Toppan to exhibit advanced Government ID at Virtual Africa Tech Festival 2020

Toppan Printing, a global enterprise in communication, security, packaging, décor materials, and electronics solutions, will be joining Virtual Africa Tech Festival 2020, Africa’s largest and most influential tech and telecoms event. The annual week of events, including and Africa Tech, usually takes place in Capetown, South Africa, but this year will be held online from November 9 to 12. The Toppan booth will showcase a range of cutting-edge security offerings centered on government ID and e-government solutions.

Toppan produces and manages government IDs that help ensure the seamless and secure functioning of societies around the world. Toppan’s technologies and services respond to the rising number of IDs being seen as a result of the expansion of biometric authentication and national ID initiatives, such as Japan’s “My Number” system, as well as the increase in IDs for “things” spurred by the advance of the IoT.

eGovernment initiatives for the digitalization of procedures related to social security, tax, and other areas of public administration have gained momentum due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Toppan’s booth will showcase an array of advanced offerings from Toppan Ecquaria, a Toppan Group company specialized in eGovernment solutions.

“It is very exciting to be joining Africa Tech Festival this year,” said Takeshi Kabayama, head of the Security Business Center in Toppan’s DX Design Division. “There is growing focus on both IDs and the digitalization of government operations around the world. We look forward to showing how Toppan can deliver what governments need with diverse solutions that ensure security, streamlined processes, and added value.”

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.
