In a relief for companies willing to participate in the PrintPack India exhibition ­– one of India’s largest expos for the print and packaging industry – the Indian Printing Packaging and Allied Machinery Manufacturers’ Association (IPAMA) has announced reduction in space charges for the show.

The reduction in charges was announced to encourage companies reeling from the Covid shock to participate in the PrintPack India show, which is slated for 11-15 March 2022. The move comes after IPAMA ended its early bird discount on 15 December 2021. IPAMA said that 55 companies availed its early bird discounts

IPAMA claimed that over 80% of the exhibition area has been already booked whereas 6,000 sqm is in the pipeline. It said major players have “already confirmed their bookings and deposited requisite amount”. The association had earlier announced the revised dates of its 15th PrintPack India exhibition in October 2021

“In a limited period, tremendous response was received from the industry. With a view to extending financial relief to the industry during the Covid-19 period, IPAMA had brought down the space charges to the lowest level so that more and more companies, particularly from the MSME sector, could participate in the exhibition and give a momentum to their business,” IPAMA stated in a press note shared with PrintWeek.

IPAMA also told PrintWeek that the show will see participation from big brands such as Acme Machinery, Associated Industrial Corporation, Bobst India, Canon India, Colorjet,  DGM, Electro Mec, Fair Deal, Fujifilm, Imaging Systems, Impel Services, Komori  India, Konica Minolta, Line O Matic, Megabound, Manroland (Goss Web), Memory  Repro, Monu Graphics, Monotech Systems Ltd., Multitech, NBG, Prakesh Offset,  Pratham Technologies, Sahil Graphics, Sodhisons, Technova, The Printers House, Toyo Inks and UV Graphics, VIG Graphics and more.
