The West Bengal Master Printers’ Association (WBMPA) organized the most notable trade show for the printer/converters from the East of India, 4th Eastern Print Pack 2016 will be held at Milan Mela Ground, Kolkata, from 1st to 4th September.
According to WBMPA, the main objective of 4th Eastern Print Pack 2016 is to meet the need in the local market for latest printing and packaging machinery, including pre- and post-press machines. The show also hopes to provide common platform to create awareness among all sectors of the industry, big to small, on the latest technologies, trends, equipment, consumables, etc and enable these industries to modernise their operations, optimise production and increase profitability.
For the East and Northeast of India, Kolkata remains the main business, commercial and financial hub. This makes the show quite significant for the converters from the regions and for manufacturers and service providers who wants to make inroads into this region. The printing and packaging market in the region has seen a tremendous growth in the last 10 years. This growth covers the total spectrum, such as commercial and promotional printing, packaging, printed advertising, newspapers, periodicals, stationery and others. The projected growth automatically means future investments in capital goods. Printers in Eastern India, including the neighbouring countries like Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan and many South-East Asian countries, are looking forward to visualise and adopt the newer technologies and upgrade their production flow to achieve the global standard.
