The second Packaging Design, Innovation and Technology Conference will take place at New Delhi’s Pragati Maidan conference hall in Hall 8, on 13 December 2019. The conference is organized jointly by IppStar and Messe Dusseldorf India simultaneous to the pacprocess and foodpex India exhibition from 12 to 14 December 2019, at the same site.

The event will have great take-home value and will be led by consumer product companies speaking about packaging design, sustainability, food safety, and active and intelligent packaging. The Active and Intelligent Packaging Industry Association based in Europe and Andrew Manley have consented to take a significant part in the conference. Active and intelligent packaging was also discussed at the first PDIT Conference held in Mumbai in December 2016. Sponsorships for PDIT2 and participant registrations for PDIT2 are open.

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.
