AIPIA and Packaging South Asia are pleased to announce a new virtual Smart Packaging event for India and South Asia. The stand-alone event will focus on some of the critical issues facing India’s burgeoning Food & Beverage and Pharmaceutical sectors – Sustainability/Food Waste & Food Safety/Secure Supply Chains/Consumer Engagement.
We will gather some of the leading practitioners in these areas, offering solutions that can impact waste and extend shelf life, counterfeiting, market diversion, tracking, and forging closer and more dynamic links with consumers. Leading Brand Owners will discover the latest trends and how they can work cost-effectively to benefit their products and build trust with customers.

Delegates will join in ‘round tables’ for one-to-one or shared discussions with our sponsors and speakers. This is the FIRST event of its kind for the Indian and South Asian markets, driven by a powerful combination of AIPIA’s decade of expertise in all aspects of Smart Packaging and IPPStar’s and Packaging South Asia’s local market knowledge and networks.
The program so far has sessions such as Smart Packaging in the Supply Chain, Condition Monitoring, Dealing with the Pandemic, Smart Packaging for Food Safety & Security, Smart Packaging Tech for Authentication, Consumer Messages – Explaining Sustainability thru Packaging, Recycling and Circularity… How Digital Fits In, Smart Materials, Augmented Reality and the Next Step in Smart Packaging and using RFID/NFC/QR Codes to Enhance the Consumer Experience.

The Virtual Congress will also issue a Brand Challenge in advance from one of the Indian consumer product companies seeking a solution for brand security, sustainability, condition monitoring, customer engagement, or any area where technology and packaging can offer a solution. The brand owner will present the Brand Challenge, and in a later session, the winners will present their solution.

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!
