VDZ and FIPP, joint organizers of the Digital Innovators’ Summit (DIS), announced that the 2020 edition will be postponed until September. This is due to the impact of the ongoing COVID-19 virus outbreak.

A news released by the organizers said, “We take the health and wellbeing of our attendees, speakers and business partners very seriously. The position in relation to the outbreak has significantly deteriorated in recent days, with public gatherings, mandatory quarantine and travel restrictions in place in a number of countries.

“With more than 60 speakers and several hundred delegates from 30+ countries ready to attend, and with support from committed sponsors large and small, we believe it is in everyone’s interest to postpone rather than cancel the summit. We have therefore decided to run DIS 2020 in parallel with the 43rd FIPP World Media Congress in Estoril, Portugal, September 14th-16th 2020. All existing delegate registrations will remain valid and, to thank you all for your patience and understanding, we will in addition provide free access to the FIPP Congress.”

This will be the first DIS held outside Germany but this is only a temporary measure. DIS in 2021 will be back in Berlin.

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.
