Bobst has postponed the ‘Bobst FlexPack Day – India’ webinar that was scheduled for 5 August.

“There are some new pathbreaking developments coming up which we would also like to share as part of the webinar looking at the overwhelming participation response,” Bobst said.

“We need a little more time to compile and present them. For this reason, we have postponed ‘Bobst FlexPack Day – India” webinar. Once we compile the latest developments and put them into a presentation format, we will come back with new dates for this webinar,” the company added.

As per the original schedule, Bobst Competence Center in Bielefeld was supposed to present the latest printing and prepress technologies that are shaping the future of flexible packaging – exclusively for India through a webinar on 5 August.

Guests were to experience the power of the Vision CI press in a real production environment being brought directly from the Bobst Competence Center in Bielefeld.

Bobst innovation, technologies and live session

During the webinar, Bill Duckham, who is the technology sales director, flexo at Bobst, was one of the speakers. Sara Alexander, who is the marketing & communication manager of flexible packaging, was also supposed to speak. Also on the speaker’s list was Nilesh Pinto, who is the business director of flexible packaging the Indian Subcontinent.

A special brand owner session was also scheduled during the webinar.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
