NEWS: Packaging Design, Innovation and Technology in India


AIPIA is looking for up to FIVE speakers to participate in a one day conference during the PACPROCESS INDIA event in New Dehli 12-14 December 2019. The show is organised by Messe Düsseldorf India.

The conference, which will be co-organised by Messe Dusseldorf India and IPP Star, publishers of Packaging South Asia, and will be partnered by AIPIA. AIPIA is the key content partner for the conference.

Name of conference:  PDIT2 Conference (Packaging Design, Innovation and Technology)

Venue: Pragati Maidan in New Delhi

Format: will take the normal AIPIA format of 35-40 minute presentations. I will do an overview to  kick off proceedings. A&IP will be part of the agenda of the overall conference but with dedicated session(s). Broadly we want to cover: design, save food, sustainability and recycling, logistics, automation and active and intelligent packaging for anti-counterfeiting, traceability and consumer engagement.

We are looking for Sponsors, for those who want to exhibit on an individual stand (6-9sq m) packages including a sponsorship will be about €2300 - €3300. For those who would like to display on a collective area (say 4 sq m in an AIPIA/Star group area) we are working on a space/sponsor price.

Speaker only spots may be available (subject to availability.) But we cannot offer travel or accommodation subsidies, so if you have local or regional people then that would be a good solution both logistically and financially.

FACTS on the Show and Indian Market:

From 2015 to 2020 the turnover of the packaging industry in India is set to increase annually by 16% - to US$ 73 billion. India has a wealth of high tech talent which is developing the sector rapidly.

India is the second largest producer worldwide of agricultural products, but the level of food processing is comparatively low. Currently over 90% of basic household products are unpackaged, so much of it is wasted. But a huge increase in middle class consumers means that has to change.

India’s Food and Beverage processing industry is growing at CAGR of more than 11%

India's pharmaceuticals industry already today counts among the largest in the world. An increasing population and improved medical care provide it with an annual growth of 18% until 2020. India’s pharmaceutical exports stood at US$ 17.27 billion in FY2018

According to the domestic rating agency ICRA, the Indian logistics sector is expected to grow at a rate 8-10% over the medium term.

As per IDC’s Asia/Pacific Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker, India smartphone market shipped 142.3 million units in 2018, registering 14.5% year-on-year growth compared to 2017

pacprocess India is co-located with  indiapack and food pex India, along with the concurrent event drink technology India organised by Messe München.

AIPIA believes it is a good time to ‘dip our toe’ into the Indian market and even more so with the help of two strong, locally based partners. If you would like to join us please contact Andrew Manly in the first instance to express your interest:
