Deepak Chawla, general manager, marketing, Technova, explained, “The real success story of Pamex was not in the increased numbers alone, but also in the quality and the geographical range of visitors that it attracted.”

The visitor enthusiasm ahead of the major industry event, Drupa, held great portends for the international industry players that are looking to India to provide an even greater footfall to the international event than the 19,000 printers that it sent in the last edition.

Meanwhile, print leaders converged at WPCF conference to brief printers on the latest industry trends and changing customer expectations. The industry felicitated Narendra Paruchuri of Pragati, as the winner of VCLA award, and celebrated the excellence of its printers at the NAEP Awards.
