Agfa to host virtual event for offset printing industry

Agfa has announced Studio 4D48, a six-day virtual event featuring sessions to support printing companies worldwide through the current business challenges and help them plan for the future. The event will run from 18 June to 26 June, coinciding with the original drupa time frame.

The series of targeted educational webinars focus on market and technology trends as well as on the way printing companies can benefit from Agfa’s latest made-to-measure printing innovations for the offset printing industry. These include printing plates, hardware, and a range of workflow, color management, print standardization, and screening software. All of them underpin Agfa’s ECO³ approach, aimed at making print operations more economical, ecological, and extra convenient.

“4D48 would have been our booth number at drupa,” says Guy Desmet, head of Marketing for Agfa’s business division Offset Solutions. “Drupa and other tradeshows may have been postponed or even canceled due to the COVID-19 outbreak, but our commitment to the printing industry stands strong. We want to inspire and engage in printing companies. In Studio 4D48, our experts will give them an update on our offering, and how it can move their businesses forward in a cost-effective way.”

In total, the event will play host to two webinars per day across the six days, consisting of a mix of expert talks, user cases, and Q&A sessions. Each webinar focuses on a specific market segment, including commercial heatset and sheetfed printing, offset packaging, and newspaper print production. Various kinds of automation and efficiency increases, as well as cost reduction, will be a common thread. All webinars will be streamed from Agfa’s headquarters in Belgium, in English. They will last between 30 and 45 minutes each.

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.
