“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.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are growing similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
