Show Review InPrint 2015

review InPrint 2015

At the second InPrint from 10 – 12 November 2015, a total of 3,400 specialised visitors from 65 countries met about 150 providers of cutting-edge technology, components and services for speciality, screen, digital, inkjet and 3D. Compared to the InPrint premiere show in 2014, the number of visitors and exhibitors increased by one third.

The focus of this year’s show was on the three fields of application functional, decorative and packaging printing on 5,500 net square metres. The exhibitor stands featured live demonstrations as well as technological innovation across a diverse range of applications.

During the three show days, there was plenty of opportunity for industry experts to gather information on state-of-the art printing technologies in industrial manufacturing and establish new business relations to commonly create customised systematic solutions.

The InPrint Conference with over 60 sessions on two stages gathered crowds of visitors. The Italian company Kuei won the Great Innovations Award for their haptic ink “Haptink”.

The next InPrint in Germany will take place from 14 – 16 November 2017 at the Munich Trade Fair Centre.

Exhibitor Feedback

We have seen a significant increase in lead numbers since the previous show. A diverse range of companies and a large variety of industry sectors have come through, and the quality of the visitors at our stand was high. At InPrint, we see potential customers that we see nowhere else.
Gary Barnes, Marketing Manager Industrial Inkjet Fujifilm Speciality Ink Systems Ltd

At InPrint 2015 in Munich, we noticed a considerable increase in the number of high-level talks and new business contacts compared to the year before. … The InPrint show has become a valuable platform with respect to an exchange of experiences and know-how between visitors and exhibitors. This show allows us not only to communicate our practical experiences and application results, but also to get new inspiration and ideas from visitors at the same time.
Roberto Zinser, Channel Manager Wide Format Direct Sales Canon Germany GmbH

At InPrint 2015, we saw a continuation at a higher level of InPrint 2014, which showed diversified leads coming across many industries. This is what makes InPrint so special. The people visiting us came with specific production challenges and improvements in mind... The show was of a higher quality and more complete with new people looking at new industrial solutions from the manufacturing world, suggesting to us at Marabu that the target of the show was being achieved.
Friedrich Goldner, Director New Business Development Marabu GmbH & Co. KG

InPrint has helped us to crystallise our industrial print offering and has raised our profile generally... Through the show we have achieved new work and we have opened up new discussions about industrial printing.
Ciara McGahey, Account Manager New Business Development Inca Genius

We think we see different visitors than at other shows we go to because InPrint attracts people from the industry – an industry which is not the graphic arts industry … and that is about integrating and using technologies of different players in the same industrial stream, so we get much more of a partnership relationship here, rather than a buy-sell relationship.
Paul Adriaensen, Press & Public Relations Manager Agfa Graphics N.V.

The graphic print industry is a big focal point in our product portfolio. And we, of course, want to gain more ground with these products in the industrial sector, in print applications for example in the automotive industry. And InPrint is a perfect platform to connect these two areas of application.
Peter Hohl, Product Manager Zünd Systemtechnik AG

InPrint is a suitable platform to connect with our industrial customers who are looking for print technology solutions for industrial production processes. And based on our experience, we can only find this audience, and this quality of visitors, at InPrint.
Andreas Lettner, General Manager Marketing Mimaki Deutschland GmbH

We recieved a lot of interest at InPrint here in Munich. We had a very successful show with many new contacts.
Ivar Emde, Business Development Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG
