AIPIA's 2021 events include two more Congresses to come
Following the successful conclusion of its first live event since 2019 – the China Summit in Shanghai – AIPIA returns to the virtual stage for its two remaining Congresses for 2021. Both are carefully focused, covering the highly important and topical issues of Supply Chain Solutions (16th September) and the whole spectrum of Digitization: Connected Packaging & Sustainability (2nd November.) Each will address how these issues are impacting on current Smart Packaging development and use.

In November there will be an special emphasis on where Smart Packaging is making a positive contribution to more Sustainable solutions and contributing to reducing waste, better food safety and security, as well as improving ways to achieve a truly Circular Economy for plastics.

Both events already boast a strong line up of leading Smart Packaging product and service providers. These include Aptar CSP, Cambridge Design Partnership, Digimarc, Dimaco, Scantrust, Systech, Talkin’ Things, Tapwow, and Wiliott. Several other leading active and intelligent packaging technology providers are set to join shortly and a provisional agenda for September will be published on line soon. As usual this will be a ‘real time’ agenda and updated as speakers confirm.

Setting out the rationale for the two Congresses, Eef de Ferrante, managing director of AIPIA explained, “We consulted with our Advisory Board and other leading members who are developing or using the technologies and these topics came out as clear areas of primary interest. The pandemic has highlighted many ‘pain points’ in supply chain management, not least to do with distributing PPE and now vaccines. How to harness the full potential of Connected Packaging using digital solutions and making it work in a Sustainable environment is a challenge which many on both sides of the AIPIA community – developers and users – are keen to address. As usual with AIPIA, we aims to go beyond explaining the tech to understanding its impact and how best to apply it commercially.”

Real ‘use cases’ will be featured to illustrate how Smart Packaging is benefiting food, beverage, cosmetics and pharmaceutical markets already. They are an opportunity to listen to and learn from many of the leading exponents of Smart Packaging solutions, as well as network with them and Brand Owners in Discussion RoomsAIPIA is using a ‘user friendly’ virtual meeting platforms to deliver value and an effective meeting environment for everyone.

While the Association looks forward to getting back to Person-to-Person in 2022 the pace of developments in Smart Packaging continues to accelerate continuously. So these two virtual opportunities for 2021 should not be missed!

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.
