With 25 speakers covering almost every aspect of smart packaging technologies the AIPIA India Summit will be the most comprehensive event of its kind for the South Asian markets. Topics covered include Track & Trace for Food and Pharmaceuticals, Anti-Counterfeiting, Authentication, enhancing the shopping experience with Connected Packaging, Recycling and the Circular Economy, ‘printing’ without ink, Augmented Reality, Printed Electronics, Monitoring Food Freshness and of course the all-important Brand Protection.

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.
