Publish Asia 2009 conference, to be held in Chennai on September 23-25, will bring together the collective strength of IFRA India and IFRA Asia, Singapore for the first time. This year, the IFRA India Conference is combined with Publish Asia, the flagship conference of IFRA Asia, and the combined event is titled ‘Publish Asia 2009’.

The conference will have four parallel sub-conferences, each aimed at a specific target group – CEOs, CTOs, Production Heads and Circulation Executives. An interesting list of speakers from India and abroad are invited to the conference.

The 8th Asia Media Awards will also be presented at the gala awards dinner on September 24, 2009 at Le Royal Meridien, Chennai. Asia Media Awards, which over the last seven years has been held in various Asian countries, has grown to become the most prestigious recognition of outstanding work in the fields of printing quality, design, infographics, photography and online among media houses in Asia Pacific and Middle East.

According to a IFRA India spokesperson, leading newspapers in India had confirmed their participation. Internationally, some of the leading newspapers from South East Asia such as Strait Times, Singapore, Kompas, Indonesia, Bangkok Post, and Utusan Melayu, Malaysia, had promised participation in the conference, thus making Publish Asia/IFRA Expo India 2009 a truly Pan-Asian event, the spokesperson further said.

The delegate registrations have already started for the three-day conference accompanying the IFRA Expo India at Chennai Trade & Convention Centre.

The Expo had also attracted new exhibitors like ABB, Bosch-Rexroth, Manroland, Mediawide Labs, Percept Printing and Wifag, the spokesperson said, adding that there were several new enquiries from North American suppliers concerning participation in the expo. “It goes on to prove the success of India as a hub for newspaper publishing business and its potential for future business opportunities,” he said.
