Spectrum stall at In-Store Asia 2019.

The 12th edition of In-Store Asia opened on a positive note in Mumbai on 14 March. The event saw an impressive number of visitors on the first day. The three-day expo, being held at Bombay Exhibition Centre in Goregaon and organized by Messe Dusseldorf India, is having more than 150 exhibitors from both India and overseas.

The exhibitors at the expo are displaying solutions covering areas such as retail design, in-store display and visual merchandising. More than 7,500 trade visitors are expected to attend. Some of the companies marking their presence are HP, Spectrum, Arrow Digital, Ace, Axiom and Azure Press, among many others.

HP is displaying various applications printed on the recently launched R-Series Latex printer. The company launched the hybrid Latex printer R series at Media Expo 2019, Mumbai which was held last month.

Mumbai-based Spectrum, too, has an impress turnout at In-Store Asia. The company is showcasing various retail display solutions made of corrugated board and plastic. The highlight of the Spectrum stand is a complete train which has been built using corrugated board.

On the evening of 15 March, In-Store Asia will host the eleventh presentation ceremony of the VMRD Awards, India’s only competition for visionaries in retail design and visual merchandising. A total of 60 awards will be presented by an international expert jury in 22 categories – one of these being the ‘Store of the Year’.

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.
