FIPP Asia's 6th edition to take place in China

FIPP Asia will take place in Wuhan, China, in partnership with the China Periodicals Association and Hubei Administration.

The event will bring together the world’s leading magazine media publishers and industry suppliers to explore the latest trends and solutions from the region and beyond.

The event will consist of a two day conference (14-15 September) with speakers from around the world and an adjacent expo (14-16 September) attracting some 100,000 people across the 3 days.

Who should attend FIPP Asia?
FIPP Asia presents an ideal opportunity for publishers, marketers and technologists at senior level operational and strategic positions, network and do actual business.

It will be an opportunity to learn from speakers from China and other markets around the world, to network with Chinese and international delegates and to discuss business opportunities in China and beyond.

The expo will provide international delegates with an opportunity to first-hand sample media and technology offerings, and discuss market developments in-depth with those in attendance.

As Ross Sleight, a keynote speaker at the FIPP World Congress in London in 2017 said, “if you want to know the way of the world tomorrow, it is a pretty good idea to look at China right now.”

Message from current CEOs:
James Hewes, president and CEO of FIPP

We are delighted to be partnering with the China Periodicals Association (CPA) and the Hubei Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television (HAP) to be holding the 6th edition of FIPP Asia in the fantastic city of Wuhan, China.

For the first time, FIPP Asia will be part of the China Periodicals Fair, a biennial event attracting exhibitors from across China and visitors from across the region. More than 100,000 people are expected to pass through the doors of the Hubei Exhibition Centre, giving international exhibitors a unique opportunity to reach Chinese businesses and consumers.

The FIPP Asia conference strand also promises to be a crucial networking and knowledge-sharing opportunity for anyone interested in publishing and media in the region. More than 150 senior international delegates from the publishing and media industries will join more than 250 delegates from China.

The programme will see presentations and discussions from a host of international speakers and the cream of the Chinese digital and media industries.

Concluding with an optional tour of local publishers, FIPP Asia is a ‘must attend’ event for anyone serious about learning more and doing business in China and beyond.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
