The Active and Intelligent Packaging Summit Americas, co-produced by the Active and Intelligent Packaging Association (AIPIA) and BXP (Brand Experience magazine), will be held on 3 and 4 June, 2019 at the Westin Jersey City Newport, New Jersey.

The Active and Intelligent Packaging Summit Americas brings together consumer-facing and retail brands and developers of packaging solutions to explore how the latest technologies can reinvent the entire value chain. It will feature two days of presentations offering a complete overview of these disruptive technologies and how brand owners and marketers are commercializing them for the strongest ROI. In addition, the event will have exhibits from best-in-class suppliers and provide ample networking opportunities.

“We’re very pleased to be returning to the U.S. after such a successful first year. The Summit is the only North American event covering the active and intelligent packaging sector in its entirety to offer a complete overview of where the market is today and, more importantly, where it is headed,” said Eef de Ferrante, executive director of AIPIA, based in Utrecht, The Netherlands.

The 2019 program will feature the Packaging Innovation Challenge by Mondelez, which will be challenging active and intelligent packaging companies to come up with solutions for some of the most famous snack brands in the world. Companies will have just a few minutes to pitch their ideas to the snacks giant, and convince them why their particular packaging solution will add value to a single brand or group of brands within the Mondelez portfolio.

Experts such as Digimarc, E-ink, PragmatIC, Talkin Things, Thin Film, Pack-Smart, EVRYTHNG, Wiliot and Zappar will discuss real applications as well as the latest active and intelligent packaging developments, research and trends. While Deloitte, VTT and Cambridge Design Partnership will offer insights about the way ahead.

Topics that will be covered include the tangible benefits of smart labels; bringing connecivity to everyday items; value creation using smart, reusable packaging; packages that talk; and smart packaging for hot consumer experiences.

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 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.
