Print-Packaging.Com Pvt. Ltd. (PPCPL), with its flagship event PackPlus, has been covering package printing under its well established niche shows since last several years. And now the company takes a leap forward to enter into the arena of commercial printing & signage industry with Print Fair 2014. The first edition of the four day event will be held concurrently with PackPlus South 2014, scheduled from 2-5 July at HITEX International Exhibition Centre- Hyderabad.
The Indian Printing Industry worth INR 50,000 crore, compromising more than 2,50,000 big, small and medium printers, is growing at a rate of 12% annually. In recent years the industry has seen record level of growth owing to liberalized regimes, globalisation and progress in automation. It is slowly progressing from the heavy machinery using industry to a more software-centric business. The Indian printers today are equipped with the latest computer controlled printing machines and flow lines for binding, while state-of-the-art digital technologies are used in pre-press. UV digital printing and inkjet technology are also on rise in India.
The advent of global brands, rising consumerism and opening of the sector to foreign investors are bound to offer growth opportunities to the industry. Print Fair 2014 will provide an ideal platform to the commercial printing, converting and signage industry to identify and meet the increasing demands of the segment.
The exhibitors at Print Fair 2014 will include the manufacturers and providers of scanners, digital cameras, computers & servers, data storage devices, colour measurement, calibration & management systems, computer-to-press/plate/screen, soft & virtual proofing systems, sheetfed & web offset, screen & digital presses, narrow web inkjet digital colour & monochrome, web guides, inspection & defect detection systems, ink mixing, feeding systems, die cutting, embossing, foil stamping, varnishing, lacquering machines, counting, folding, stitching, creasing & perforating, slitting & cutting machines, coating & laminating machines, folding, gluing, pasting machines & accessories, corrugation machinery, prepress chemicals & plates, paper & board, inks, varnishes, adhesives and glues.
The visitors to the Show will be the package, label, commercial printers; converters; corrugated box manufacturers; printing & print buyers; publishers & owners of commercial newspapers; production/quality control managers; design houses, art directors & production managers; graphic designers; packaging development managers; print shop mangers and printing technologists.
“PackPlus South, focusing on the growth opportunities in South India, is already a well established event. In the year 2014, the Hyderabad ground will also host the first edition of Print Fair. Retaining the legacy of our other successful shows, we expect Print Fair 2014 to receive a good response from the industry,” said Neetu Arora, Director, PPCPL.
