Besides the Award, the MMS will host the 3rd edition of the Knowledge Roundtable: Power Lunch @ The MMS.

Tuhsar Dhote, president of the MMS said, “There would be eight roundtables, each pertaining to a particular vertical of print – digital (value addition); POS - new trends; books & catalogues - next level; luxury packaging – innovative; labels – specialty; paper bags - eco-friendly; retrofit - old machines – new methods; and finally digital - inkjet. The MMS taskforce has called them Centres of Competence (CoC). There would be eight to ten members at each table.”

The modus operandi is simple. Questions will be sourced in advance and these would be shared with each of the groups. The questions will be about recent trends and future technologies. Dhote said, “The questions will not be about costing or clients or your colleagues. The roundtable will host discussions that hope to boost partnerships and encourage the use of future technology to develop new products and shopfloor experiences, plus boost opportunities across the breadth of India.”

The post lunch session at Hotel Sahara Star, Vile-Parle (E),  Mumbai will witness three power-packed speakers: Deepak Phatak, Shriniwas Joshi and Chandrashekhar Vaze. After which the evening will culminate with the grand finale of the Lifetime Achievement Award.
