AIPIA India 19 March 2021 – Call for sponsors and speakers for a virtual one day virtual conference and networking event.

AIPIA is pleased to announce this event, the first in its Global Smart Packaging Program for 2021, a series of virtual events covering markets and key issues that will run throughout 2021. We seek sponsors/speakers for all our events. But we kick off in India early next year, so need your expressions of interest to build and promote the event. Costs and details of the networking feature and presentation schedule are available on request. You can benefit from discounts by booking more events in the program, as we go through the year. Full details will be available VERY shortly.

This first event will tap into the enormous potential offered by India and South Asia for Smart Packaging. India, in particular, is investing a huge amount in new supply chain infrastructures, particularly cool chain, to help medical distribution (in a country that is a pandemic hotspot) and even more in a strategic attempt to reduce the staggering food waste caused by poor distribution and storage.

Monitoring, track & trace, gray market, and counterfeiting issues are high on the agenda. And with India and South Asia increasingly looking at increased exports of food and pharma products the issues of authentication and provenance, through Blockchain and other means and extending shelf-life, are now major focuses of attention.

AIPIA is working with IPP Star, to organize the Smart Packaging Solutions for India and South Asia. IPP Star has long experience running successful events of this kind in its local markets. They will enable us to tap into Indian and South Asia Brands and other end-users, packaging manufacturers, and research & development teams who are setting the pace for the next generation of CPGs and supply chain solutions.

So please join us at this first event in the Global Smart Packaging Program. AIPIA is investing in the future of Smart Packaging, so your support is essential! Please get back to us as soon as possible if you would like to sponsor and speak at this event. You can contact me at Andrew@aipaia.info.

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 grown 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!
