FM Future is a business development and communications consultancy dedicated to helping innovators grow their businesses through the power of thought leadership, storytelling and communication.

Following the success of the inaugural FuturePrint Virtual Summit in June, the second edition of the forward-thinking event will take place over five days from the 12-16 October. The first day of the event will be dedicated to ‘Young Guns in Print’, celebrating print’s young leaders, highlighting entrepreneurs and innovation, and exploring how to attract, retain, and empower young talent in print.

During the June summit, more than 55% of attendees were from the 18-35 category, leading event organizers FM Future to build a day of targeted content into the speaker programme that appeals to and inspires younger people in the industry. The entire first day will feature presentations and interviews featuring under 35s in a broad range of roles, sectors and locations, as well as in-depth panels exploring the opportunities and challenges facing young people in today’s industry.

Marcus Timson of FM Future adds “We were very happy to see that young people made up a significant proportion of attendees during the first summit, and wanted to ensure that our mission to provide free, engaging and valuable content extended to the future leaders of the print industry. The line-up of young talent is fantastic, and as well as being useful to young people, the Young Guns in Print content programme is sure to be incredibly beneficial to seasoned print professionals too – it’s an amazing way to kick off five days of insight and innovation.”

Young Guns in Print features speakers from Landa, Bluetree Group, Cambridge University, Xaar, Solimar Systems, Epson Europe, Avery Dennison, Print.com and many more.

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.
