Anil Arora, President of PrintPackaging.Com, the organiser of Pamex, shares more about the PAMEX 2024. He said, “Every PAMEX show for the last several editions have been bigger than the previous one in terms of number of exhibitors and the net area occupied and 2024 will not be an exception. Over 300 exhibitors covering more than 10,000 sqm are already on board and markedly several exhibitors have booked larger booths than in the previous edition.”
He further added, “Every PAMEX edition has had a larger footfall than the previous edition. The increased visitors come from both India and abroad. This reflects the growing reach of the exhibition ensured through a perpetually ongoing marketing campaign. The crux of the marketing for us, as in the past, is a robust database of prospective visitors that are continually informed about the happenings at the event. The intervening period between exhibitions is when we update this database and add to it with inputs from our executives who travel around the country and collect information while visiting industrial areas and towns. Visiting and exhibiting in shows with similar profiles in the country and abroad; engagement on social media; roadshows; advertising and news stories in trade magazines, printing and distributing pre-event newsletters; advertising on local buses and radio etc. – the well-oiled campaign rolls on ensuring the reach of the event gets wider with every edition.”
As PAMEX 2024 concludes, the echoes of innovation and collaboration will reverberate in the industry. This exhibition is not just a snapshot of the present but a foundation for the future of printing. The ground breaking technologies and the spirit of convergence witnessed at PAMEX 2024 will undoubtedly leave a lasting impact on the world of printing. As a natural progression in the continuing story of convergence, PAMEX has extended its focus on Textile Printing and Soft Signage in this edition.
