ALPS & IPAMA join hands for first ever focussed “Label Zone” at Print Pack India

The Indian printing and packaging industry has gained momentum and the entire industry seems to be in acceleration mode. The industry has a huge potential to grow, as there is a big gap in export and import figures. The Print Pack team for its next edition of PrintPack India to be held at India Expo Centre, Greater Noida, from 1 to 6 February 2019 is all set to tap into the same. 

To add to this focus, the 14th edition of Print Pack India series has joined hands with the Association of Label Printers & Suppliers (ALPS) to organize a first-ever grand Label Zone within PrintPack India exhibition. The Label Zone will focus on exhibiting printers, converters and suppliers from the Label Industry. An MOU has been signed with IPAMA on this accord and for the first time, visitors at Print Pack India will be able to witness the entire label stakeholders at one place. This will espsecially help the existing offset, commercial and packaging printers who wish to diversify into label production to understand and compare between their existing process and label production.

Mr. Gururaj Ballarwad, President-ALPS said” The entire management of ALPS is working very hard to promote the label industry in India. We have already done seminars and get together parties for the Label Industry in 2017 which will continue throughout 2018. In addition, we wanted to align with a show which brings new opportunities for all key stakeholders of label fraternity. Looking at brand value & number of visitors at “Print Pack India”, our management has decided to join hands with IPAMA.”

Mr. Ajay Agarwal (VP) & Mr Arunesh Bansal (Secretary) added” We have initially reserved an area of 2000 sq. meters to create this Label Zone. The whole focus will be to give exhibition spaces to our existing and future members who are all key stakeholders of the Label Industry. We will bring value to our members and the Label Fraternity overall by not only providing them a focussed service area, but also create common shared services which will ensure their participation at Printpack is more productive and beneficial. Existing commercial & Packaging printers and members of IPAMA who wish to diversify in to Label production will also be able to visit our focussed Zone and understand the entire Label production process quicker.”

The biggest printing, packaging and allied industries related event in India, PrintPack India is a big event and often compared to the world-class printing expo Drupa. The main theme of this exhibition is aligning the entire printing & packaging industry in one place. Throughout the Print Pack India journey, IPAMA has focussed on promoting In-Press, Post press, finishing, converting, and digital, signage and packaging machines etc.
