Amandeep Singh Kukreja, managing director, PS Dyeing House, shared, “I visited Gartex Texprocess India to see new machinery and chemical products for a new product line I am thinking about. It is related to the printing of T-shirts. My visit to Gartex Texprocess India was beneficial and saw few machinery that are helpful for me. I have their contacts and have meetings planned with them.” 

Satisfied by the industry updates, Angad Singh Puri, managing director, Franklyn Wearing, said: “I came here looking for printing technologies that we are using for our own brands and find new technologies and machinery to simplify the methods.”  

The line-up of sessions across three days centered around sustainability in textile manufacturing and technological advancements in the industry. This included sessions such as ‘circular Fashion: Building Pathways For ESG’ organized by Conserve India that discussed the escalating carbon footprint due to lack of policy framework and operational regulations in textile industry.

The panel included industry experts who put forward their perspectives on the matter. Raman Dutta, founding member and general secretary, Brands & Sourcing Leaders Association, said, “There are several schemes and initiatives from the government for MSMEs to become more sustainable like grants for water conservation, 50% reimbursement options for sustainable machinery and practices and other state-wide policies. It is the lack of awareness that is hindering this transition.” 

Sandeep Chopra, head – Sustainability & Impact, Tri-Impact Global laid stress on worker rights in circularity while Gautam Malik, founder, Jaggery Bags highlighted the need for engaging the community as a stakeholder in the circular economy. Recent world developments provide an opportunity to Indian industries to lead the way in circularity.

The satisfied exhibitors and visitors have enthused us for the next edition and enhance the fertility of the platform.”

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.
