These Associations are the Association of Label Printers & Suppliers (ALPS); the Indian Paper Corrugated & Packaging Machinery Manufacturers’ Association (ICPMA); and the Screen Printers’ Association of India (SPAI). Most of the Associations represent myriad segments of the graphic arts industry. All three have wholeheartedly agreed to provide "full support to IPAMA."
IPAMA claims to have included all the segments of the industry in the exhibitor profile of PrintPack. An IPAMA press release states, “This has been done for the first time. Perhaps, there is no exhibition in the world which incorporates all the segments of the industry in its display profile.”
