Vision CI press in a real production environment

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.

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.

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!
