IPAMA is an association of both printing and packaging machine manufacturers, which is also responsible for supporting the industry by providing a unique platform so that the maximum number of companies can participate and promote themselves at an affordable rate.

Initially, the space charges will be kept between Rs 9,000 to Rs 10,000/sqm. For subsequent editions, these will be reviewed and kept at the minimum level so that more and more MSME units can participate in the exhibition. 

While announcing the dates and the venue of IntraPac India, Rakesh Sodhi, president, IPAMA, said, “The Packaging sector in India is the fifth largest in its economy and one of the highest growing sectors in the country. We are making endeavours to promote this sector on different platforms so that the industry can get further momentum. We are also making efforts to increase the exports of packaging machinery and related products to different destinations in the global market. We are happy to say that the industry has successfully come out of the grip of Covid-19. With the legacy of PrintPack India, IPAMA will be able to serve the packaging industry in a better way.

IPAMA, since its inception in 1988, has been promoting the printing and packaging industry on different platforms, including organising PrintPack India biennially. IPAMA has also been providing necessary inputs relating to the industry to various government organisations, including the Ministry of Heavy Industry, Bureau of Indian Standards, CII, FICCI, PHD, EEPC, etc. IPAMA also works in tandem with other associations/federations for redressing the grievances of the industry and its member companies.
