HP has announced that it will host two dedicated customer events for vehicle wrapping and sustainability in partnership with large-format print and vehicle graphics specialist PressOn.

The HP Wrap Camp will take place at the new PressOn facility in Whitstable on 13 March 2024, while the HP Sustainability Bootcamp will run on 14 March 2024 at the nearby PressOn Chatham site.

The HP Wrap Camp will offer attendees insight into the vibrant market of vehicle wrapping. The event will aim to help visitors learn about the entire wrapping process, from printing via laminating and cutting to applying graphics onto vehicles.

Paige Walton, founder and CEO of The Vehicle Wrapping Academy, will be in attendance and carrying out live demonstrations of wrapping, offering further guidance and advice to visitors.

The second event, in Chatham, will focus on the value of sustainability for the modern wide-format print and signage business. Hosted by the Make it Happen signage consultancy, on behalf of HP and PressOn, the Sustainability Bootcamp is a workshop that hopes to bring together corporations, companies and individuals to learn, discuss and share knowledge and ideas. In addition to highlighting how HP Latex print technology could support visitors with their long-term environmental goals.

Sarah Magee, the marketing manager of the Make it Happen signage consultancy, and Steve Lister, formerly head of sustainability at HH Global and now founder of Rethink Retail, will both speak at the event about the importance of the environment and offer advice to attendees about how their businesses can become more sustainable.

Jane Rixon, business development manager of large format production at HP spoke on the importance of teaming up with PressOn and other companies. She said: ‘We are delighted to be teaming up with our long-term partner PressOn to host these two special customer events.

‘While the events are very different in subject matter, both are equally important in terms of the value they offer to visitors.’
