Like every year, printers across India and the world observed 22 October as Printers Unity Day with an aim to work in close cooperation and develop greater networking. The day also aimed to unite the printers belonging to different categories, regions, and sizes and those working with different technologies. 

Printers sported a ‘Proud to be a Printer’ badge to show unity, solidarity, and strength.

Speaking about the purpose of the event, Parveen Aggarwal, president of the Offset Printers Association, said that “the Printers Unity Day provides an opportunity to reaffirm the inherent strength and resilience of the printers of the country to withstand the actual and potential threats to the unity, networking, and strength of the printing industry.” 

He said that 22 October is observed as Printers Unity Day every year on an international scale. 

Peter Deckker, president, Sri Lanka Association of Printers, appreciated the idea of celebrating the Printers Unity Day, a needy attitude that needs to be nurtured across the world.

Kamal Mohan Chopra, president of the World Print & Communication Forum (WPCF), said, “Let’s be together to help each other to show that we are really ‘proud printers’ try to hold hands. Jointly we can succeed and conquer any challenge” 

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.
