Several keynote speakers have been lined up, including Stephane Pique of Accenture, the current chairman of AIPIA’s Advisory Board, and Nakul Pasricha, President, of the Authentication Solution Providers Association (ASPA) who will give an overview of the Anti-Counterfeiting scenario in India and Asia.

Another important feature of the Summit are the Round Tables where delegates will be invited (it is by invitation only) to have more in-depth discussions with presenters. For example, Systech, a very active AIPIA member (part of Markem-Imaje) which provides packaging coding, product authentication and traceability solutions will host a Round Table on Challenges in brand protection and opportunities for implementing anti-counterfeit and market diversion systems. Another, hosted by Morphotonix will cover the Pros and cons of various product / packaging-embedded commercial anti-counterfeiting solutions – with a focus on rigid plastics.

The focus of the Summit will be very much on providing real solutions for the issues facing India’s Brand Owners, Packaging Converters & Designers and Logistics providers who all face major challenges from counterfeit goods, market diversion, unregulated supply chains, and the need to engage more directly with consumers who are becoming more and more demanding about the quality, provenance, and authenticity of the products they are buying.

Commenting on the Program, Eef de Ferrante, managing director of AIPIA said, “We are delighted to see so many experts in the Smart Packaging space from India. It is important for us to gain insights from them on the particular needs and priorities in both India and the Rest of South Asia.”

There is a good mix of both Indian and Western technologies, often these compliment each other. Companies are using this Summit as a springboard to get more recognition in the marketplace or are highlighting their partnerships with local companies – such as Evigence Sensors with Lisaline LifeScience Technologies or VerifyMe with TechInd. We hope AIPIA and its partner IPPStar can be a portal where companies can make contact to do business together,” he added.

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.
