The much-awaited trade fair trio of Paperworld India, Corporate Gifts, and Interior Lifestyle India presented by Ambiente India will take place from 12 – 14 May 2022 at the Jio World Convention Centre (JWCC), as confirmed by the organizers. As the first physical exhibition for the industry after a hiatus of two years of business disruptions, the platform will show the industry’s determination, resilience, and opportunities in the ‘new normal.’

Messe Frankfurt India Trade Fairs India, together with gifts and accessories, the Exhibition Division of Netlink Solutions (India) announced new dates for their leading consumer goods exhibitions, met with overwhelming support from the industry. 

Reopening of schools will be a key theme for the launch of Paperworld India

The new dates allow industry stakeholders additional time to plan while offering safety, confidence, and flexibility to both exhibitors and fair attendees. Moreover, it also secures maximum participation while keeping in mind the period before the reopening of schools which is a key theme for the launch of Paperworld India. 

On the other hand, the corporate gifting segment is witnessing a renewed demand for health, safety, or work-from-home related gifting products with the timing aligning with pre-festive sourcing for distributors and wholesalers. Interior Lifestyle India, presented by Ambiente India’s homeware and lifestyle products, will thus create perfect synergies with the two fairs. 

With less than two months from the scheduled event, the new Omicron variant has posed a challenging business environment both in terms of safety and business prospects, both of which might compromise the standard of the event. “As organizers, we strongly believe the change in dates will create more favorable trade prospects for exhibitors, ensure additional time to plan with certainty, and enhance business confidence among the fair attendees,” explained Raj Manek, managing director Messe Frankfurt Trade Fairs India. 

Minesh Modi, Wholetime Director, Netlink Solutions (India), said, “We are certain that this brief rescheduling will allow us to come back stronger and offer the industry a platform that meets their business objectives. All eyes are set on the 2022 edition, and we’re completely focused on ensuring a strong return with opportunities for business regeneration.” 

Continuing their aim to provide a safe and conducive environment for trade, Messe Frankfurt India will organize exhibitions under the ‘MFISafeConnect’ standards that are strictly aligned with the government’s health and safety guidelines.


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.
