Wan-Ifra is hosting India’s Printers Summit 2021 on 17 and 18 November 2021 in Chennai. The event is co-sponsored by The Indian Newspaper Society. The annual event in India for the print community takes a new format this year and will be held as an ‘invitation-only’ occasion to learn from experts and to meet with suppliers to review their upcoming products and services.

The event will begin with the welcome dinner and proceed with the “Best in Print Asia Awards” on 17 November where invitees meet and greet over cocktails and dinner and recognize Asia’s best newspaper printers. The award showcases the publications’ ability to print at the highest quality according to international ISO standards (ISO 12647 & ISO 2846) and Wan-Ifra standards.

The next day is reserved for networking and in-person meetings with product and solution providers to discuss business and the latest developments in the industry. Attendees will also have the opportunity to learn and exchange ideas over two panels on cost and CAPEX optimization and innovation in product and process.

Thus the hybrid event will have a live face to component consisting of the dinner on the first evening and the best printed Asian newspaper awards followed by two panel sessions on the next day with plant of time to visit the sponsors stalls. This is expected to be a partial return to normalcy where the networking aspect takes place as well some technology understanding and marketing. About 110 attendees are likely to come to Chennai to take part.

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.
