Information comes to us on 24 January 2022, that the IPAMA governing council meeting convened on 17 January 2022 decided to postpone the Printpack India exhibition from its March 2022 dates to 26 to 30 May 2022. The organization’s press release says, “Keeping in view the prevailing conditions and recommendations of the exhibitors, associate partners and in consultation with the officials of India Expo Centre, the governing council decided to postpone the Exhibition for one or two months and organize it at the India Expo Centre from 26 to 30 May 26 2022 which appears a safe period for the exhibitors and all other concerned parties, including the business visitors who are the backbone of any exhibition.

The leading companies and exhibitors of the industry have assured that they remain invested and will be present at the Fifteen Printpack India exhibition. The organizers expect the event to be unique and highly innovative as it will be the first major Indian printing industry exhibition after the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic.

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.
