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.
