Registrations Surge for Barcelona Ink Jet Conference

Mike Willis, Director, IMI Europe The IMI Europe Ink Jet Conference in Barcelona next week is looking again to be very successful, with registrations higher than last year and some great presentations reviewing the hot topics within the industry.  This is a high level event, focused on emerging ink jet technology and markets.

So why do we cover all types of ink jet and applications?  This approach might appear to lack direction.  But ink jet applications are emerging at different rates.  If you find out more about how other segments are developing, then you can have a better understanding of your own application and interests, what questions to ask, and what key indicators to look for.

The majority of our conference speakers are invited.  We look carefully at how ink jet is evolving, and look for the hot news and developments.  Our speakers are therefore chosen because they have new things to say.  We don't charge anyone to speak at our European Ink Jet Conference, their registration is complimentary.

This year we have some great presentations from companies such as Landa Digital, Hewlett-Packard, Heidelberg, Fujifilm Dimatix, FFIC, Konica Minolta and so on.  We have new technology announcements from STMicroelectronics, Alchemie and Thallosjet, and much more, in total 21 presentations.  The full list is at .

We also recognise that a key part of our events is the networking.  Two complimentary receptions are held with delicious canapés and local wines and beers.  It's an opportunity to meet senior industry contacts within a relaxed environment.

Over the past 3 years IMI Europe has worked hard to double its database, increase its web content, and engage with the industry through social media.  And our events have evolved over the years too.  But two things haven't changed.  The quality remains high, and the delegate fee has remained the same for over a decade.

So how do we know we are doing a good job?  Satisfaction ratings remain high year after year.  And with more registrations that in 2013 we must be doing something right.
