When it comes to wide-format inkjet at IPEX it’s all about getting the technology in front of potential new investors from the commericial print sector, but it’s worth looking at the talks programme.
If you want to get a good grounding in all the latest digital inkjet wide-format print technology Ipex is hardly the place to do it. One of the largest and longing running UK-based trade print shows it might be, but a platform for already knowledgeable wide-format print providers to investigate the newest wide-format developments it’s not. Having announced in January a ‘World of Wide Format’ sector to the show - mainly to focus the commercial sector’s mind’s on potential diversification into this arena - the feature has since been scaled back and will run as the Wide Format Zone with Epson, Screen, D&K, Grafityp (showing Roland DG kit) and M Partners signed up at the time of writing as exhibitors within the space. No doubt, other vendors will have wide-format kit and solutions in other areas of the show too but, for those of you already operating in this market, what's probably of more use to you will be the event’s seminar/educational features.
