PrintExpo 2017 Sets New Benchmark for Print Exhibitions in India

An absolute treat for an organisers eyes, the exhibition hall was abuzz with hectic business activities all 3days of PrintExpo 2017. Trade visitors came in large numbers very early in the morning and many times during the 3 days there were long queues of trade visitors waiting to register and enter the exhibition hall. It's a dream of every exhibition organiser in the world. PrintExpo 2017 was an extremely busy show and I am exhilarated with the response the show generated.

The quality of attendees this year was remarkably very good and many exhibitors closed spot business at the show, while others gathered quality business leads and contacts.

I am committed in growing this show and we will try to make the 2018 Edition of PrintExpo bigger, better with more upmarket technologies on show.”
