PackPlus Delhi is postponed to 17 -19 December 2020 at IEML, Greater Noida

Organizers of PackPlus Delhi 2020 have recently announced the postponement of the event. According to the latest update, the event is now scheduled for 17 to 19 December 2020 at IEML, Greater Noida. The event was earlier scheduled to take place from 28 to 31 October 2020 at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi.

After carefully monitoring the global health crisis related to Covid-19 and allowing the industry more time to prepare, this decision has been taken. The announcement said, “India is demonstrating incredible resilience and professionalism in fighting Covid-19, but we still have much to do in eradicating the virus from our country. During the Unlocking phase, we have observed businesses re-starting their operations and industry, beginning to regain the momentum. However, all this needs time.”

The announcement added, “We are utilizing this time to thoroughly analyze exhibitor and visitor dynamics over recent years. We have taken this into account, and we are planning new approaches and innovations this time. As a result, we are moving PackPlus Delhi to the India ExpoMart (IEML) venue in Greater Noida, where our two Indian flagship events PackPlus and India Warehousing Show (IWS) will run together for the first time.”

According to the organizers, the previous edition of PackPlus Delhi was a success, with almost 350 exhibitors and nearly 20,000 trade visitors.

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.
