The Offset Printers' Association (OPA) will organize a buyer-seller meet under the name 'InterPrint Expo-2014' from October 10-13 in Ludhiana.
The exhibition is supported by the micro small and medium enterprises (MSME) ministry.
At least 60% charges of the stalls that will be installed at the exhibition will be reimbursed by the ministry of MSME to the registered entrepreneurs.
OPA president Parveen Aggarwal said, “The exhibition is being organised taking in consideration the constant demand of printers in more than 34 cities of the region. The main aim behind the exhibition is to provide knowledge about the technical innovations and advancements in this field and to pursue the printers of the region to equip with the latest so as to cope up with the international quality and production.”
“It is a well-known fact that with 33% share, the north region is leading in printing. In northern states, major growth in printing is going on in Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir and Rajasthan, due to the friendly policies of the state and central government. These areas are becoming new growth engines for the industry in the north,” Aggarwal said.
Considering the region's potential, OPA selected Ludhiana as the venue for this meet.
OPA general secretary Kamal Chopra said big names from printing and converting industries would showcase their latest machinery, material and system.
“The office bearers of the OPA have made elaborate arrangements for the smooth visit of the business visitors as well as exhibitors,” Chopra said.
