The fourth biennial conference of the Label Manufacturers Association of India (LMAI), titled ‘Innovation Simplified,’ will be held at Jaypee Palace Hotel and Convention Centre in Agra from 20 to 23 July 2017. LMAI held a meeting in Delhi to plan for the mega event, wherein the association appointed Kuldip Goel, managing director of Noida-based Any Graphics, as the conference chairman. During the meeting, the members of the association brainstormed to make the event, which will offer the delegates knowledge sharing and networking opportunities, a big success. In addition, it was decided to form sub committees comprising members from across the country to get maximum participation in organizing and reaching out to the industry.

An LMAI networking meeting took place in Delhi on 6 February 2017. LMAI, along with conference chairman Kuldip Goel, managing director of Anygraphics, formed sub committees comprising members from all regions to delegate tasks with the aim to organize a more successful and comfortable event than its previous editions. Each committee has been made responsible for various operations such as sponsors, logistics, hospitality, finance, registration, entertainment, amongst others. LMAI has also launched a new logo for the conference.

The LMAI networking meeting organized in Delhi was attended by about 100 printers and suppliers from Delhi and other regions of the country. LMAI will organize further networking meetings in Ahmedabad and Bengaluru before the conference in July. The first two editions of the LMAI conference were earlier held in Goa while the third one took place in Jaipur. Participation in this event will be restricted to members in good standing and registration will be made on first come first served basis.

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.
