Earlier this month, registration opened for Pack Expo Las Vegas and Healthcare Packaging Expo 2021, which will be held from 27 to 29 at Las Vegas Convention Center. This will be the only comprehensive packaging and processing event in the world this year. 

“We continuously monitor the industry, and exhibitors and attendees alike are eager to return to conducting business and experiencing new machinery, materials, technologies, and solutions in-person,” says Jim Pittas, president and CEO of show producer, PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies. “There is no substitute for seeing technology up close, manipulating materials and containers, experiencing controls systems, speaking to multiple vendors, and getting answers on the spot,” he added.

Pack Expo Las Vegas offers opportunities for ideas from 40-plus vertical markets to cross-pollinate across four large convention center halls. Healthcare Packaging Expo provides a range of equipment and technology solutions for life sciences, showcasing targeted solutions for pharmaceutical, medical devices, nutraceuticals, and biologics.

“Our industry’s essential role over the past year shed light on new technological needs, and these improvements and advancements in equipment and technology will continue to evolve,” says Laura Thompson, vice president, trade shows, PMMI. “Walking the aisles, connecting with colleagues, and meeting new people will allow attendees the opportunity to discover solutions they didn’t even know they needed.”

As per US media reports, Las Vegas will be going in for a full reopening from 1 June. Large gatherings are also back and restriction-free.

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.

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.
