s part of the board elections on 20 October 2020, Dr Hauke Berndt, chief executive officer of ppi Media, was appointed as the first chairman of Digital Wirtschaft Schleswig- Holstein (DiWiSH), the central network of the IT, media and design industries in North Germany.

Digital Wirtschaft Schleswig- Holstein (DiWiSH) is an industry network that brings together SMEs (Small and medium-sized enterprises) from the digital economy between the North and Baltic Seas. The association aims to strengthen Schleswig-Holstein’s capacity and image as a technological region and promote the establishment and expansion of SMEs in the technology sector to create more jobs there.

DiWiSH held its general meeting on 20 October this year – for the first time in a completely virtual environment. Dr Hauke Berndt was elected as the new first chairman by the 50 members in attendance; he succeeded Lars Müller, chief executive officer of wigital GmbH, who left his role on the same evening.

The digital economy is an important sector that is driving digitization in Schleswig- Holstein. With 250 members, DiWiSH is the largest industry network of SMEs in the IT, media and design industries between the North and Baltic Seas and a strong voice for our industry. I look forward to developing this position over the next few years,” says Hauke Berndt.

In addition to Hauke Berndt, the DiWiSH board includes Professor Dr Doris Weßels from Kiel University of Applied Sciences and other representatives of companies and universities in Schleswig-Holstein.

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.
