Due to the ongoing pandemic and national and international lockdown measures and associated travel restrictions, the Print and Digital Convention congress and trade fair initially planned for June will be moved to 20-21 October 2021. The event is being organized by Fachverband Medienproduktion (f:mp.) and Messe Düsseldorf

“We have a responsibility to the health of our visitors and exhibitors. Against the background of the current Corona pandemic and continuing restrictions, it is unfortunately not guaranteed that we will hold the Print & Digital Convention at the Düsseldorf exhibition center in June. Our exhibitors’ confidence in our decision is documented by the fact that 95% of the exhibitors who have already booked will also be present in October,” says Rüdiger Maaß, managing director of f:mp. “We see the congress as a platform for interaction focusing on selected highlight projects and knowledge transfer while placing a strong emphasis on interactive experiences. We, therefore, consider it important to hold it as a face-to-face event as soon as the framework conditions permit.”

Geldermann speaks about the upcoming print and digital convention

Sabine Geldermann, director of print technologies at Messe Düsseldorf, adds: “Even if virtual formats are the measure of all things in these times, our customers recognize, based on the experience of the last twelve months, that face-to-face events are indispensable, especially when it comes to the haptic experience of technologies and their applications. That is why we are confidently looking ahead to October 2021.”

The Print & Digital Convention focuses on presenting innovative technologies in projects that showcase individual machines or tools and demonstrate overall solutions-oriented practical requirements. In addition to exciting exhibits and intensive expert advice at the exhibitor stands, visitors to the event can expect an extensive and top-class program of lectures on all relevant aspects of corporate communication and print and digital technologies.

In this way, as an established annual event in the industry, the congress and trade fair – together with virtual offerings such as virtual.drupa and drupa’s global Print Technologies trade fair portfolio – bridges the time window until the next drupa in 2024 and offers an important platform for knowledge transfer, exchange, and networking.

 

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.
