IPEX ExCel London“Addressing the current issues the print industry faces today, Ipex will also provide an eclectic platform to discover first-hand the solutions required to respond positively to the changing marketplace and ensure a long term, profitable future,” says Crawford.

According to Crawford, the current Ipex footprint covers the entire print production workflow, from concept right through to the finished product. “With manufacturers and suppliers from the UK and countries from across the globe – notably from Belgium, China, France, Germany, India, Japan, The Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland and the USA – there will be a host of new launches from the diverse range of exhibitors, some of who will be participating at Ipex for the very first time.”
