Bhupinder Singh in his inaugural address said “The Indian packaging industry has grown substantially over the past few years, owing to the evolution of consumer demand.” To facilitate this demand, Messe Muenchen India has launched its new platform PackMach Asia Expo to be co-located with Drink Technology India and World Tea & Coffee Expo. 

Singh said, “We had about 180 exhibitors in the 2019 edition of Drink Technology India. Now we have 15,000+ sqm exhibition space, featuring 250+ exhibitors displaying 3000+ products.”

This edition is expected to showcase some of the latest packaging machinery solutions for the pharma, FMCG, food and beverage industries. The packaging segment in the overall show has now shown an increase of more than 50% in the number of exhibitors from across the country. 

Most of the exhibitors at the show provide solutions like filling and packaging machines, caps and closures, processing equipment, materials and equipment, coding and marking, label printing, corrugated box manufacturing, supply chain logistics and material handling, and more. 


International Conference on Packaging

Also, Drink Technology India 2022 will provide a platform for the exhibitors to meet the AlcoBev leaders and conduct through its buyer-seller meetings and conferences.
