Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge, the venue for Development Group

On 6th July in Cambridge, InPrint is hosting a Development Group Meeting for exhibitors and partners within the industrial print community. The networking dinner is sponsored by Diamond Dispersions.

The aim of the event is to provide a forum for discussion for growing industrial print.  InPrint Research conducted earlier in the year revealed some key issues that may prove to be impediments to growth. InPrint is committed to helping the market develop so have created a programme that is designed to give insight and inspiration for business growth.

Research that we have conducted has been both a qualitative and quantative. In essence this reveals a market with bullish growth potential. However that alone doesn't necessarily help a business to grow, especially when the core product is a disruptive technology which challenges traditional supply chains to change and take a risk.  The programme outlines change, growing an inkjet business, leadership and the customers perspective.

InPrint Development Group Meeting 6 July ‘Growing Industrial Print’

Building a business isn’t easy. Developing breakthrough technologies isn’t straightforward. Gaining new customers in new markets is tough.

On 6th July, InPrint is running a development group meeting designed to challenge thinking and inspire action.

The theme is ‘Growing Industrial Print’

This event takes place at Sidney Sussex College in Cambridge. It’s our first development group meeting in this ancient City which is also one of the key centres for inkjet development in the world.

On the programme we have some great speakers:

If you think creating new technology is a challenge, being an industrial inkjet developer/customer isn’t easy either. Surface decoration is expected to be the ‘next big thing for inkjet’. But why is this sector brimming with interest in inkjet yet seemingly lacking in inkjet action? Klaas is a key project manager at Tarkett, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of vinyl flooring and Klaas has the responsibility for integrating inkjet. In this session he explains the challenges of being an industrial inkjet customer.
