Printpack 2019 opens at India Expo Centre on a grand note

A promising 14th edition of Printpack commences


Printpack India 2019 was inaugurated on Friday, 1 February 2019 at 11 a.m. by S Dayaker Reddy, president of IPAMA. He is also the president of various federations and associations across the globe. This is the 14th edition of the show. A total of 509 Indian and foreign exhibitors are participating at the ongoing edition of Printpack India, covering various segments from the graphic arts industry. The event is being organized on a gross area of 65,000 square meters. On this occasion, the business visitors’ guide was also launched by the dignitaries on the dais.

In his inaugural speech, Reddy welcomed the guests of honor, special invitees, exhibitors and business delegates from various countries including GC members of IPAMA and media personnel. He acknowledged the service providers’ role in organizing the show. He also informed that the duration of the show has been increased to six days this time on the demand of exhibitors and business visitors without increasing the space rentals. Hall No. 1 at Printpack is dedicated exclusively to the corrugation industry in which ICPBMA and FCBM are the partners. Similarly, Hall No. 3 has been exclusively earmarked for the label industry in which ALPS is the partner. Reddy said that there were around 100 companies who failed to get a space in the show as it was sold out, two months before the commencement of the exhibition.

He also informed that during the Printpack event, various shows, conferences, seminars, B2B business meets and other related programs will be organized with the support of various associations and organizations.

Note – The exhibition will remain open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day. Business visitors can avail free shuttle services from Botanical Garden to the venue from 08.30 a.m. onwards.

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 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.
