FICCI is organizing a free GBO webinar on “Export of Indian Publishing Content & Services” (Indian stories going overseas) as part of the Frankfurt Book Fair (FBF) Special Edition on 14 October 2020 at 11:45 hours IST. The list of speakers at the event includes Ratnesh Jha, chief executive officer – India and South East Asia, Burlington Group; Claudia Kaiser, vice president, Frankfurt Book Fair; Preeti Vyas, chief executive officer, Amar Chitra Katha; Vineet Bajpai, author; Ravi Deecee, chief executive officer, DC books; Mudit Mohini, director, Vishv Books; and Neeraj Jain, managing director, Scholastic India.

FICCI (Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry) has always considered books as a valuable media for the development and promotion of human values. Books help in documentation of new ideas, preservation and knowledge communication and the holistic development of an individual. The Covid-19 pandemic has had a disastrous effect on the book publishing industry in India. FICCI aims to give a new status and identity to the Indian publishing industry through this webinar.

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.
