Naked truth for Coventry print companies
December 1, 2009 by Gareth
The countdown to IPEX 2010 (18 – 25 May) at Birmingham’s NEC continues. The exhibition will be a truly global event for the print industry. The industry is moving fast. This is well summed up in Print Week’s top 500 annual reports
… change in the UK print industry…. well advanced and being rapidly accelerated by the trying economic conditions.
Innovation and continual improvement have always been at the heart of the print industry. However, with digital possibilities and smart materials, advances are now happening at an incredible pace. For example, the Xerox iGen4 high speed colour printer now offers print on demand, print sizes up to 364x571mm, at speeds up to 110ppm. It also offers colour consistency throughout the run.
Competition is hot. Printing companies in Coventry are no doubt aware of the current economic climate. Print makers, historically, have always had to act directly to the forces of supply and demand, perhaps more so than any other business. This coming exhibition will bring all the latest advancements together and will be a valuable resource for printers looking to stay ahead of the game.
Deciding whether to attend the exhibition or not should not depend on the size of your company. If you are a small print company in Coventry, mainly printing stationery and business cards, or a large print company in Coventry dealing with high volume runs, this exhibition is of equal importance to both.
Global attendance is expected. The advantage for printing companies around Coventry is that it’s right on your door step in the NEC.
