This autumn there will be two new events in the ‘Inkjet’ calendar with the launch by the Inkjet Alliance of a new annual Inkjet Conference Programme in Shanghai, China under “IJA Summit Asia ” brand which will include the InPrint Asia Industrial Print Seminar and the IJA Industrial Digital Textile Printing Conference at InPrint 2016, Milano.
“It is the goal of IJA to undertake primary research and create events and networking opportunities which, over time, will significantly aid the development and growth of ink jet printing into new industrial applications, both within Asia and worldwide,” advises Stewart Partridge. “Our landmark event for the inkjet industry this year will be launched under the umbrella IJA Inkjet Summit Asia 2016, held in Shanghai from 24-27 October 2016. The dates have been carefully selected to allow seminar attendees to also visit major tradeshows such as ITMA Asia / CITME, ICE Asia and the All InPrint China exhibitions, where many new innovations from the inkjet industry will be on show.”
This new IJA Summit comprises a two-day conference on Industrial Inkjet Printing, a single day Digital Textile Forum, a one-day event Digital Printing for Packaging & Labelling, plus an inkjet technical training course. The event programme also includes a half-day industrial print briefing focusing on key market trends, under the title InPrint Asia Industrial Print Seminar, organised by FM Brooks as an introduction to their future plans in China and Asia. All seminars and training courses will be presented in English or Chinese, with simultaneous translation into the other language. Co-founder of InPrint Frazer Chesterman confirms the collaboration “We are really pleased to be able to work with Stewart and Aditya from IJA on this project and we feel confident that our combined knowledge will help to deliver a superb combined event for China”.
IJA co-director Aditya Chandavarkar reports “This Summit is just one of several IJA events scheduled. We are also organising an Industrial Digital Textile Conference programme alongside InPrint 2016 in Milano, and presenting ourselves at several conferences and events worldwide throughout the year, including TPF in Shanghai later this month”.
