Digital Innovators’ Summit presented by FIPP and VDZ scheduled to be held from 24 to 25 March 2020 in Berlin, Germany will go ahead as planned. A notice titled ‘Position statement on Coronavirus Outbreak for DIS 2020’ said, “We are actively and continuously monitoring the situation around Covid-19 Coronavirus and we wish to express our sympathies to all those around the world who have been affected. We are paying extremely close attention to the guidelines being issued by the WHO, by the European Union and the German government.

Currently, the German Federal Health Ministry advises travellers to steer clear of heavily impacted areas, which does not include Germany, and to exercise the same kinds of preventive measures they’d use to avoid influenza and other illnesses – i.e. frequent hand washing.

We would ask everyone that is attending the DIS to consider whether they might be affected by any quarantine measures before starting their journey. If you are showing any symptoms of flu-like illness, then we would ask you to respect your fellow attendees and give the event a miss this time.”

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.
