Coming from world’s leading industry players and academic centres, over 60 speakers will present their research on core inkjet technologies during TheIJC (The Inkjet Conference) on 29 to 30 October 2019 at Crowne Plaza Düsseldorf.

Several hundreds of developers, innovators and decision makers are expected to join the event to peer into the future of digital printing and assess its impact on various manufacturing processes.

‘TheIJC has established itself as the focal point for learning and discussion between all those who want to make global connections and share thoughts on inkjet innovation. Each year hundreds of participants leave the conference with a head full of ideas, new partnerships and a complete technology update,’ said Peter Buttiens, CEO of ESMA (European Specialist Printing Manufacturers Association), organiser of the event.

‘Within the community that meets at TheIJC we look at a chain of events: the core technology, the integration, the equipment and the market application. Each development or evolution in the core technology is assessed against the application and the market requirements. Some core technology developments will revolutionise the application, whilst the same core technology development will be irrelevant in another market. With over 60 presentations, the conference covers all areas and explores the links between them,’ said Steve Knight, director of Digital Direct Technologies, co-organiser of TheIJC.

The conference programme opens with plenary sessions with insights from all major printhead manufacturers. Afterwards topics from hardware, software, vision systems, ink and curing, innovation and research are presented on three parallel tracks. The first confirmed titles have now been announced (technical details and further information for all other presenters will be released nearer the time). For programme updates please visit

TheIJC 2019 features 60 presentations, an exhibition of 80 tabletops and an expected total of over 500 participants.
