Paperworld India, Corporate Gifts and Interior Lifestyle India is ready to take place 12 – 14 May 2022 at the Jio World Convention Centre

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.


Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are growing similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
