The exhibition aims to draw visitors from across the Southern region through extensive promotional efforts designed to reach a broad audience. Additionally, targeted participants from across India and Sri Lanka are expected to attend. The attendee profile encompasses a wide range of professionals including Commercial Printers, Package Printers & Label Printers, Brand Owners & Print Buyers, Package Converters & Corrugated Box Manufacturers, Textile Printers & Professionals, Signage & Graphic Arts Specialists, Retailers, Manufacturers & Industry Suppliers, Packaging Professionals, Design Houses, Art Directors & Consultants, as well as representatives from Trade Publications, Advertising, Marketing, Media & PR Agencies, Government Bodies, and Trade Associations.

The Indian Paper Corrugated & Packaging Machinery Manufacturers’ Association (ICPMA) plays a vital role in advancing its members’ interests and nurturing an environment that promotes growth, innovation, and excellence in India’s corrugated and packaging machinery sector. Partnering with the association, Bharat Print Expo will connect with emerging and established leaders in the segment, serving as a promotional platform for new and innovative corrugated packaging technologies developed within the country.

“That’s the rationale for the name – Bharat Print,” said Anil Arora, president, ReEnvision Events, the Show organizers. “India’s corrugated packaging sector is experiencing robust growth, buoyed by advancements in technology, a commitment to sustainability, evolving market demands, and a strong emphasis on customization, all contributing to the introduction of various new products. We aim to bring all that on Show,” he adds.

ReEnvision, the organizer of the Show, continues the tradition set by its affiliated group companies, which have successfully launched or co-organized India’s premier events in the printing and packaging sector, including the India Label Show, Pack Plus, and PAMEX. ReEnvision Events is a sister organization of Print-Packaging.com.

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!
