The biennial Finat technical seminar will take place in Barcelona from 7-9 March 2018. The event will witness the participation of Andy Hobsbawm.

The founder and chief marketing officer of IoT smart products platform, EVERYTHING will give his insight into the technical side of the way smart products can transform brand relationships, business operations, and service experiences. He will also explore how labels and packaging are the digital bridge between the physical product and a cloud-powered universe of real-time data and software applications.

These are some of the topics that will be explained and discussed during the event this year. Other topics include the impact of end-to-end connectivity on optimising production chain, the pros of workflow automation, tackling digital automation issues and the importance of real-time data collection and communication.

Chris Ellison, president of Finat, will give a presentation on the simple and authenticated way to target processes, print needs and timescales. He states, “The seminar has been curated to help companies understand the technical challenges and improve their organisational efficiency, service and profitability by implementing new techniques, methodologies and by employing the workers’ skills and knowledge to the fullest.”

“The papers will show new features and requirements in printing, converting, and processing that keep the labelling industry moving forward and help to add value in the supply chain. There will also be an update on the latest status with regards to materials science, converting technology as well as application requirements, and the seminar is targeted at all levels of the technical community from research and development or production to technical directors and executives,” Ellison adds.

Day two will start with in-depth overviews of inks, varnishes, facestocks and finishing, plus recent advances in PSA label films. It will closely observe the value-added options for labels through the use of hot and cold foiling, embossing, and adding texture. Günther Dieroff, sales and marketing manager for Beneli will close the event by demystifying IoT technologies.

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 Asia.is 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.
