PS aka Print Summit is an annual 'Knowledge Seminar hosted by our Association (Bombay Master Printers' Association BMPA, since 2005) for stakeholders from the print-packaging and allied industries. This annual event is undertaken by the Association as a unique effort to commemorate: Printers Day. They enable this colloquium as a tribute to Johannes Gutenberg a German innovator whose invention, the movable type, revolutionised mass printing. Incidentally, Johannes Gutenberg was commemorated by the Time magazine as Man of the Millennium at the dawn of this millennia. The show coming up on Jan 24th will be the eleventh edition of PS. The BMPA is steadfast in its goal to construct an agenda that consolidates the progress made over every past Print Summit edition rendered since 2005 and turn it into a celebration of Knowledge and Understanding. We desire to make the Key Note address more conspicuous and build content that resonates and heralds the changes that are shaping our industry - challenging it and redefining its relevance.
