Asian Packaging Conference 2017 Concludes

May 9, 2017

The event wrapped up another successful year as it attracted more than 340 visitors from the region.

 

The two-day event, which took place 27 to 28 April in Jakarta, Indonesia attracted more than 340 unique visitors from around the region. Organised by Labels & Packaging Innovation Asia (formerly known as AFTA), the conference attracted business owners and suppliers, packaging printers, converters, brand owners, designers. The conference marked the first edition since the rebranding of the association.

 

 

The 15th edition event featured business and technical presentations which were well-received by the attendees. The intensive programme featured high value, inspirational and knowledge-sharing sessions. The aim of the annual conference is to facilitate an active exchange of ideas, networking and participation in the growing packaging print industry in Asia. The comprehensive conference covered issues in pre-press, digital, flexo, gravure, finishing, design and branding faced by today’s print packaging business owners.

 

 

This year’s conference was supported by a number of associations in the Asian packaging industry, namely NPES Indonesia, the Indonesian Packaging Federation and Label Manufacturers Association of India.

 

A special highlight of this year’s edition was a conference takeover by NPES, who led the second half of Day 2 with seminars and an interactive Q&A session. A main focus was on colour management, as topics broached include colour standardization, improving colour communication and managing brand colour expectations.

 

An “Ask the Experts” session and brand owners panel were organised after, in which visitors were invited to share challenges within the print packaging industry in a dynamic Q&A-style forum. This proved to be successful as it stretched over more than the hour delegated to the forum. Within the session, the audience were able to have their specific business challenges addressed by a diverse panel.
