The event began with a couple of training sessions, first of the session was conducted by Pradeep Kulakkada on the topic of ‘technical negligence in printing press’ while the second session was handled by Rakesh R Warrier who spoke about ‘costing to be followed in each printing unit’.
“The training sessions were appreciated by the members and staff representing the member units. There was a huge demand for a daylong training session which we will be considering for the future,” said Rajesh G, honorary secretary of KMPA.
R Gopalakrishnan, former secretary of the Kerala Sahitya Akademi was the chief guest of the celebrations. This was followed by the training sessions.
The evening event also saw an interactive session on “How to leverage new technologies in improving your business” which was moderated by the Raju N Kutty. The panel included Rajiv B and Deekshith KS of TechNova, plus Kulakkada Pradeep and Anoop Venugopal.
“The general consensus was this Printers’ Day celebration was one of the most productive from KMPA and have set a benchmark for the years to come,” said Rajesh.
Earlier this month, KMPA had also hosted a day-long Print and Beyond seminar in Kochi on 3 February. An event which the industry elders said had placed the print association firmly on the map of India.
