A Bi Monthly Magazine on Printed and Digital Communications

4th Edition of international conference held successfully in Hyderabad 

Three speakers, one each from Denmark, Singapore and Sri Lanka ensured that the printers gathered at the one day 4th Edition of International Conference held in Hyderabad, Telangana on November 18, 2023, returned home with groundswell of implementable knowledge and tips while deliberating the theme on “Current Challenges and Opportunities in the Printing and Packaging Industry.” Joining soon after the presentations from international speakers, Kulakkada Pradeep of Future Schoolz from Kerala enthralled the gathering with essential inputs on what printers needed to practice without any additional financial burden to their presses.
The conference was organised by the Telangana Offset Printers Association (TOPA) with the Support of Govt. Of India, International Co-operation Section Ministry of MSME, New Delhi with the event duly sponsored by the well known organisation Technova.
Speaking on the occasion in his welcome address, C Ravinder Reddy, President of the TOPA listed out the achievements and the steady progress made by the Association since its inception after the bifurcation of the state.
The first speaker Morten Reitoft traced the comparison with the print vs digital world and in doing so he was quite audience sensitive with being bilingual in his slides showing English as well as Telugu. While, Josephine Low enlightened the printers on how to be innovative and how to face the onslaught of the digital world. Dealing with high quality jobs for MNCs and other high profile customers across the world, she explained as a keynote speaker, how Singapore is keeping abreast with the challenges and opportunities being faced by the printing and packaging firms. Speaker from Sri Lanka Janaka Rathanakumara proved that he is a 360° professional being an expert in diversified areas like Sustainable energy, Finance and Mechanical engineering.
The second part of the session was equally interesting and exciting with Kulakkada Pradeep delivering his lecture punctuated with anecdotes and live examples of how to go about implementing standardisation and other parameters to ensure high quality, cost effectively.
TOPA took extra care in coinciding Women Entrepreneurs Day with a Panel Discussion with women entrepreneurs from the printing and packaging industry both from within and outside the country. Akhila B. and Swathi K, entrepreneurs from Hyderabad and Lynette Ong from Singapore were part of the discussion moderated by Jose Thomas.
S. Dayaker Reddy, National Coordinator, TOPA, gave the Vote of Thanks.
