Packaging South AsiaFrom there to here – automation at interpack and Packplus — The interpack exhibition in Düsseldorf in early May and the Packplus in New Delhi in mid-June both address similar subjects and audiences although at varying scale and complexity. interpack’s vastness goes beyond comprehensive and it is a bit far to travel unless you have a general need to know and a particular problem to solve. Packplus is conveniently local, compact and to some extent does show which of the global manufacturers is really interested in the Indian and South Asian market. In fact, for many of us Packplus can be as much a place to learn about automation as interpack.
