Opening ceremony at Pamex 2015 was an exciting and colorful event

Organized by All India Federation of Master Printers (AIFMP) in association with Print-Packaging.com, Pamex 2017 is now only six months away. After the remarkable success in 2015, when the show was shifted to Mumbai, Pamex is promising to be bigger and better this time.

“With more than six months to go, we are already bigger than the last edition. We are striving to get more companies on board and will make all efforts to make Pamex as huge as possible,” said Tushar Dhote, chairman of Pamex.

To that extent, Pamex has a tie-up with KVN Media, a Chinese company, which is the co-organiâzer of All In Print, China. Their expertise in China’s print industry is proving beneficial for Pamex and a China Pavilion in excess of 1000 square meter is expected at the event this time. “With the Indian printing industry becoming bigger with every passing year, we have more foreign companies looking to expand their interests in India. Pamex 2017 promises to showcase the very best the printing industry has to offer,” said Dhote.

The event is being marketed both in India and abroad. Team Pamex has participated in various Indian and international events such as LabelExpo India, drupa, PrintPack India, Sino Corrugated & Sino Folding Carton, and China Print, among others.

The promotional campaign kicks off with an International Media Week, being organized in New Delhi in the first week of August. The first of its kind event will see international media and associations from several Asian and African countries rubbing shoulders with their Indian counterparts in an event that will focus on the developments in the Indian print industry and also provide an opportunity to the exhibitors to announce to the world, new developments and detailed plans for Pamex.

Extensive promotion through road shows is planned and with coverage across 50 grassroots towns in Maharashtra, Gujarat, Telangana, Andhra, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Uttar Pradesh. At the regional level, promotional events are also planned in Pathankot, Lucknow, Indore, Ahmedabad, Bengaluru and Chennai.

Pamex will also go international this year with events in Colombo and Dhaka. “Online visitor registrations are going better than we expected at this stage. In December, I had said we expect a 100% increase in visitors at the show. It looks like we will surpass that expectation,” said a confident Neetu Arora, director of Print-Packaging.com (P) Ltd.

Pamex 2017 will be held from 18-21 December 2017 at Bombay Exhibition Centre, Goregaon. For more information, visit www.pamex.in or send an email to info@print-packaging.com

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.
