WAN-IFRA India conference is back to Chennai after a gap of 6 years. This is also the silver jubilee year of the conference since its inception in 1992 and the event has grown to be the largest news media conference in the sub-continent. Over the years, technology has helped the publishers to increase the news consumption volume, either through print or digital. Print circulation is still maintaining a positive trend in South Asia and the technology has made it possible to print with high yield, with relatively lesser cost. There is a trend towards print turning to be the profit centre, with operational excellence and innovative initiatives.

WAN-IFRA for the first-time launches World Editors Forum South Asia summit in India. This has another added attraction now.  

The Board of World Printers Forum, the print community within WAN-IFRA, has decided to run this year's World Printers Forum Conference at WAN-IFRA India 2017.

This means that topics and speakers of the Conference will have the added inputs from the Board and reflect international perspective, while integrating the regional pressing issues in the programme.

This conference includes:

  • The Expo
  • Learning workshops
  • Parallel conference tracks
  • South Asian Digital Media Awards presentation
  • Printing plant visit
  • Gala dinner makes it a not-to-be-missed event.
