|LMAI team at first 2011 conference|
Two years on in July 2013 the Indian Label industry was back in Goa with a bang, this time at the Grand Hyatt, a much bigger venue than the Park Hyatt as a larger gathering was expected. True to expectations of the LMAI team the number of delegates crossed 390, a commendable job. World class entertainment was delivered after learned speakers had shared their knowledge with the delegates in an extremely focused conference. My report on this event as well is available at http://harveersahni.blogspot.in/2013/08/rocking-at-goa-indian-label-conference.html. At the last LMAI conference there were murmurs that the venue needs to move to another destination but there were many who were adamant that it should remain in Goa. As time elapsed the murmur in Goa became louder leading to a decision to move the conference northwards to a heritage city in Rajasthan. Finally it was decided to hold the conference in Jaipur.
LMAI conference is slated to be held in Hotel Fairmont in Jaipur on the 16th, 17th & 18th of July 2015. Fairmont Jaipur is an ode to the pink city through awe inspiring architecture and decor, inspired by the Mughal Dynasty and Royal Rajputs of yore. This luxury Jaipur hotel is nestled amongst the majestic Aravalli hills, all 199 rooms and suites are elegantly appointed, to reflect a perfect blend of traditional Rajasthani décor and modern amenities. Over 400 delegates consisting of converters, material suppliers, consumable suppliers and press suppliers are expected to congregate at the conference venue. The event promises to deliver value in terms of knowledge, networking and entertainment. The industry constituents are already excited to share the good times with colleagues. Expecting a shortage of rooms the LMAI management has also made arrangements in hotels nearby.
Finally the young Chandan Khanna heading multi-location Ajanta Packaging having multinational presence with units in Daman(India), Baddi(India), Thailand and Ajman(UAE) sums it all. He says, “The LMAI conference, which comes once in two years is an event that personally I try and ensure I attend. The presentations, open panel discussions, the getting together with your peers and industry suppliers in a relaxed environment is good for all industry constituents. I feel, positive changes occur from the networking whereby all in the industry stand to benefit. It is a must meet event. I am looking forward to being at the conference”.
With excitement building up and registrations coming in at fast pace, the LMAI conference promises to deliver value and fun in the heritage pink city of Jaipur. I look forward to an august gathering where competitors, suppliers and customers will rejoice togetherness!
