The award- winning PrintWeekLive! returns for its second year on 7-8 March at the Wasps Arena, Coventry. Organised by MA Exhibitions, the free to attend exhibition opens its doors to thousands of printing professionals from across the UK and abroad looking for brand new ideas and methodologies to transform their business.

The print industry’s requirements are evolving. As well as driving efficiencies in the print room, companies need to enhance the capabilities of customers to go beyond the printed page. PrintWeekLive! provides the perfect opportunity for visitors to discover the latest and most advanced technologies, learn how to solve complex problems with a variety of workshops and hear from a large range of leading industry speakers in a rolling programme of seminar and workshop sessions across the two-day event.

Headline sponsors for 2018 are Close Brothers, Heidelberg, Premier paper group, Tharsten and Xerox and exhibitors include Canon, Infigo Software, Transeo Media, and Vivid Laminating Technologies who are there to enhance visitors’ knowledge in each sector as well as provide the opportunity to test new products for themselves before purchasing. Attended by senior decision makers from directors to business owners, PrintWeekLive! ensures visitors leave full of inspiration and new ideas to initiate the next stage of growth for business performance.

Referring to the 2017 exhibition, Head of marketing at Xerox, Kevin O’Donnell, stated, “From our perspective, if the goal of the event was to inspire, initiate and innovate, then certainly over the two days we ticked that box based on the conversations we had. We embraced the ethos of the show – the visitors to our stand had too, we had some great conversations, and I think the marriage of an exhibition with a very strong conference and workshop programme gave visitors the ability to not just to see, but to also hear and discuss opportunities.”

Exhibitors range from printers, manufacturers, print services and service providers displaying a wide range of kit and applications. Many exhibitors will be holding workshop sessions on their stands demonstrating how the latest technologies can be applied to business as well as the latest business thinking and different approaches that can be taken to benefit business as well as advice on where the market is headed and where the key investment opportunities lie.

In addition to this, PrintWeekLive! hosts an impressive range of conference sessions and special features including Ask the Expert and Power 100, and the programmes are to be released shortly ahead of the event and will be posted on the PrintWeekLive! website.

The inaugural PrintWeekLive! in 2017 was a huge success and this year is looking to be even bigger and better, uniting the entire print industry for two full days of inspiration putting the power back into print.
