Sona Papers participated in the event and promoted their major partners at the event.

Sanjay Suneja from Sona Paper Pvt Ltd., said, “We are growing reasonably good in the Middle East. Our growth is quite visible in all the perspectives. We are adding more mills and more varieties from the existing mills as well. We have added few grades from Hansol and Cordenons. We are much optimistic and we are going to keep on adding mills and products, as our goal is to be the best print partner. We intent to introduce more innovative products to the industry. Initially, we analyze the product well and import them and only then we sell the product. We would like to contribute something to the market through our innovative and new products which is best for the industry.”
Speaking about the event, Vikrant Chhabra, director, Sona Commercial LLC, said, “We had a stable growth in the Middle East. The last quarter of 2018 was very good and it continued. The year 2019 seems to be promising and we are back to our 2014 to 2015 levels. We have covered around 33% in the first couple of months in 2019, which is a good sign for us. The Expo 2020 will be bringing some good growth to the industry. We will have some good products in the market. We are planning to do online sales and if things work well then we will be implementing soon through Neenah and Cordenons. We will speak to local ecommerce giants out here so that we shall do good online sales. We won’t be able to do it in large volumes but we will be able to reach everywhere. This event is purely a business event and everyone comes here to buy. Thankfully customers from the export markets visited the show. We saw visitors from printing and corporates directly. Agencies have come down but earlier we use to see designers and production managers but it seems to be missing. Our Oman distributor PAEast Arabian Computer Stationary LLC and Bahrain distributor Amwaj Integrated W.L.L. were at the show. We announced our new partner in Saudi Arabia as well. Overall, we were very happy with the event.”
