Greetings and welcome to AIPTIA!
 
It is an honor to get elected again as the President of AIPTIA. Being associated with this organization for over twenty-one years, I strongly believe that everything that we venture into should be goal and result oriented. I bring in my 45 years of experience in photographic trade and Industry through  retail, wholesale import and distributions, and look forward to sharing the same with the members and fresh talent.
 
As we enter the New Year, our goal is to empower the existing members with training opportunities, while reaching out to new talent and strengthening the numbers, to create a community of like-minded people. We’ve created a pool of existing members with complete information that will help them network and build professional associations. AIPTIA’s strength and pillars are its members, so our objective is to empower them.
 
Moving into a digital system of information dissemination as against a classroom format, keeping with the changing times and trends is extremely important. Our all new website will ensure that relevant and current information is just a click away. Regular updates from various sources and authorities have been provided for the member’s benefits.
 
This year from Jan 2016, AIPTIA  published their maiden quarterly magazine, CLASSIC IMAGING  for the benefit of members. The magazine has received a great support from the trade and industry and has increased its readership and reach throughout  India. It is expected to remain a neutral magazine of the Industry covering all possible events, news , business section, tips & tech and product information  etc. of our imaging Industry. It  will reach target audience soon.!
 
I would like to extend my gratitude to the preceding presidents at AIPTIA for their continuous guidance in past. In the same breath, I would also like to thank  office bearers and committee members along with zonal members , working towards the upcoming event CONSUMER ELECTRONIC IMAGING FAIR  2017 being held at Greater Noida, New Delhi NCR.
 
The next twelve months will offer us opportunities and challenges. With your support, I’m certain that AIPTIA will achieve greater heights and make a strong impact in the Imaging Industry.
Good Luck!
Jayesh Mehta
(President – AIPTIA)
