The CRD Patna Book Fair will take place from 8 to 18 November 2019 at Gandhi Maidan, Patna. The theme for this year is ‘Per, Paani, Zindagi’ (tree, water, life). Visitors to the book fair will find books, journals, magazines, stationery items, and several other educational supplements on display.

The Patna Book Fair invites intellectuals, readers, students and book lovers to indulge in several activities. There will be book launches, seminars, workshops, street plays, classical music programs, competition for schools and colleges, celebrities from art and culture, and health-related programs.

The event will provide the participants with an opportunity to generate business from the retail customer as well as institutional customers. The unused funds that were allotted by the Education Department to Indian institutions for the purchase of books for their library can be used here to make fresh purchases and add value to the libraries.

The timings of the Patna book fair are 11 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on weekdays and 11 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Saturday, Sunday and other holidays. The ticket for general visitors is Rs. 10 while entry is free for school students dressed in their uniforms provided the school principal requests the same beforehand on the school’s letterhead. Entry is also free for college students from recognized government colleges and the timings for them are from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. (only on weekdays). Entry will be granted based on the ID cards issued by the college. No private college ID will be allowed.

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.
