Speaking to PrintWeek India, Sheth said the next edition will encompass all the segments of the print industry – printing, packaging, paper converting, flexible, screen and labels. “We have requested authorities of India Expo Mart to expand the site to include two more halls.”
The next edition of PrintPack in 2019 will be held from 1-5 February 2019.
Sheth added, “We hope to make the next show, ‘Asia’s Drupa’. We would like more and more participation from international brands so that our printers do not have to travel long and far to see new technologies.”
The show was driven by a core team – the executive committee of IPAMA for PrintPack 2017. Naveen Gupta, general secretary of IPAMA’s executive committee, the men behind the success of PrintPack 2017, said, “We are overwhelmed by the response from the printer fraternity, who flocked the show and also invested in the machinery that were on display, making the show a big success.”
Sheth complimented his executive committee team, who, he said, “had little time and three main constraints – demonitisation, budget and election. “They overcame all the hurdles to make this show the biggest ever. Kudos to them.”
