The debut of Print4All is approaching: on the coming May 29 the new fair will open its doors at Fiera Milano and for the following four days (until June 1st) – among exhibitors and visitors – it will host the protagonists of the worlds of graphic arts, converting and the specialized press at national and international level. The stands of the over 350 exhibitors will be the showcase for the latest technological and applicative innovations – distributed between halls 18 and 20 of Fiera Milano. But it will be the entire supply chain that will find ideas and elements of strong interest in the event, which immediately characterized itself as a ‘a house of contents’, ie a moment in which all operators in the reference sectors – from print service providers to suppliers of materials and services, from designers to brand owners and large retail – will be able to find out about and discuss market and demand trends, exchange opinions and find ideas and inspirations to revamp strategies and offers.
What are the contents that might interest you? Discover the Intensive Seminar program, designed to a slender format – lasting 30 minutes – and with a schedule in which the macro-themes will be repeated over the four days to allow visitors to combine the tour of the exhibition area with the appointments offering professional updates. For the specialist press, Bob Leahey, associate director of Keypoint Intelligence, will present the results of an inquiry – carried out in 2018 by Keypoint Intelligence and Stratego Group – on commercial printers, packaging converters and printers of signs and displays made by partners. What are the challenges facing print service providers? How do they diversify production and what strategies are they adopting? What do they say about the future? All this information and statistics is discussed by Leahey. And if you are interested in learning about the latest developments in finishing, the appointment is with Eli Gringer, founder of Scodix, who will expound on the opportunities offered by the latest technology. And yet again, the cycle of meetings “The Future of…” will focus on trends and scenarios in the making, in areas such as the future of printing in its various forms (also in relation to the new requirements of Industry 4.0), product and process innovation, the evolution of the customer experience, the future of the global market.
PrintMat, a must see!
