Speaking exclusively to PrintWeek India, Ashok Neelkanth, owner, Intel Trade Fairs & Expositions, said, “This is the first major show after Drupa. All major digital players are in attendance. The Southern region of the country is an important market for all the digital players. During our research, we spoke to more than 100 print CEOs. The feedback is that these printers will continue with offset but surely invest in digital.”


According to the organisers, the visitor registration was about to cross the 12,00 mark at 10.30am, after the show opened.

“Moving around the halls, one observes that digital and print finishing is the trend. The digital players are exhibiting the technologies that they launched at Drupa,” added Neelkanth.

Other exhibitors include Shanghai UPG, Duratech Automation, Omkar Engineering, Megabound India, Insight, Pitney Bowes etc, while Manroland, ePrint Machinery, Zhongke India are exhibiting for the first at PrintExpo.
