ASPA and Messe Frankfurt is hosting a virtual webinar on counterfeiting

Today, ASPA and Messe Frankfurt together are going to host a virtual webinar on the topic ‘Best practices in brand protection and IP enforcement: A cross-industry perspective.’ The webinar will feature a panel discussion in which experts will be sharing their ideas and experiences in brand protection best practices applicable across industries and product groups.

A brief idea about the ASPA and Messe Frankfurt webinar

The panelists will discuss a multi-pronged corporate brand protection strategy and robust IP enforcement, which are key to preventing the menace of counterfeiting. Online brand enforcement becomes an additional responsibility in this age of e-commerce boom to protect trademarks in the ever-expanding electronic environment. 

The way forward is with smart authentication solutions that provide your valuable brand a dual secure shield at the physical/packaging level and a digital level, enabling track-and-trace monitoring capability and ensuring integrity across the entire supply chain. Consumer education, awareness, and engagement programs have an essentially important role to play and are part of any responsible brand’s 360-degree approach towards the security of the brand itself and its all-important customers.

Topics of discussion in today’s webinar

  • Best strategies in counterfeit prevention
  • Global best practices in IPR enforcement
  • Online brand enforcement and counterfeit prevention in the expanding e-commerce / online retail space
  • Role of supply chain integrity in counterfeit prevention
  • Importance of investing optimally in brand protection as a case for business-loss-prevention, rather than look at brand protection/authentication solutions and strategies as a cost center

ASPA and Messe Frankfurt webinar will start at 1500 hrs IST and end at 1630 hrs IST. If you haven’t registered yet for this webinar, click here and get ready to join the discussion. 


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!
