The Active and Intelligent Packaging Industry Association that recently held its first Smart Packaging Solutions Virtual Congress for India and South Asia on 19 March 2021, has announced some changes to the rest of its Global Smart Packaging Program events for 2021.

The AIPIA states, “Herewith we inform you that we have made some changes to our previously announced 2021 Global Smart Packaging Program in order to deliver a stronger series and offer both delegates and speakers the high-quality events which can be expected from us.”

  • The China Congress, a hybrid virtual and live event in Shanghai, will now be two weeks later than originally planned. It is now taking place on 23rd June 2021 and will coincide and co-locate with the ProPak China and FoodPack China exhibitions.
  • The Supply Chain online Congress scheduled for May has been moved later in the year, to September 16.
  • The Sustainability & Recycling event will now be co-located with the Digitalization and Connected Packaging Virtual Congress and the date for this event will move slightly earlier, to 2nd November. This will enable these interconnected topics to be covered more efficiently and effectively.

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.
