Considerable proportion of decision makers among the visitors of InPrint 2015
Visitors from 65 different countries came to InPrint in November 2015. The majority were of management and R&D level from the industrial printing sector, from traditional printing companies and from various manufacturing industries. The range of industrial fields included additive and advanced manufacturing, aeronautics and aerospace, appliance and equipment manufacturing, ceramics and glass, medical, rapid and regular prototyping, to name but a few. Visitors came from leading companies such as AIRBUS, BMW Group, Continental Automotive GmbH, Daimler AG, Hamberger Flooring GmbH, HUGO BOSS AG, Kraft Foods R&D Inc., Procter & Gamble, RUAG Aerospace GmbH and Villeroy & Boch.
In addition to the 3,400 InPrint visitors, a further 1,324 visitors of the co-located productronica show made use of the offer to visit both shows with one combined ticket. More than 60 conference sessions took place on the show floor, from panel discussions to Tech Talks, and offered additional opportunities for exchange and networking between exhibitors and visitors. Marcus Timson, founder and co-organiser of InPrint, is confident that the 2017 show will once again be an event of the highest standard: “InPrint targets print specialists from the entire industrial print supply chain who are specialised in functional and/or decorative printing and need to invest in this rapidly growing sector. In the exhibition survey for InPrint 2015, respondents who had attended both InPrint 2014 and 2015 believed the market and technology had evolved considerably and that the InPrint Show had played a key part in this development. This feedback is a great motivation for us to design InPrint 2017 as an even more inspiring industry exhibition and as the leading platform for this fast developing market“.
