TOPA also received a timely and spontaneous donation Rs 2.50 lakhs from K Karunakar, vice president of TOPA and managing partner, Sreeven Offset Printers.

These donations will add to the corpus fund of the TOPA Centre of Excellence coming up by next year in a sprawling one-acre plot of land at Dandu Malkapur, Pocharam Mandal in the New Model Green Industrial Park being developed by the Telangana Government. The Centre will provide advanced skills training in printing and packaging techniques to employed personnel in the industry. The Centre of Excellence will give basic print orientation and training to students in printing technology to improve their employment opportunities. The plan is to assist in creating a continuous supply of trained, semi-skilled, and skilled personnel to the printing and packaging industry.

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.
