AIPIA
The date for AIPIA Virtual Congress is September 10, 2020

Following extensive consultation with the industry the Active & Intelligent Packaging Industry Association (AIPIA) has decided that the 2020 World Congress will be run as a virtual event, returning as a physical Congress in 2021. The date for AIPIA VC is September 10, 2020.

“We spoke to the industry’s leading players across every product and service and it was absolutely clear this was the right decision at this time. The world may soon be recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic, but the effects on business activity will go on for some time. So, we decided the Congress is just too important to be spoilt by these disruptions,” AIPIA’s managing director Eef de Ferrante said.

The Congress will include live broadcast presentations, online booths, live Q&A with speakers, one-to-one chats with technology providers and a real online challenge.

“Our Advisory Board, which l am privileged to lead, were absolutely clear that the AIPIA Congress is just too important, and must happen in a way which allows it to continue helping to shape the future direction of the industry we all belong to. AIPIA is integral to the future success of the Smart Packaging sector and l urge you to give it your full and absolute support in 2020. The Virtual Congress must come first in your agenda,” stated Dick de Koning, chairman of AIPIA.

“This is a challenging time, but also an exciting one,” de Ferrante continued. “Many events have been cancelled or postponed and others are going to take the virtual route, so it will get crowded. But, l assure you, AIPIA Virtual Congress will be the best on offer for smart packaging practitioners and users. And it has the potential to reach a bigger ‘on line’ audience than ever, to add even more value for speakers, exhibitors and delegates. So, making the choice on where to spend your budget is simple, we hope!” he concluded.

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!
