Following the highly successful first InPrint Italy exhibition last year, show organisers FM Brooks have confirmed that the next event in the series, InPrint Italy 2018, will take place in the South Hall of the MiCo Milano Congressi exhibition centre in Milan from 20 to 22 November 2018.
Dedicated exclusively to industrial print technology, InPrint showcases the very latest technologies and products in the fast-moving fields of functional, decorative and packaging printing. A total of 2,900 industry professionals visited the 2016 exhibition in Milan. Of these, 31% were international attendees from 56 countries. The number of exhibitors taking part was 118 from 13 countries.
Top names return
There has already been very strong demand for stands at InPrint Italy 2018. Some of the industry’s leading names have confirmed their participation, including Fujifilm, Kyocera, Mimaki, Ricoh, Staedtler and Xaar, and by mid-March almost 50% of the stand space taken by exhibitors in 2016 had been reserved for this next edition.
A key feature in the success of the last InPrint Italy show was an extensive seminar and conference programme comprising around 60 sessions over the three days of the show. This provided both visitors and exhibitors with further great opportunities to learning more about innovations in industrial print technologies and the latest market trends.
A similarly informative supporting programme will take place alongside the 2018 exhibition, making this the must-attend event for buyers of industrial printing and for suppliers of the increasingly advanced equipment, products and services that are opening up so many new opportunities in the sector.
Commenting on the launch of InPrint Italy 2018, Exhibition Director Olivia Griscelli said: “We received very positive feedback from the first InPrint Italy show in Milan, so we are pleased to be returning next year. Italy is a very important market for industrial printing as it has a very diverse manufacturing base. It is also home to many companies at the forefront of technology in this field. Our aim now is to build on the success of 2016 to deliver a great event next November.”
