With the key agenda to leverage technology to bolster customers’ business, the gathering focused on how they can use Konica Minolta’s technology and products to expand their businesses.

Speaking about the partnership Katsuhisa Asari, managing director, Konica Minolta India said, “It was exciting to be part of this event. Meeting with our loyal customers and listening to their success stories gives us immense pleasure and a sense of satisfaction. During this meet, we discussed the latest technologies and innovations in the production printing segment. We held conversations on how businesses have performed during the pandemic and to what extent Konica Minolta’s products have helped them.”

Konica Minolta has been sustaining more than 50% market share in the production printing space for more than 10 years. With the Indian economy growing, Konica Minolta is excited about the growth of production printing in India.

“The last two years of the pandemic were difficult for all of us, majorly because we were not able to meet our customers in person. Now that things are going back to normal, we thought it would be the best time to organize a meet. Hence, the event. During the meeting, we held talks around the economy, the printing sector, innovations in the segment, and areas where Konica Minolta can contribute or improve its existing services. We are taking away some great pointers that will further help us in re-aligning our business in the near future,” added Malhotra.

In recent years, the printing industry has evolved dramatically, creating a path for modern technologies that expedite operations and deliver high-quality prints. On the customer side, their demands are also shifting. Konica Minolta India has developed offerings with integrated workflows and accessories to automate printing solutions which saves time and is able to meet print requirements of the customers.

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.
