A need has been felt by those involved in the industry that an event to focus India's capabilities should be organized in the years when the Paperex is not held so that the technical personnel working on the shop floor can get the opportunity to visit the fair and participate in the conference to equip them with the latest technological advancement taken place within the country and outside. Keeping this objective in mind, IARPMA decided to organize Paperplus – India Trade Fair and Conference on Paper and Allied industry jointly with ITEI ((International Trade and Exhibitions India Pvt. Ltd). Now the event has become one of the major event on pulp and paper industry focusing domestic paper industry in India.
IARPMA is also organizing various workshops and training programmes for the paper industry across India on environment, pollution, water conservation, energy efficiency, waste minimization, raw material, process technologies, bleaching efficiencies, co-generation, new and renewable energy, etc.
