On 17th January 2022, IPAMA had convened the 121st Meeting of its Governing Council virtually, which was attended by majority of its members. The most important point, to organize the 15th PRINTPACK INDIA, was discussed and deliberated. Keeping in view the prevailing conditions and recommendations of the exhibitors, associate partners and in consultation with the officials of India Expo Centre, the Governing Council had decided to postpone the Exhibition for 2 months and organise it at India Expo Centre from May 26-30, 2022 which appears a safe period for the exhibitors and all other concerned parties, including the business visitors who are the backbone of any exhibition.

PRINTPACK INDIA Exhibition was earlier scheduled to be organised at India Expo Centre from March 11-15, 2022. IPAMA had also finalised various arrangements well in time for the largest show in the country on printing and packaging industry. However, due to sudden increase in COVID-19 and Omicron cases in different states, the Office Bearers and IPAMA Secretariat officials had discussed to the senior representatives of the Exhibitors and the Associate Partners to ascertain their views relating to the organisation of the Exhibition on the scheduled dates.

The dates for availing of the discounts and the eligibility criteria were also revised, as under:

• For existing exhibitors, to avail early bird discounts, 30% payment as second instalment, must be transferred in IPAMA’s bank account by March 21, 2022. And balance 50% payment on or before May 10, 2022.

• For a new exhibitor, remittance of 50% payment in IPAMA’s account is must to avail Motivational and Covid discounts by Feb 21, 2022. And balance 50% payment on or before May 10, 2022. No new exhibitor is eligible to avail aforesaid discounts after Feb 21, 2022. The discount is subject to IPAMA Membership.

Top players of the industry had assured to remain present in 15th PRINTPACK INDIA. The forthcoming exhibition will be a unique, highly innovative and a trendsetter as this will happen after the Covid era. It will offer an excellent opportunity for interaction with the members of the printing & packaging fraternity for entering into joint ventures, collaborations and sourcing of jobs.
