IPAMA pauses new bookings due to high demand and space constraint

The Indian Printing Packaging & Allied Machinery Manufacturers' Association (IPAMA), established in 1988, has consistently set new benchmarks with its biennial PrintPack India exhibition.

This event has become a prime destination for numerous international companies. The 16th PrintPack India is scheduled to take place at the India Expo Centre in Greater Noida from 1 to 5 February 2025. This exhibition will encompass almost all segments of the printing and packaging industry.

As of date, 456 companies have paid token amounts to reserve their space. Of these, 189 companies alone have secured 20,035-sqm of space for displaying their machinery and related products, representing approximately 80% of the bookable area available at IEML. 

At the last Printpack India, the total exhibition space booked by the exhibitors was 25,342-sqm. Since the total area allocated to IPAMA by IEML is already booked or reserved, IPAMA is now preparing to expand the exhibition space either with hangars or additional upstairs halls to accommodate more participants. 

Presently, IPAMA has paused receiving new bookings. However, the Association will accept applications from companies, and the area will be allotted based on space availability.

This demonstrates the Indian graphic arts industry's confidence in IPAMA and its marketing team in organising international exhibitions and related events. Space allocation is based on priority numbers.

IPAMA is also discussing with various overseas associations and companies to attract foreign buyers to PrintPack India.

Jaiveer Singh, president of IPAMA, stated that IPAMA expects more than 600 exhibitors and 125,000 business visitors for the 16th edition of PrintPack. 

“We are leaving no stone unturned to make this exhibition a success. We are extending invitations to various international organisations and associations to sponsor business delegates. IPAMA will also organise seminars and conferences during the exhibition period, either independently or in collaboration with other organisations and institutions," he added.
