Paperex 2022 postponed, will be held from 10 to 13 May 2022

By 08 Jan 2022

Paperex 2022, scheduled to be held on 9-12 January 2022, has been postponed to 10-13 May 2022. It will be hosted at the India Expo Centre, Greater Noida. The postponement was forced because of the rising Covid-19 cases, and “to prioritise the health and safety of all our stakeholders, namely our exhibitors, trade visitors, eminent industry leaders, alongside our association partners”, Hyve India, the organiser of the event decided to reschedule Paperex 2022 to a more opportune time following the recent increase in Covid infections and travel restrictions imposed by various state governments across India.

Earlier, Piyush Jain, president, Paper Merchants Association, Delhi, had written to Hyve India requesting the postponement given the current situation.

Established in 1958, the Paper Merchants Association, Delhi, represents nearly 1,600 members, comprising businessmen dealing in paper, paper board and allied products.

Jain wrote, “With the resurgence of the Covid virus, the situation has become unsafe for everyone to venture out. The government has rightly put in place various restrictions and has advised strongly to not gather in large numbers or participate in any kind of social/ cultural/ business gatherings. The number of cases of people testing positive has grown multiple times in a matter of a few days and as per the estimate of experts, this number shall continue to further increase in the coming days. Understandably because of all this, as per feedback available with us, visitors do not want to attend the Paperex. Without the presence of visitors, the trade show becomes meaningless and further health safety should be the priority in any instance.”

The rescheduling decision also has support from the industry including support from IARPMA, IRPTA and other prominent associations alongside industry leaders JK Paper, Trident Group, Parason Machinery and other key institutions, it is the collective industry view that May 2022 would be an ideal time for industry stakeholders to meet and do business in a safe environment.

IARPMA said, “The proposed rescheduling of the show will help the industry come together again at Paperex in a safe business conducive environment. We will extend our full support to the rescheduled Paperex 2022 edition.”

JK Paper, said, it is with Paperex since its inception. “Hyve has stood with the industry and we will extend our full support to Hyve towards the rescheduled Paperex 2022.”
“The rescheduling will help the industry come together again at Paperex in a safe business conducive environment. We will extend our full support to the rescheduled edition,” said the Trident Group statement.
