The IPIA’s Recognising Excellence Expo is set to take place on 2 December in Stratford-Upon-Avon, with the organisation hoping that it will stimulate the UK’s print economy. 

More than 20 companies will be exhibiting at the event, which will see printers meet and network with a range of professional print buyers.

‘This is a real a chance for printers to not only generate new print volumes for their business by meeting buyers at the Networking Lunch, but also bring themselves up to date with new technology and media at the Expo that could make a significant difference to their efficiency, productivity and the value they can deliver to customers,’ explained the IPIA’s general manager, Brendan Perring.

‘Whether you can only come to the Expo and Networking Lunch, or are able to stay on for the Gala Dinner, we can promise you it will be a very valuable use of your time. I would urge anyone who hasn’t yet booked to do so, sooner rather than later, to avoid disappointment.

‘Traditionally the IPIA participates in or hosts some ten business events a year, but this is our first in-person event for almost two years. Having spoken to many members, it’s fair to say we’ve all missed the human interaction and sense of community and sociability that emanates from our industry. I think that is why this event is proving so popular with printers and suppliers.’

Mr Perring concluded, ‘To remain competitive, you need to understand how technology and the market is evolving, while continuously generating a new pipeline of customers. This event will give printers the chance to do both.’

In addition to the daytime Networking Lunch and Expo, there will be a gala dinner taking place in the evening. Tickets are available now from the IPIA.
