global media trends panel
Take part in professional executive surveys to share your insights and opinions on the most relevant topics and trends impacting newsroom strategy

WAN-IFRA is seeking executive editors, journalists, thought leaders, and innovators to join the editorial community of its newly launched global media trends panel. As a panelist, one will be asked to take part in professional executive surveys (only a few per year) to share their insights and opinions on the most relevant topics and trends impacting newsroom strategy.

The person will receive early access to the survey results and research to inform one’s own strategy. It is an opportunity to attend executive gatherings (webinars, roundtables, workshops) on these topics with peers at key events and other opportunities.

Feedback provided would be used to improve WAN-IFRA research initiatives and reports, and to share knowledge and insights with our members. All results will be anonymized.

Joining the panel is easy. With just a click on the button, the profile would be created in less than 2 minutes. WAN-IFRA assures that all the personal data that one has provided is strictly managed by WAN-IFRA and its Panel Research Technology partner, Syno International, in accordance with their privacy policy.

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.
