virtual.drupa- Lead generation and networking

Exhibitors and visitors at virtual.drupa can connect in the Networking Plaza. Thanks to an intelligent matchmaking tool, they can find companies and contacts relevant to their business, thus boosting their network building and generating new, valuable leads even before the trade show starts. This is where participants can also make appointments in virtual meeting rooms for the trade fair duration from April 20 to 23, 2021, to be optimally prepared for the start of virtual.drupa.

Find relevant contacts

To participate in matchmaking, visitors must create an additional personal profile in the Networking Plaza during registration. Exhibitor personnel has to be invited by the company’s main contact. The more precise and detailed the personal information on activities and interests in the matchmaking profile, the better participants can benefit from the networking options, and the more likely they are to find the contacts they are looking for.

On this basis, the tool makes initial suggestions about companies and users who meet the set search criteria. The participant then can invite them for a meeting, marking them as interesting or irrelevant. The intelligent algorithm learns from these actions and thus suggests contacts that are ever more suitable.

Anyone who has already discovered exciting products and services in the Exhibition Space or one of the numerous exhibitor Live Web Sessions can contact exhibitors directly to arrange bilateral meetings. Companies and contact persons can be found quickly and easily in matchmaking via a search field function – and there is also the option of targeted communication via the exhibitors’ online showroom in the Exhibition Space.

Personal exchange via virtual meetings

Relevant contacts can be saved on an interest list in matchmaking to contact them later or arrange an appointment. This way, participants can first get an overview before scheduling their meetings.

Afterward, the pre-marked contacts can be invited to an individual session in a virtual meeting room. In the matchmaking calendar, participants can find an overview of personal appointments and – for exhibitors – also those of their team colleagues. Here it is possible to enter availability to organize meetings with more significant numbers of participants if required.

Exhibitor representatives, who are added by their company’s main booth contact and thus linked with each other, have additional options in the team area to organize their contact requests and appointments as effectively as possible. They can coordinate with colleagues or take over appointments from each other. In the shared exhibitor account, new leads are listed in their entirety, and contacts are recorded.

Easy participation, great benefit

While registering for virtual.drupa, visitors can activate their participation in matchmaking at the same time. It means that the initial settings from the virtual.drupa profiles are automatically transferred to the matchmaking profile. Company information of exhibitor representatives is automatically copied when invited by the company’s main booth contact. After successful registration, matchmaking can be used via both the browser and the drupa app to connect with the community effectively.

Matchmaking is activated via the Networking Plaza from now on until October 2021 to offer exhibitors and visitors maximum exchange and added value and to allow them to familiarize themselves with the various functionalities already now.

 

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.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
