InPrint 2014 Announces High-Calibre Event Programme Running Alongside the Exhibition

(PresseBox) (St Albans, ) InPrint 2014, the first trade show exclusively dedicated to industrial print within manufacturing, will take place 8-10 April at Hannover Exhibition Grounds, Germany. More than 100 leading companies from the decorative and functional printing sector will present their latest applications, machines, special inks and accessories for printing on metal, textile, glass, ceramics, wood and other surfaces. InPrint focuses on five key technology streams: Speciality, screen, digital, inkjet and 3D print.

Pulling together some of the leading technology owners in industrial print, the event is now topped off with a high-calibre event programme running alongside the exhibition which is free to all visitors to InPrint. At the Conference and Seminar Theatre in Hall 21, experts from the entire print industry will present new ideas and share their best practice for industrial print applications that will help to improve the print production process and ultimately lead to new business opportunities.

Functional & Decorative Industrial Print Conference (8-9 April, Hall 21, 10:00-17:00 hrs)
The conference programme is wholly dedicated to providing practical information on functional and decorative print production within manufacturing. Run by ESMA, the European Speciality Print Manufacturers Association, and IMI Europe, a conference producer for inkjet print, the conference features key opinion leaders and technological game changers from the print industry, including representatives from Encres Dubuit, ESMA, Hymmen, ImageXpert, I.T. Strategies, McGavigan, Marabu, PAS, Sefar, Stratasys, Till, the University of Sheffield, and Xennia.

"We are delighted with the opportunity of organising the Functional and Decorative Print Conference to run alongside InPrint”, says Mike Willis, Director of IMI Europe. “The conference will focus on real industrial ink jet opportunities and developments with speakers who will use their expertise to inform and educate the audience about this growing technology."

Through seminar talks and real life case studies, visitors will learn about technological approaches to speciality screen, inkjet and 3D print production and the potential they hold for manufacturing and business. To complement the conference sessions on 3D printing, Stratasys will organise live demonstrations at the 3D Print Factory on stand F16.

Showcase Theatre (10 April, Hall 21, 10:00-16:30 hrs)
On Thursday, the stage is all set for the Showcase Presentations at InPrint 2014. Visitors are invited to attend exhibitor presentations on their various products and services showcased at the exhibition. The speaker line-up includes representatives from Agfa, Canon, Kiian, Lumejet, Mimaki, Neschen, Smithers Pira, Stratasys, Thieme, Werk II, Xaar, and Xennia. They will talk about opportunities to grow into new markets and demonstrate how they developed new products such as printing systems, ink heads or fluids in order to make specific industrial applications work for their customers.

Great Innovations Session & Award (10 April, Hall 21, 13:00-14:00 hrs)
The aim of the one hour Great Innovations Session is to provide visitors with a snapshot of the array of innovative industrial print technology on display at InPrint: Ten exhibitors will be given the chance to pitch their products and services to a panel of leading experts within a five minute timeslot. At the end of the session, the panel chaired by Eric Bredin (Stratasys) will ask questions of the presenter and award scoring points for both presentation and answers. In addition, visitors are invited to vote for their favourite innovative product by using interactive keypads.
