The third edition of InPrint in Germany was held from 14 to 16 November 2017, at the Munich Trade Fair Centre. The exhibition was, once again, able to attract some 3000 high profile industry professionals, including inventors and integrators as well as printing and production specialists from various industry sectors. A comprehensive conference programme provided insight into the latest developments and market potential of this emerging industry sector. In an official awards ceremony, prizes for innovative product developments and outstanding partnerships were awarded to four exhibiting companies. The organisers, as well as the large majority of the 153 exhibitors, were highly satisfied with the outcome of the show.
‘With its specialist community coming together to drive emerging markets for innovative print technologies, InPrint ha s now firmly established itself as the seminal event for print applications in industrial production. While the exhibition is an important platform for the exchange of ideas and innovative thinking, this time a large number of concrete solutions have been demonstrated by exhibitors on their impressive stands. What we can see as a result of this year’s show, is that InPrint is clearly evolving from a developmental networking event into a networking and trade exhibition, with increasing sales activity on the show floor,’ explained Nicola Hamann, managing director at the organisers, Mack Brooks Exhibitions.
In addition to the activities on the exhibition stands, a supporting programme in two conference theatres within the exhibition hall offered visitors valuable insight into prevailing trends and the latest developments in functional, decorative and packaging printing. The sessions included keynote speeches and expert talks as well as a podium discussion and were well received by the attendees.
InPrint wil once again be in Munich from 12 to 14 November 2019. Next year the show will return to Milan, Italy, from 20 to 22 November 2018. The next InPrint event in the USA will take place from 9 to 11 April 2019 in Louisville, Kentucky.
