During the London Book Fair, the NBPC committee took forward the Book City project at the Indian Noon event by reaching out to key international publishers. Samir Lukka reports
In the first of its kind initiative and probably the first major challenge for the top ten book printers in India, global publishers were asked if they believe India can be a hub for the book industry, at the Indian Noon event held at level one of Earl’s Court, the venue for London Book Fair on 16 April.
The seed for this event was proposed during the National Book Printer’s Conference at Thiruvananthapuram in November 2011. Top book print firms such as Gopsons Papers, International Print–o–Pac, Jayant Printery, Kalajyothi Process, Lovely Offset, Manipal Technologies, MultiVista Global, Nutech Print Services, Rekha Prints, Replika Press, Repro India and Thomson Press were a part of the process.
The two sessions at Indian Noon underscored the theme of ability, affordability and adaptability. The first session by Pramod Khera was an overview of Indian book print industry.
