Exhibiting at Stand 35 in Yountville’s Lincoln Theater, Creative Edge Software will present its latest iC3D version 4.1, which features a range of capabilities developed specifically with the requirements of high-end packaging markets in mind. The software boasts the ability to visualize complex packaging designs with photo-realistic accuracy in a matter of minutes. These include devices such as specialty closures, security seals, matte and metallic inks, holographic and pigment foils, and even liquid-fill effects.

The most recent feature included in the iC3D all-in-one application is Bump Displacement. This has been developed with the purpose of allowing designers to create and visualize unique, 3D shapes and surfaces. Example applications include selective embossing and debossing of bottles, cartons and presentation cases for premium wines and spirits.

“A key theme among the scheduled sessions of this conference is about helping winemakers to leverage their brands and to develop new lines with real consumer appeal,” says Carmen Eide, director of sales, Latin America at Creative Edge Software. “That’s where we come in with iC3D. It allows winemakers and marketers to take a no holds barred approach to trying out new ideas, quickly, easily and inexpensively, while designers have the means of visualizing even their wildest concepts without having to call on any specialist equipment or services. We’re looking forward to the event and the opportunity of showing delegates just how quickly ideas can become reality.”

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!
