The Kolkata Literary Fair is on, and starting later today from 2:45 pm India time. Looks good, sounds good and many of the sessions actually are fun!

Translation, actually it’s no longer the future. As Yuval Noah Harari would say, it’s not just our capacity to portray reality or what’s there but our imagination to create fiction and myths. Our capacity for languages and to evolve new meanings and to get into each other’s heads is the hallmark of human consciousness. Why do we want to be there, where? Everywhere! In each others’ hearts and minds. In each other cities and particularities. We want to share each others sounds and inflections and experiences that require you to imagine and dream. Translation is the experience of the human condition, it is the inevitable migration because it understands that there are no boundaries or countries except the rivers and edges of forests and creation!

Translation, actually it’s no longer the future. It’s everywhere and finally enjoying the richness of the hundreds of the subcontinent’s languages and thousands of dialects. Stories are traveling everywhere.

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.
