The Smart Office Solutions Zone showcased a combination of industry-leading printing devices, unified communication (UC) solutions, and optimized print services. This synergy offered a glimpse into a future of streamlined workflows and boosted employee productivity.

Unified Communication platforms streamline workflows by merging communication tools (calls, messages, meetings) into a single platform. This not only simplifies daily work for employees but also provides valuable data on communication patterns. While some specialized tools may still be needed, a unified platform offers significant benefits for most knowledge workers. These platforms are increasingly cloud-based, offering more features and easier disaster recovery compared to traditional on-premises solutions. Businesses can now attract and retain top talent regardless of location, as employees can work from wherever they’re most productive.

MOBOTIX surveillance cameras are intelligent video systems that are essentially computers with a lens. Their robust design ensures reliability outdoors, while indoor options offer exceptional value. MOBOTIX thermal cameras add another layer of safety, using change in temperature to identify potential hazards. This integrated ecosystem enhances situational awareness and operational efficiency which are the key benefits for modern businesses.

Additionally, the Smart Office Solutions Zone presented next-generation Smart MFP devices that offered cloud-integration as well as robust security. With its seamless marriage of speed, reliability, the product arsenal was a glimpse into the future, where Intelligent Information Management becomes the backbone of a thriving organization.

The Business Application Zone brought Konica Minolta’s complete production printing workflow to life. Visitors witnessed the process unfold, starting with high-volume printers and progressing through post-press applications like UV spotting and embellishments. The zone culminated in a demonstration of precise roll-to-roll (R2R) labelling, highlighting the power of on-demand label printing. 

Seeing real-time label creation showcased the potential for significantly reduced lead times and minimized inventory. This streamlined workflow empowers businesses to react swiftly to changing market demands. Overall, the PowerHouse event provided a platform for customers to experience how partnering with Konica Minolta can elevate their business through efficient and responsive printing solution.

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.
