The PDIT2 Conference on 13 December is a knowledge event

Not just a talkfest but an essential milestone in the India packaging calendar


It is a busy season with exhibitions and conferences around the country. For me, the last six weeks have been a hectic time – just returning from Labelexpo in Brussels, and K in Dusseldorf. In our country, the consumer product companies and the packaging suppliers are busy in meeting several commitments; and, attempting to revive growth at a time when there are many constraints. In this season of noise and atmospheric inversion, we are offering one more event on 13 December 2019 in New Delhi that you have to take a call on – to participate and attend.

You must be asking, is it really worth it to take time off and take part in one more talkfest? We think the Second Packaging Design, Innovation and Technology will be as stimulating as the first one we held in Mumbai in December 2016. The best time to think harder is when the economy is not driving you, and when you have to drive it yourself.

PDIT2 is not a generic conference with many sponsors giving sales pitches – it is an opportunity to intelligently take stock of the sustainability discussion, to present design innovation, new directions, and case studies, and to share – to share knowledge and take-home value. At PDIT2, IppStar and its partners are committed to discussions with designers, brand owners, technology partners, and packaging converters on innovation, sustainability, and Active and Intelligent Packaging. Three intertwined opportunities taking the industry forward.

Registrations have started coming in from leading global brand owners and leading Indian packaging suppliers. In our conferences, the articulate audience is as influential as the speakers and panelists at the front. We always keep plenty of time for discussion in every session.

Speak up, share, and participate in the PDIT2 Conference at Pragati Maidan on 13 December 2019. In parallel to the conference are the pacprocess, food pex, and Drink Technology India exhibitions also at Pragati Maidan from 12 to 14 December. From the list of exhibitors, these events are looking solid and well worth your visit. I hope to talk to you in the coming days to encourage you to register and to bring something to share. Send me an eMail or call me if you want to talk.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
