Label conference heats up

Conference and Expo on Labels


The India Label Show 2008 conference (running alongside the expo) is an extensive 3-day program, covering all the hot topics in the industry, from market trends to latest technologies. This year, prestigious label buyers such as Ranbaxy, Unilever, Colgate and Moser Baer are invited to give you great feedback on what they expect from label converters. It is a unique opportunity to ask questions to some of the senior decision makers from the top brand owner companies across India.
The conference also welcomes top industry experts, such as: Mike Fairley, the label industry analyst who will give an opening speech on the Indian market. This management session will give you an understanding of the market evolution and how to position your business in a changing economic climate.

Nagesh Sagar, Managing Director of Maxicare – a leading design company, will participate on a panel discussing future technologies. This will give you the key to understand tomorrow’s requirements through the evolution of labeling and flexo packaging.

Peter Holywell, Sales Director of Supa Stik Labels – a label printer from Australia specializing in digital printing, will present a case study on how to move from conventional to digital printing and how it can be a rewarding investment. For only Rs500 (including VAT) per session, you can join an exclusive group with access to valuable information, not available anywhere else. But hurry! Seating in the conference theater (located in Hall 11) is limited and all seats will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Book your place today!

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.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
