The prospect of easing International travel restrictions as COVID-19 vaccinations increase has prompted Wan-Ifra to shift the dates of its World News Media Congress in Taipei, Taiwan, from 28-30 September to 1-3 December 2021.

“As everyone has been reminding us, great things happen when the community comes together and connects at the World News Media Congress for much-needed, face-to-face discussions about the future of our industry,” said Vincent Peyrègne, Wan-Ifra CEO. “By moving the event to later in the year, we are increasing the chances of holding a vibrant and safe event. We are hopeful that by December, travel restrictions will have eased.”

Taiwan has managed the pandemic exceptionally well through a mix of early and effective prevention and border controls. In addition, its highly digitized population of almost 24 million people embrace technology and innovation, which has helped the government track and contain the spread of the virus.

Wan-Ifra to hold a safe three-day event

The World News Media Congress is the annual meeting of news publishers, editors, and owners worldwide. It is hosted in a different city each year. The 2019 Congress in Glasgow drew around 900 people from more than 60 countries for three days of conferences, executive meetings, networking, and social events. This will be the third time the event will be held in Asia, after Bangkok in 2013 and India in 2009.

Wan-Ifra continues to work with local host partner United Daily News Group and the Taiwan Tourism Bureau to ensure a safe three-day event. The World News Media Congress will include the 2nd World Media Leaders Summit, 28th World Editors Forum, and the 5th Women in News Summit.

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.
