“After the cancellation of Labelexpo Europe 2022, we immediately agreed to still offer our existing and future customers the opportunity to experience live the full range of our globally well-established label printing solutions and all innovations during this time. That’s why we are organizing Durst Expo 2022 – Label together with many industry-leading companies at Durst’s headquarters in Brixen, Italy,” said Martin Leitner, Durst Product manager Label and Flexible Packaging.

Over three and a half days, the event will feature a varied program of Tau RSC live demonstrations, panel discussions, inspiring keynote speeches and presentations from participating companies and customers. The Italian coffee bar at the Durst lounge also provides a setting for an intense exchange of ideas in a relaxed atmosphere.

Since the best ideas and projects are often born out of the box, guided e-bike tours into the surrounding mountains and guided tours through the historic city center of Brixen with tastings of regional products round off the program.

“The event is open to all label converters from around the world. We look forward to meeting you in the beautiful city of Brixen,” adds Thomas Macina, Global Sales director Label and Flexible Packaging.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
