Esko’s new initiative to connect and integrate its prepress software with its customers’ production workflow is what it is highlighting and explaining to existing and potential customers at Printpack India. Meanwhile, with its strong footprint, its customers keep adding new software and upgrades that are being announced at the show. Among these is Creative Graphics the multi-locational flexo plate trade supplier to the flexible packaging, label, and corrugated industry with plants in every region of the country. Creative’s signing of two licenses of Esko’s latest generation high PDF editor ArtPro and Advanced software was announced on the first day of the show.

Esko’s Karan Talwar said regarding the announcement, “Creative Graphics has been the front runner in the adoption of the latest and best technology from Esko for their prepress activities. It’s a natural progression for them to adapt to the latest generation PDF-based editing software through ArtPro+ Advanced and by seamlessly integrating it with their existing Esko Automation Engine server workflow.”

Another announcement on the first day of the show was of Nawalkishore press’s investment in an Esko Prepress System. Achintya Soni of Nawalkishore said at the time of the announcement, “Esko’s packaging prepress systems are very user friendly and the company provides prompt service support. The Artioscad and ArtPro+ packaging software suite will give us a high level of standardization and consistency in production. 

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.
