Keynote speaker line-up complete for IPEX 2017

The keynote speaker line-up at IPEX 2017 is now complete. The organisers of the show have revealed that Kevin Goeminne, CEO of CHILI publish, will address audiences on the third day of the show, Thursday November 2.

The final choice of keynote speaker is indicative of IPEX’s vision for a diverse, inclusive content programme at the show’s ‘Print In Action’ conference. Goeminne joins senior graphics industry consultant Francois Martin, and Deborah Corn, architect of one of the largest online communities of print stakeholders. Together, with Goeminne, they form the three keynote speakers for the first three days of the event.

Content Curator at IPEX 2017, James Matthews-Paul, said, “Kevin is one of the youngest CEO’s in the industry and has a contagious passion for print and its future. His fresh outlook and experience in coding and programming, combined with his entrepreneurial background, gives him a unique perspective, which he is excited to share with our audience.”

Goeminne will deliver an account of the continued success CHILI publish is experiencing, providing insights into market crossover opportunities. CHILI publish is a scale-up business with backing from investment firm Volta Ventures, providing online document editing and rendering solutions for digital marketing services worldwide. In his keynote, he will share the moments behind the eight years of growth that made CHILI publish a fast-growing brand within the marketing communications business.

During his keynote, Goeminne will aim to enthuse the audience for this cross-market helicopter approach, he said: “CHILI publish evolved from start-up to scale-up because we ventured beyond pure print in order to create an all-encompassing niche solution. Partnerships and integrations with Digital Asset Management, Product Information Management and Management Information System and in-house developing, helped us ensure that our online document editing solutions are solid when thinking web-to-print. Digital has evolved, so has print — I want to highlight the best of both worlds during my keynote and show what a combination of both can unlock for businesses worldwide.”

IPEX is the UK’s longest running international print show. The event takes place from October 31 to November 3, 2017, at the NEC in Birmingham. IPEX 2017 will be a showcase of innovation, technology and print in action, covering a range of applications including printing, software, digital, and finishing.
