The Publishers’ Exchange showcases the linguistic and geographical diversity of India through a video presentation titled, ‘A multilingual journey across India through poetry’ at the FBF Digital Bookfest in Frankfurt on 17 October 2020 at 2300 hours. From the banks of the mighty river Brahmaputra in the North East of India, via New Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad and Pune to its Southernmost tip in Tamil Nadu, the video takes one on a unique multilingual journey through poetry. Publishers will also be sharing the nitty gritty of the book business in Indian languages in the video while poets beguile attendees with their beautiful words.

Some of the participants of the video presentation include Thodur Madabusi Krishna, Kannan Sundaram, Vasudhendra, Pranav Johri, Gita Ramaswamy, Bhaskar Dutta-Barauh, Sunil Anil Mehta, Meera Johri, and Neeta Gupta.

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.
