LMAI (Label Manufacturers Association of India) has recently announced the 6th biennial LMAI conference 2023 themed, “Creativity-Innovation-Sustainability”, to be held at Jaipur on 20th to 23rd July 2023. The registrations for the same have begun. The main conference is slated to be organised at hotel The Leela Palace Jaipur and due to the big number of delegates expected, accommodation is also arranged at Hotel Fairmont Jaipur, just a few minutes away. The Leela Palace is nestled against the majestic backdrop of the Aravalli range. It boasts over eight acres of landscaped gardens and an enviable location – near key heritage and tourism sites within the ancient city complex. The majestic splendor of Rajputana heritage at this landmark structure uses traditional thikri craft, inlaid mirrors, Shekhawati paintings and silver foiled domes in its decor. The second hotel, the Fairmont Hotel is an ode to Jaipur, popularly known as the pink city, through awe inspiring architecture and decor, inspired by the Mughal Dynasty and Royal Rajputs of yore. This luxury Jaipur hotel is also 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 600 delegates consisting of label printers, leading industry suppliers from India and around the world and media are expected to attend this biggest event of India’s label industry.

In 2011, writing the preview of the first ever  LMAI conference, which was held at Hotel Park Hyatt Goa, the author wrote in this blog, “History is being created”. So true it turned out to be! The 2011 LMAI conference titled “Innovations Unlimited” was an immense success. Now 12 years on, we nostalgically look back to rejoice the value of this biennial event that brings the entire Indian label industry, including printers and suppliers, together for 3 full days to network, share knowledge and party together. In 2011 the progressive Indian label fraternity was elated by the presence of suppliers and media from destinations around the world and the journey has moved on with growing numbers of delegates at the conference. The large congregation justifies the saying, “More the merrier.”

The previous editions of LMAI conferences have been held at venues that include Goa-2011, Goa-2013 Jaipur-2015, Agra-2017, Kochi-2019, due to the pandemic 2021 had to be cancelled and now planned to be held at Jaipur 2023. The number of delegates has been steadily growing, from just 271 in the first showing, it is likely to cross over 600 in the forthcoming conference. The label industry has been undergoing a tremendous transformation in the ensuing period. India is already or almost, the most populated country in the world. It is one of the five largest economies with a young population having median age of 29 years and a huge young population being educated and coming out of universities and skill development centers. The demand for consumer goods is steadily rising and

 so is the demand for labels and packaging. Labels have always been registering a robust double digit CAGR (compounded annual growth rate). Currently there is an increasing number of new entrants in label manufacturing leading to intense competition as well. In a continuously evolving scenario, LMAI has been putting across message to its members to adopt innovations that will result in value addition. However, this year sensing the imperative need for industry to implement sustainable manufacturing processes, LMAI in this year’s theme for the conference is putting across a message to be creative and innovative along with a focus to manufacture products that are sustainable and have reduced impact on the environment. Thus, the theme “Creativity- Innovation- Sustainability.”

Delegates partying!

The LMAI organizing team works hard to put together a variety of programs along with technical presentations, to liven up the moods of their members who attend the conference. There is knowledge sharing, entertainment, partying, motivational presentations, and a lot of fun. Already 31 leading industry suppliers led by platinum sponsors Avery Dennison have confirmed their support as sponsors for this prestigious conference. There are still many others who are in-waiting to confirm their sponsorship. Once the list is complete and the offer for sponsorship closed, the complete list will be shared with industry. The memories of these wonderful events linger on, triggering yearnings to have more such events that bring this colourful industry together.
