The organizers of Labelexpo India will be hosting a four-day roadshow in early October in conjunction with the Offset Printers Association. Visiting Tamil Nadu, Gujarat and Punjab, the roadshow events are being especially held for offset printers looking at diversifying their businesses into label and package printing.

The event will give Indian printers an unmissable regional opportunity to find out more about what label printing and Labelexpo India has to offer their businesses. Each roadshow stop will include lunch and a tailored seminar featuring expert speakers from Labelexpo India’s industry partners and supporting organizations. Latest global and regional trends will be discussed while speakers from exhibitor companies will share customer case studies and top tips on realizing and maximizing the commercial benefits of offering label printing.

The dates and venues finalized for the roadshow events are: 3 October – Sivakasi Offset Printers Association Auditorium, Sivakasi, Tamil Nadu; 5 October – Hampton by Hilton, Vadodara, Gujarat; 6 October – Regenta by Royal Orchid, Ahmedabad, Gujarat, and 8 October – Friends Regency Hotel, Ludhiana, Punjab.

Labelexpo India will be held at India Expo Centre in Greater Noida (Delhi-NCR) from 17 to 20 November 2016. With over 200 industry-leading exhibitors, Labelexpo India is all set to bring together the entire supply chain with machinery, ancillaries, substrates and ink suppliers all under one roof. Labelexpo India is supported by the Label Manufacturers Association of India, All India Federation of Master Printers, Delhi Printers Association, and Authentication Solution Providers’ Association.

Jade Grace, Labelexpo India event director, said, “The Labelexpo India roadshow will give a preview of what to expect at Labelexpo India this October. It will give a taste of the highlights for this year’s show. The label sector is the print industry’s most robust area with sustainable growth and ongoing development. There are excellent opportunities within label printing for offset printers to grow and enrich their businesses, and we hope the roadshow will be a valuable chance for Indian printers to educate, communicate and collaborate.”

While entry is free to Labelexpo India, offset printers attending this year’s show will be invited to a scheduled program that is dedicated to them and have access to an exclusive VIP lounge.

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.
