All disruptive technologies have a huge challenge to persuade conventional markets to try something new. Often, the resistance is due to a fear of the unknown and the challenge this presents to the established paradigm. Whatever the value presents an established market, these barriers to change can present the new technology business with ‘growing pains’.

This event is a direct response to this challenge and is designed to provide the industrial inkjet community with access to ideas, inspiration and people that may help them in their mission to grow their business.
