Opportunity to meet leading brand owners & suppliers

128

The second Packaging Design, Innovation, and Technology Conference (PDIT2) is at Pragati Maidan in Delhi is a compact event taking all of one day – 13 December 2019. The event promises to be a knowledge event with stimulating conversations and take-home value.

In our conferences, the articulate audience is as influential as the speakers and panelists at the front. We always keep time for discussion in every session.

Registrations have come in from brands such as Philip Morris and Britannia and leading packaging suppliers. Allana, Cargill, Creative Labels, Encept, Mrida, and SB Packaging have submitted case studies on innovation in competition for the Jury Presentation on the Conference day. We are expecting more entries for the Innovation case studies, of which six will be invited to make a short presentation – notes on the journey of the pack from original concept to shelf display and the experience in between.

Alok Masterbatches, Avery Dennison, Michelman, SB Packaging, Uflex, and Windmöller & Hölscher have signed up as sponsors. PDIT2 is not a generic conference where speakers give sales pitches; our conference will contain an intelligent sustainability discussion – speakers and panelists will share solutions. Confirmed speakers and panelists include Andrew Manly of the Active and Intelligent Packaging Association, Achintya Lahiri of Coca Cola, Ashok Chandak of NXP, Anuj Sahni of SB Packaging, Barun Banerjee of Nestle, Sukhdev Singh Saini of Colgate, Harshal Parakh of Parakh Agro, Jeevraj Pillai/Shubi Sachan of Uflex, Kriti Soni of Dabur, Prabhod Halde of Marico, Prasanna Sukhi of Kezzler India, Roland Lartigue of Toppan Europe, Rakesh Kumar of Recykal, Ramesh R of Pepsi, Shyam Sundar BK of Tata Elxsi, and Saurabh Singh of Desmania.

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.

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.
