7 January 2022 – Teamwork Arts, the producer of the Jaipur Literature Festival (JLF), rescheduled the 15th edition of the Festival today. Previously scheduled for the end of January, the Festival has now been rescheduled to run between 5 and 14 March 2022. Indian Printer & Publisher had reported on 6 January that an official announcement regarding the new dates will be made today. The on-ground program will be from 10 to 14 March at Clarks Amber while the virtual sessions will be from 5 to 9 March 2022.

Covid-19 cases have been rising steeply in Rajasthan with 2,656 new cases reported on 6 January, while the Pink City alone had 1,438 fresh Covid-19 infections. Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and son Vaibhav Gehlot also tested positive for Covid-19 yesterday.

The Festival will follow all Covid-19 protocols that will be mandated by the Central and Rajasthan Governments during the time of its rescheduled dates.

Sanjoy K Roy, managing director of Teamwork Arts, who produce the Jaipur Literature Festival, said, “Keeping in mind the advent of the new variant and the sharp rise in the number of cases across the country, we have thought it best to reschedule the Festival and hold it in March 2022. We remain committed to bring the Festival back to Jaipur as an on-ground, immersive experience, promoting dialog, discussion, and debate on books and ideas.”

The annual Jaipur Literature Festival will be back this year at its cherished home – Jaipur – in a hybrid avatar with both its on-ground magnificence as well as its nifty virtual presence. The hybrid version will enable a larger audience to access the Festival offerings, reaching out to book-lovers across continents. There has never been a more powerful feast of literature, discourse, and camaraderie than this Festival.

Registration and access to the online edition of the Festival is free and open to all. Registration to the on-ground edition of the Festival will be available at Rs 200 per day.

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.
