Plastindia 2015 to come up with an Innovation Pavilion

Plastindia Fairs at Gandhinagar

The biggest section of the Innovation Pavilion will consist of presentation of innovations as practiced by plastics industries and academic institutions

Innovation Pavilion is a theme being used for the first time in Plastindia Fairs and is going to be an exciting place to visit for those interested in modern development using plastics. The event will be vital to those in the fields of R&D, science, inventions and innovations and especially to scientists, technologists, engineers, faculty members and students.

The biggest section of the Innovation Pavilion will consist of presentation of innovations as practised by plastics industries and academic institutions. Industries will have the possibility of showcasing their novel ideas in terms of products, processes, designs and more. They will thereby not only get to exhibit their ideas but by getting responses from visitors, they will also be able to carry out a market survey of these innovations. The institutions will have enough scope to present their ideas and convert their inventions into innovations.

An important section of this pavilion is where graduate students research work will be presented as posters. These posters can be on materials, processing, applications and sustainabilities as they relate to plastics and polymers. The pavilion plans to have graduate and post-graduate level R&D presentations. It is anticipated that visitors from other institutes as well as industries will find not only the ideas generated by this young team useful but they will also get an opportunity to conduct some impromptu interviews to select the future leaders of R&D.

The Plasticon Awards will be given at the pavilion for 25 categories. Moreover, visitors will have a more leisurely look at their award winning work and may even get a chance to interact with winners. The Innovation Pavilion is already getting some inquiries for sponsorships and participation. The committee consists of Prakash Trivedi, Jayesh Rambhia, Anup Ghosh, Mohan Shenoy, to name a few.

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.
