Dayakar Reddy, President – IPAMA, apprised delegates of the various initiatives taken to promote the next edition of Printpack India 2021.
Speaking on the initiative, Jignesh Lapasiya, organiser, Print Innovations 2019, said, “Printing is one of the oldest industry. In contrast to global markets, Indian printing industry has been witnessing a healthy growth. Indian printers have been competing with global brands with high quality works.
However, the industry has been witnessing a swift change in trends, and to sustain in the market, it is necessary that printers are always up to date with the technological changes.
Print Innovation is a platform to exchange ideas, learn from experts and network. We are glad that over 300 printers from Aurangabad and Nasik benefited from this.”
Print Innovation was hosted on 20 August at Hotel Athithi in Aurangabad and at Hotel Greenview in Nasik on 22 August. Print Innovation techno-seminars were also covered extensively by leading media organisations.
Vinayak Tambe, President of Naik Zila Mudrak Sangh said, “Print Innovation was a fantastic opportunity for the printers to update their knowledge about latest trends in printing technology. As an assocation which is committed to improve the standards of printing, we are delighted with the way the seminars were planned and hosted.”
The seminars also saw a participation from Nanded and Nandurbar region. “For printers like us, often accessing knowledge is not very easy. Everyone cannot travel to seminars held in the metros. It was a good experience for us to learn from the experts,” said Prashant Wani from Nadurbar, one of the particpants from Nasik seminar. He also mentioned that further to the seminar he is contemplating upgrading his facility with newer technology.
“One of the best things about hosting Print Innovation across the Tier 2 cities and smaller towns is that their is a hunger for knowledge.
Since we started Print Innovation, we have been inundated with requests to take the seminars to more cities. We are working on a strategic plan to take the seminar to more cities,” added Lapasiya.
