative Graphics Solutions, added his inputs, “After a long gap due to the pandemic, we are participating in IndiaCorr Expo and will be available at stall C-4 hall no-14. This time, we are showcasing our special stereos for high ink transfer with special shore hardness, which will help achieve the best solid ink transfer without compromising the compressive strength of the box. Yes, we are aware that Covid-19 is still there, so we will be maintaining the best hygiene and social distancing practices for Covid-19.

In a conversation with Robus India about the exhibition, the company said, “We are eager to meet people at the exhibition after so long and will be displaying a live demonstration of an inline/offline Braille machine for pharma and food packaging. We have been participating in IndiaCorr Expo regularly, and every time we get something new to see. Our Robus team will be available at stand B12.”

Kunal Gandhi, director at CGSASP, added, “ At IndiaCorr Expo, we will be showcasing the CITO Range of products, Policart- anvil covers, Sandon- anilox rollers, Renova-Turborex Pneumatic Brake and Moviroll MRE battery roll pushers, and Leadedge – pre-welded and stitched plate carrier/cliche and cbak cushion mounting tapes. I expect a decent response from this show as there will be a conference happening and hope that it will be good but not as before. Our team will be presenting the products at stand B33 in hall no 14.”

Jai Chandra, managing director at VeePee Graphic Solutions, said, “We will be displaying flexographic printing plates that are used for printing on the corrugated boxes. We are no doubt very excited about this exhibition happening after two years and expecting a decent footfall. Last time, we participated in 2018, and this time we will be available at booth B 27A with our team.”

The company Bobst concluded the conversation and said, “We are showcasing some samples of the packaging solutions that Bobst offers like the Shipper Regular Slotted Cartons (RSCs), Die-Cut box, Fruit and Vegetable Box, E-retail Box, and solutions for the upcoming market of multi-colour high graphic jobs, and quoted liner. No, this is not our first time at IndiaCorr Expo. We have been ICCMA members for many years and have been participating for over 6-8 years.”

“The exhibition is a good way for us to connect with existing customers as we have a good customer base which has grown over the years. It is a good way to inform them about Bobst’s latest offerings, new products, innovations in the pipeline and also gives our brand good visibility and a chance to demonstrate our strengths. Covid-19 was unexpected and has been unsettling for everyone. Our country is gradually getting back to normalcy so there will definitely be some impact. However, a lot of our customers have confirmed their presence and we look forward to meeting them.” 

Visitors coming to the exhibition can meet the representatives from Packaging South Asia at the expo on Stand M- 01.

 

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.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
