Graphic Printing Technologies (GPT) has announced that it is hosting 'PrintoberFest' - the October Festival of Signs, Display and Graphics Applications - at its office in Reading. The event will be held on 8th and 9th October and is an excellent opportunity to see the latest products, meet with industry and product experts and enjoy some unbeatable event-only offers.

Shaun Thompson, general manager of GPT, comments: “This year will be our biggest and best event yet, with particular emphasis on the launch of our massive MACtac range of consumables. There will be live demonstrations of vehicle wrapping, wallpaper applications and much more by MACtac’s own professionals. Also at the event will be KAPAtech’s range of lightweight foam boards, which perfectly complement our industrial print solution comprising the Mimaki JFX 200 and Esko Kongsberg XP digital cutter.”

In addition, the brand new Mimaki JV300 will be making one if it’s first UK appearances. “We encourage people to book early to make sure they have the time to see this exciting new product with our team. There will also be some unbelievable offers only available on orders placed on the day,” adds Thompson.

Other products on show include printers from Epson, Canon and more. GPT also expects to make some big new product announcements at the event.

Thompson concludes: “There will be lots of giveaways, massive discounts, media samples, additional warranties and – because it’s PrintoberFest – some sausages and beer!”
