The global print Excellence Awards and the National Excellence Awards in Print took place in Mumbai on 8 February 2024 alongside the Pamex exhibition.

The Black Book 2024 including images of the winning entries and comments of the industry leaders and sponsors was also presented at the function. It contains a comment in its frontspiece by RN Dutta Baroah, president of the AIFMP that starts with a quotation on the top of the page from the 19th century Afro-American newspaper publisher and abolitionist, Frederick Douglas – “It is the mission of the printer to diffuse light and knowledge by a judicious intermingling of black and white.”

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.
