PDIT2 Conference Update – 13 December, Pragati Maidan

Opportunity to meet leading brand owners & suppliers


The second Packaging Design, Innovation, and Technology Conference (PDIT2) at Pragati Maidan in Delhi is a compact event taking all of one day – 13 December 2019. PDIT2 promises to be a knowledge event with stimulating conversations and take-home value. Our articulate audience representing industry leaders is as influential as the speakers and panelists at the front. We try to keep time for discussion in every session, although it is becoming difficult with a jam-packed list of expert brand owners and technology and converter experts in our program. Send me an eMail or call me if you want to talk.

Registrations have come in from brands such as Philip Morris and Britannia and leading packaging suppliers. Brands, designers and converters such as Allana, Cargill, Creative Labels, Encept, Mrida, and SB Packagings have already submitted case studies on innovation in competition for the Jury Presentation on the conference day. We are expecting more entries for the innovation case studies, of which six will be invited to make a short presentation at the event – notes on the journey of the pack from original concept to shelf display and the experience in between.

PDIT2 is not a generic conference where speakers merely give sales pitches. In our intelligent sustainability discussion, speakers and panelists will share solutions. Confirmed speakers and panelists include Andrew Manly of the Active and Intelligent Packaging Association, Achintya Lahiri of Coca-Cola, Ashok Chandak of NXP, Anuj Sahni of SB Packagings, Barun Banerjee of Nestle, Sukhdev Singh Saini of Colgate, Harshal Parakh of Parakh Agro, Jeevraj Pillai/Shubi Sachan of Uflex, Kriti Soni of Dabur, Prabhod Halde of Marico, Prasanna Sukhi of Kezzler India, Roland Lartigue of Toppan Europe, Rakesh Kumar of Recykal, Ramesh R of Pepsi, Shyam Sundar BK of Tata Elxsi, and Saurabh Singh of Desmania.

As you join us today from India and elsewhere, we have a favour to ask. Through these times of ambiguity and challenge, the packaging industry in India and in most parts of the world has been fortunate. We are now read in more than 90 countries as our coverage widens and increases in impact. Our traffic as per analytics more than doubled in 2020 and many readers chose to support us financially even when advertising fell to pieces.

As we come out of the pandemic in the next few months, we hope to again expand our geography and evolve our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information, with some of the best correspondents in the industry. If there were ever a time to support us, it is now. You can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help to sustain us by subscribing.
