Printoberfest is back!
Graphic Printing Technologies (GPT) has announced the return of Printoberfest, the October Festival of Signs, Display and Graphic applications, which returns to GPT’s office and showroom in Reading on Wednesday 7th and Thursday 8th October.
The event, which is held in association with GPT’s manufacturing and distribution partners, offers an excellent opportunity for sign and print companies to see some of the industry’s latest products, including the only HP Scitex FB550 in the south of England,while meeting with technology experts from GPT and its suppliers.
It will also feature a series of workshops on HP’s new flatbed printing solution (HP Scitex FB550) and Latex printers, Mimaki’s latest range of flatbed and roll-to-roll UV and solvent printing, flatbed digital cutting solutions from Esko Kongsberg, RIP software from Shiraz, Wasatch, Rasterlink and Onyx and GPT’s latest range of media solutions from the likes of MacTAC.
There will also be live application areas, with industry specialists demonstrating the latest techniques, including vehicle wrapping, plus the application of floor graphics, wallpaper and soft signage.
Shaun Thompson, General Manager of GPT, commented: “We are very keen to follow up on the success of last year’s Printoberfest, particularly as this is often a most important time of year for our customers as they gear up for the busy Christmas period and also plan for 2016. Thus, we are providing them with the chance to get up close and personal with the very latest wide format printing technology, while also taking advantage of lots of giveaways, massive discounts, additional warranties and – because it’s Printoberfest – plenty of sausages, pretzels and beer!”
