|HP to marshal armada of technology at The Print Show
HP has become the latest major brand to commit to The Print Show this year, signing up for a 140sq m stand at the event and set to bring a large cross section of its printing press technology. The show takes place from October 11th to 13th 2017.
This follows news that major finishing technology player Industria Meccanica Lombarda (IML) has partnered with Perfect Bindery Solutions to quadruple the size of the latter presence and take one of the very biggest stands at the exhibition.
Another key testament to The Print Show’s success, and another vindication of its move to The International Centre for 2017, is that highly-respected UK print finishing technology supplier Encore Machinery has signed up to exhibit. Its managing director Paul Davidson says it was ‘only right’ after the exhibition helped significantly grow its sales and has praised the facilities and professionalism of the venue.
HP and IML join the likes of Epson, KBA, Morgana, Kluge International, Premier Paper, B & R Moll, Intec, AXYZ International, Vivid Laminating Systems, and Grafityp as leading manufacturing names—to name but a few—that have thrown their backing behind the show. Still more are soon to be announced.
Speaking about the news, event director Chris Davies praised HP’s decision to support The Print Show, explaining that the manufacturer can now look forward to welcoming visitors from all areas of the industry.
“To secure the backing of one of the global print industry’s leading manufacturing brands is a massive boost for the whole team,” says Davies. He continues: “This will be the first time that HP will have its own stand at a UK commercial print show for many years and their presence at the event once again is testament to the strength, value, and professionalism of the exhibition.”
HP has an impressive arsenal of technology that it can martial, as it caters for high-end commercial print applications with its Indigo presses, while also having a large market share in the wide-format inkjet technology sector with its Page Wide, Scitex, Latex, and Design Jet presses. Each is targeted at a different segment of the market and remarkably the manufacturer has achieved either the largest, or a very substantial, market share in each.
