Print Show to return next year
The Print Show, which took place for the first time at the NEC in Birmingham during October, attracted more than 130 exhibitors and 5,384 visitors over the three days, according to organiser, Link Exhibitions.
“We wanted the event to be a true mirror of the UK’s commercial print industry supply chain and I think that’s just what we did,” said Event Manager Chris Davies.
Link Exhibitions has also confirmed that a number of companies that exhibited this year have already signed up to appear at The Print Show 2016, which will remain at the NEC and run from October 11th to 13th next year.
Reflecting on the decision to sign up again, Ben Leeson, Marketing Communications Manager at Konica Minolta, praised the show, stating that it had a “very fresh feel” about it and added that he can see interest in the event growing for next year.
He said: “The industry needed something new and positive that focused on the user. I believe this event delivered that. Visitors seemed happy and enthused, as did the exhibitors, which was great to see.”
Ricoh, which had one of the larger stands in the hall, was also happy with how the event went. The manufacturer confirmed six signings at the show, including the sale of a Pro C9110 to KJB Print.
Marketing Manager Gareth Parker commented that, from a Ricoh perspective, The Print Show worked on many levels. He said: “We liked that the show was well timed, matched our current ambitions and proved popular with printing professionals across all sections of the industry. It was clear it created positive noise around the sector, which was very welcome and added to the overall success.”
