“Today’s turbulent and volatile market dynamics put label converters under tremendous pressure, with an ever-growing need for accuracy, consistency, and efficiency,” he said. “The adoption of integrated hardware and software to automate and connect workflows, systems, and processes delivers the clearest tangible benefit in meeting this challenge.”

From the company’s booth (A35, Hall 4), the Esko team will be showcasing its latest innovations, including new VDP enhancements in Automation Engine that makes the integration of Variable Data Printing requirements as easy as a few mouse clicks and the latest developments in on-press color and quality management with its AVT print inspection system. This technology will be further showcased at the Labelexpo event space Automation Arena when the company will demonstrate a complete integrated, automated workflow to visitors.

“Excellence in business performance, the value promise of digital transformation leads to success by improving operational processes, lowering costs and delivering client loyalty,” said Jan. “By developing technologies that seek to speed up and connect processes and devices efficiently, while eliminating errors and waste, Esko enables label converters to meet the challenges of both today and tomorrow, while also reducing waste as much as possible throughout the entire ideation-to-shelf workflow.

Esko is looking forward to welcoming visitors to booth A35 in Hall 4 at Labelexpo Europe 2022. Adjacent to the Esko booth, X-Rite Pantone will demonstrate a connected ecosystem for color management integrated with the Esko workflow.


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 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.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
