Success Story

success story2

Driven by research and by technology, inkjet continues to change the manufacturing process. The widespread adoption of this technology was confirmed during the inaugural event in autumn 2014. Almost 300 attendees, mostly machinery manufacturers, brand owners and suppliers have gathered for the first time in Swissôtel Neuss/Düsseldorf for two days and two tracks of technical talks and hours of networking. The event attracted both industry and academic institutions who presented their research to the commercial market.

With 285 new visitors and almost 400 participants in total, The Inkjet Conference 2015 has by far broken the record of the previous edition. But it is not all about quantity, as the quality and content of 49 presentations have been widely commented as “inspirational” and “stimulating”. Delegates arrived from 25 countries, mainly European, but also from the USA, Japan, China and India. “It was an excellent mix of suppliers, integrators, customers, both experienced and newcomers”, evaluated Marc Graindourze from Agfa. “Attending The Inkjet Conference has been a great opportunity to get in touch with renowned experts in the field, as well as to gain access to the state-of-the-art and future perspectives of technology”, said Jose Planelles Aragó from Esmalglass-Itaca. Jochen Christiaens from Atlantic Zeiser summed up: “A fully packed, professional conference offering the opportunity to (re-)connect with key players in the industry and gather impressions on technological trends, the do’s and don’ts in inkjet and market development”.

As a huge number of delegates declares their participation for next year, the dates for TheIJC 2016 are already set: 5-6 October 2016 in Swissôtel Neuss. The organisers’ goals for the coming edition are ambitious but realistic with drupa as enabling partner at their side (drupa takes place in May-June 2016).
For every innovation, integration and imagination in inkjet : TheIJC 2016 is recognised as a “must attend” event in 2016.
