Lounge with Picon at The Print Show 2022
Picon, the trade organisation that represents and supports graphic arts suppliers in the UK, will once again exhibit at The Print Show this year, with plans to use the event as a key meeting point for existing and potential members.

The association works with manufacturers and suppliers to the printing, paper-making and paper converting sectors, with many of its members expected the attend the event this September either as visitors or exhibitors.

Bettine Pellant, Chief Executive of Picon, reported that the association’s core goal at the exhibition will be to provide members and would-be members with a place to “meet, talk and refresh”.

She said: “The Print Show marks a welcome return to in-person marketing and an opportunity to network and trade in a buzzing business environment.

“We have continued to support our members throughout the pandemic, sometimes remotely and increasingly in person, and we are pleased that several of them have the confidence to return to the exhibition scene to promote their products, meet customers, and exchange information and ideas with their peers in the industry.

“We will use the opportunity to meet and greet members and to talk to a wider graphic arts audience and get a handle on current thinking and the latest developments.”

This year Picon will not have a traditional exhibition stand this year, but instead, it will run a lounge for its members to relax in or hold business meetings. Those interested in joining Picon, or any existing members that want to catch up on the latest goings on from within the association, including gathering information on the grants Picon can offer them to help them recruit young people or train staff, can also drop by.

Pellant continued: “Although the pandemic instigated a number of interesting marketing developments, such as live demonstrations, there is still added value in being able to talk one to one with customers, to address their particular requirements and to get to know them and their business needs better.

“I know that printers like shows like this where they can research developments and compare and contrast competing products easily, and in a time-efficient way. Suppliers have not halted their research and development during the pandemic, so this is a great platform to signpost new trends, new products and new ways of thinking.”

Chris Davies, Event Director for The Print Show, commented: “We are delighted to once again have the support of Picon and to know that the event will have the backing of a leading trade association that counts amongst its membership some of the leading and most respected voices in the UK print industry.

“Bettine and her committed team provide a hugely important service to the industry – a service that has become even more important in recent years.

“Visitors and exhibitors alike will have the opportunity to learn more about Picon in its lounge at The Print Show and find out how the association can help them and their businesses, no matter which area of the market they operate within
