Taking place on November 10-12 at the Munich Trade Fair Centre in Germany, the InPrint Show is exclusively designed for the industrial print market, including the production of screen, speciality, digital, inkjet and 3D technologies.
Having only launched last year, InPrint 2014 attracted nearly 7,000 visitors, with 54 per cent at a senior level of some of the world’s leading manufacturing companies, and InPrint 2015 is set to build on this success.
What is industrial print? InPrint show directors, Frazer Chesterman and Marcus Timson, explain more in their own video.
Converter caught up with the event’s co-director, Frazer Chesterman, and he said that he is hoping to significantly increase the number of visitors this year and create more interest around industrial print as a result.
“With 150 exhibitors, of which more than 60 are new exhibitors, InPrint is characterised by offering high level expertise, product launches and showcases,” he said. “Unlike any other traditional print event, our unique audience comes from both the manufacturing sector and industrial print production companies, as well as from traditional print houses looking to generate new revenue streams.”
Chesterman added that there is a growing range of applications among evolving technology for applying inks, coatings, liquid and 3D material to more and more substrates.
“This event is for the printer who is interested in ‘Tomorrow’s World’ and who wants to understand what opportunities there are to develop their business further.
“With industrial print technologies being highly innovative, the underlying expert knowledge and understanding is what manufacturing companies rely on when implementing new technology into their production line.”
InPrint 2015 will include a comprehensive technical conference featuring around 60 free seminars, discussions and showcases alongside the show; Chesterman said it will provide a lot of knowledge sharing and learning opportunities that will support classical printing companies in moving their business forward towards industrial print.
