The department of Printing Engineering at Jadavpur University, Kolkata organised its annual PRINTVIZON seminar on 26 and 27 December 2017. The colorful 2-day seminar is organized by the students to discuss advancements, developments and opportunities in printing. It is also an important event for networking with well placed alumni in the print industry.

Kamal Chopra former president of the All India Federation of Master Printers who was invited to deliver the keynote address at the event emphasised the need for quality print education. Chopra said, “Printing is the second largest industry of the world and is the biggest invention of mankind till date. Printing is the mother of all revolution and the history of printing is the history of civilization itself . . . . printing has an unequalled history of strength – and believability. It has the power to shape ideas and influence action. It is important to note in today’s world of sound bites – of fleeting impressions – of here today gone tomorrow messages, that print lasts. No one should every underestimate this power. You all know the glorious past of this industry and there is bound to be a promising future in this profession. So you are in a wonderful profession and you must feel proud to be a printer.”

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.
