International Packtech-IppStar Conference in Mumbai 16-17 December 2016

The International Packtech-IppStar Packaging Design, Innovation and Technology Conference will be held on 16 and 17 December 2016 at the Bombay Exhibition Centre. Messe Düsseldorf India and IppStar will jointly organize the conference alongside the biannual International PackTech India / FoodPex India at the Bombay Exhibition Centre in Mumbai. While the PackTech India / FoodPex India will take place from 15 to 17 December 2016, the first annual IppStar-PackTech India Packaging Design, Innovation and Technology Conference will take place at the conference hall at the same site on 16 and 17 December.

The Packaging Design, Innovation and Technology Conference in Mumbai this December will have strong discussion components on food safety and wastage and on innovations in packaging design and technology that address the food processing and packaging industry. We hope to attract product managers from major consumer product companies to share their experiences and challenges as well as to participate in a nuts and bolts conference that is committed to a high level of India focus and a great deal of interaction on bottom of the pyramid packaging innovation.

Packaging South Asia is the cooperating media partner for drupa 2016 which is scheduled to be held from 31 May to 10 June at Dusseldorf, Germany.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
