The fourth biennial conference organized by the LMAI will be held at Jaypee Palace Hotel and Convention Centre, Agra

The fourth biennial conference organized by the Label Manufacturers Association of India (LMAI) will be held at Jaypee Palace Hotel and Convention Centre, Agra, from 20 to 23 July this year. LMAI, which represents label manufacturers from across the country with the common goal of promoting selfadhesive label applications, expects at least 450 printers and suppliers from the label industry to participate in the event, which has been witnessing a steady growth over the years. First held in 2011 with 240 members, the number of participants to the conference increased to 360 in 2013 and 450 in 2015.

Sandeep Zaveri, president of LMAI said, “Almost 80% of registrations received to date are that from label printers. We are not solely focusing on numbers this time but ensuring that quality printers attend the conference and suppliers get more value out of the event.” Zaveri, who attended the L9 meeting in Beijing recently, took the opportunity to invite around 200 Chinese printers to attend the LMAI biennial conference this year.

LMAI has already received confirmation from 27 companies for sponsorship, which include names like APL Machinery, Avery Dennison, BST Eltromat India, E I Dupont India, Esko Graphics, Flexo Image Graphics, Flint Group, Gallus, Hubergroup India, Insight Print Communication, Intergraphic Pulisi, Kurz India, Loparex India, Macdermid, Monotech Systems, Multitec Aids, Numex Blocks, Omet, PGI Technologies, Reifenhauser India, Siegwerk India, SMI Coated Products, System Flexovision, Tesa Tapes, Tion Enterprises, UPM Raflatac and Vinsak.

“Eminent speakers from each company will talk about the evolving Indian market, user accessibility of their technology and end user benefits, affordability and how  easily one can tap the latest technology. Each sponsor will have the opportunity to make their sales pitch within 25% of the time allotted to them,” said Zaveri.

During the previous edition of the conference, a round table discussion between sponsors and printer delegate members was organized and it eventually became the most popular feature of the event for the knowledge, networking and other values it offered. The round table meet will be held this year too, as LMAI anticipates good response following the success it received last year. The other attractions to watch out for include presentations from motivational speakers, yoga sessions in the morning and entertainment in the evening.
The registration forms for members can be downloaded from the LMAI event website.

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 grown 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 and to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
