Ipex 2014 is set to have a dedicated ‘World of Wide Format’ sector to the show, which will take place at in London from 24-29 March.
Event director Trevor Crawford said, ‘1000m of show space has been given over to the area and about 12 wide-format manufacturers have signed up to exhibit there. It’s a chance for commercial printers to come and see the opportunities being offered by wide-format.’
Other areas of the show will also touch on wide-format including the series of Masterclass sessions aimed at providing visitors with the strategies, tactics, technology and best practices to run their businesses better.
Crawford mentioned that pre-show initiatives will include a ‘Mapping the Future’ digital download, which will be available in a couple of weeks. This will look at where print as an industry is going. And much closer to the show, there will also be a 16 page print/media special in The Sunday Telegraph.
