World News Media Congress
Sharing takeaways from the 73rd World News Media Congress

Wan-Ifra organized World News Media Congress 2022 in Zaragoza from 28th to 30th September. With over 1200 participants from 75 countries, this was one of the biggest and most successful Congresses in recent years.

The Congress is the most important annual gathering of news media executives, typically attended by 700 to 1500 C-level decision-makers from more than 80 countries. The Congress hosts important community meet-ups.

As journalism emerges from a fragile world, we find the news industry stronger than ever. Many news publishers increasingly gravitate towards producing newsletters as a means of growing their audience.While news interest is high, sustainability, democratic freedoms, truth and prosperity are at risk.

The main aim of the annual Congress is to give a global perspective on the industry. Perspective on how newsrooms are reinventing themselves to deliver valued, trusted, quality journalism to their audiences despite resource challenges.

Perspective on winning publishing strategies against which to benchmark progress. Perspective on how innovation and leadership are critical when transforming a media business. Perspective on why a free press is so crucial – and so at risk – in all too many parts of the world. Most importantly, perspective on why all these cannot thrive without the other.

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.
