Taking inspiration from the IT Capital of India, the conference theme ‘Varnam – Where Paint Meets Technology’ is based on leveraging technology for the paints industry.

Speaking on this occasion, Mr. Jalaj Dani, President, IPA said, “The Indian paint industry is on a growth trajectory. This biennial conference provides an ideal and common platform for industry discussions on providing differentiated customer experience, opportunities, challenges, market trends and best practices”
“This three-day conference will witness participation from a large number of paint manufactures and raw material vendors. There will be power packed sessions on a wide range of topics including GST, Skill development, Automation, Digital Transformation, Innovations and so on, which will be deliberated and moderated by renowned experts” he added.

The Indian paints industry has been growing at a rapid pace over the years. However the growth hasn’t been accompanied by supply of adequate skilled talent. IPA has been working closely with National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) to bridge the talent gap. Recently, IPA signed a MoU with NSDC under which it will train three lakh painters over the next three years.
