Wan-Ifra has introduced new event formats with a centre stage to its supplier partners in the last twelve months. CMS solutions day and the European Printers Summit, our first in-person event since the beginning of the pandemic, proved to be trendy events. At the European Printers Summit, a new matchmaking platform facilitated more fruitful exchanges between participants and the product offerings presented during the event. And even though virtually, we also had the chance to celebrate the 10 anniversary of Digital Media Europe with more than 300 participants.

Investing in sustainable business models to support a free press benefits us all. However, Wan-Ifra would not accomplish its goals without the support, involvement and enthusiasm of its sponsors and donors. In 2021, more than seventy media partners contributed to the programming of the Wan-Ifra portfolio. They included significant global players like Naviga Global, Manroland Goss, UPM, Google News Initiative, Meta, Chartbeat, Piano, Eidos Media, Sophi, United Robots, Stibo DX, Agfa, Protecmedia, McKinsey, Lineup Systems, and many others.

In 2022, it is no surprise that virtual conferences will continue to be crucial in advancing innovations to the market and generating new business. At Wan-Ifra, in-person events will resume mid-year, with all appropriate precautions to ensure a safe environment for its participants.

Despite the challenges that 2022 still may bring, and regardless of the platform, be it virtual or in-person, Wan-Ifra is committed to helping its members and media tech partners connect and grow together.

The Wan-Ifra Connect team is available to media partners to make the most of the opportunities offered through an extensive portfolio of events, conferences, awards, technology directory, research reports, newsletters, dedicated webinars, and targeted mailings.

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.
