The 7th edition of the Plastasia 2020 exhibition has been further postponed to 12 – 15 October 2020 at BIEC in Bengaluru. The exhibition was initially planned to be held from 19 June to 22 June 2020 in Bengaluru.

This unfortunate episode is due to a miscommunication from the venue and we apologize for this short notice. The new dates will be communicated shortly and we request you to circulate the information across your database through your digital and mailing platforms,” Tribune Exhibitors, the organizer of the expo, said.

Tribune Exhibitors is organizing the event in association with Plastics Machinery Manufacturers Association of India. The exhibition plans to showcase the latest technology and machineries used in manufacturing of plastics and petrochemicals with participation from different parts of the world. The venue of the exhibition will be Bangalore International Exhibition Center.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
