Show Review InPrint Munich 2017

review InPrint Munich 2017

At the third InPrint from 14 – 16 November 2017, some 3,000 specialised visitors from 63 countries met with 153 providers of cutting-edge technology, components and services for speciality, screen, digital and inkjet.

The focus of the 2017 show was on applications designed to be integrated into production lines and thus allowing mass customisation of a wide variety of industrial goods. 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.

A comprehensive conference programme provided insight into the latest developments and market potential of this emerging industry sector. In an official awards ceremony, prizes for innovative product developments and outstanding partnerships were awarded to four exhibiting companies. 

The next InPrint in Germany will take place from 12 – 14 November 2019 at the Munich Trade Fair Centre.
