Nottingham based specialist systems distributor and service provider, ArtSystems, has announced 8 April 2020 as the date for its first Wide Open Print Forum. Entitled the Décor Event it will take place at the DotDigital offices, London Bridge.
Hosting the event in conjunction with BPIF, LFR, HP, Dimense and ColorPro, ArtSystems will not only set out lucrative business opportunities arising from décor applications, but also address ways to break down the barriers facing printers who wish to enter or expand their presence in the sector.
There will be presentations on a variety of topics including: the general print marketplace and the décor market in particular; how Latex technology can address the barriers to entry for the décor market; the bespoke wallcovering market and the opportunities it present, and much, much more.
The Décor Event is the first in ArtSystems’ new series of Wide Open Print Forums, each of which will respond to, and clarify, business opportunities arising from new and emerging print applications. The event will kick off at 10 am and finish by 4 pm. There will be plenty of time during the day for questions and answers to address any specific questions that attendees may have.
Russell Harpham, sales and marketing director for ArtSystems, explained: ‘We identified the need for an open space where printers and décor designers can gain access to the latest product information by talking face t -face with technology manufacturers, experts, and vendors. A space where they can ask their questions without feeling under any pressure to buy.
‘Attendees to our first Wide Open Print Forum will be offered in-depth insights regarding the latest technology and applications, which will help reinforce their confidence about entering - or expanding their activities in – the décor application arena.
‘They will be invited to share knowledge with experts, while also forging invaluable networks with like minded specialists, in an educational environment a world away from the more traditional, sales oriented trade shows.’
Russell added, ‘We firmly believe there is a real need for this type of event. This first Forum has been created in response to the torrent of requests we have received from users, vendors and re-sellers, all urging us to provide more knowledge based activities.
‘Thanks to this initiative, printers who want to discover more before embracing new and emerging technologies, but don't want to be sold to, can be confident that, at last, there is a worthwhile source of information at hand.’
