After four successful events in Beijing, StoryDrive Asia will now be held in Singapore for the first time, from 10 to 12 November 2016. As well as focussing on the rights and licensing trade for books, films, TV, games and merchandizing, it will promote international cooperation, shed light on new trends and innovations as well as content for the media industries, and support closer business relations with companies in the ASEAN region.

“With a population of more than 620 million, the Southeast Asian region with its ten countries remains an under-explored market with huge potential,” says Juergen Boos, director of the FBF. “By hosting Story Drive Asia in the media metropolis of Singapore, our strategic aim is to establish access for international publishers and other companies to entirely new players, and to help ASEAN companies to reach global markets more efficiently.”

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
