Following its great success in the UK, Germany, Russia, the Middle East and Ukraine PrintWeek—the world’s best read printing magazine—is now in India.
The print industry has a key role to play in India’s rapidly developing economy. This is borne out by the regular launches of new newspapers and magazines into an already flourishing print media scene; growing demand for textbooks; and the rise of a packaged goods industry.
The print market which been valued at $12.6bn in 2006, is expected to double to $25.1bn by 2012.
The first issue focuses on Drupa which is the Olympics of the print industry. There will be 34 Indian exhibitors more than 10,000 visitors visiting the trade fair in Germany from 28th May onwards.
It is against this background that Haymarket Media launched PrintWeek India. The magazine contains breaking news, opinion and analysis from leading industry players and commentators. The editorial content will also be uploaded on its global web portal, http:// printweek.com. Printweek India’s focus is to serve the Indian print industry by providing inspiration, education and a forum for debate.
The magazine is edited by Ramu Ramanathan who has over twenty years experience in the print industry. At present the magazine reaches out to 12,000 people in the print industry and would steadily increase the number to 20,000.
The other titles in the Haymarket stable in India are: Campaign India, Autocar India, What Car, Autocar Professional and What Hi-Fi.
