The Bombay Master Printers’ Association (BMPA) has been organizing Print Summit since 2005 as a celebration on the occasion of Printers’ Day annually. Over the years, the organizers have consciously steered Print Summit away from being print-centric to a more holistic event with an eclectic choice of entertainment too.

Over the previous editions, delegates at Print Summit have come from a variety of segments, such as commercial printing, package printing, labels, POP-POS, wide format printing, on-demand printing, corrugation, creative industry, and ad agency. Personalities attending the conference are largely owners, decision-makers, technologists, shop floor personnel, marketers, designers, and admin folks and students.

Just like every year, Print Summit 2020 too will see speakers from varied backgrounds. Some of the speakers lined up for Print Summit 2020 are D Shivakumar, group executive president, Aditya Birla Group; Gaur Gopal Das, who is an international life coach; Josy Paul, chairman, BBDO India; Vivek Krishnani, managing director, Sony Pictures Entertainment India; K Shankar, chief executive officer, Feedback Consulting Services; Vivek Bhargava, chief executive officer, DAN Performance Group; Iqbal Kherodawala, chief executive officer, Printline Reproductions; Manish Sharma, co-founder, Printo/Canvera; Naresh Kumar Dasari, managing director, Macro Media Digital Imaging; Pragnyat Lalwani, director, Seshasai Business Forms; and Kaushal Sampat, senior advisor, Rubix Data Sciences.

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.
