The Ipex organisers have revealed the final line-up of companies that will participate at the Ipex 2010 Media Summit, which will take place from 7th – 11th February at the ExCeL Centre in London. Canon Europe, C.P. Bourg, Domino Printing Sciences, Fujifilm Europe, Océ, Pitney Bowes, Red Tie, Ricoh and Xerox will give journalists from over 100 global publications an exclusive preview on what they will showcase at Ipex 2010.
In addition to presentations from exhibitors, the Ipex organisers will also update the media on the current shape of the event as well as new visitor features and initiatives. There will also be a presentation from Pira International about The Great Print Debates at Ipex 2010 - a panel debate that will tackle some of the most critical issues facing the print industry today. Nick Devine, the Print Coach, will be talking about the new seminar sessions at the Printers’ Profit Zone at Ipex 2010.
Comments Trevor Crawford, Ipex 2010 Event Director: “We’re delighted with the level of interest in the Summit from exhibitors and the tremendous commitment from the international media. In holding the event we’re able to further support our exhibitors in targeting the media with their key messages and providing the press with an exciting preview of what Ipex 2010 has in store.“
Jan Hol, Océ’s Senior Vice-President, Marketing Communications, says: "In light of the envisaged transaction between Océ and Canon, we expect strong interest from the media. Océ's presentation will focus on highlights of the envisaged deal and will provide an overview on our latest inkjet and toner based solution highlights for full colour high volume production printing. And we also anticipate making an important announcement on the day that will be of interest to visitors to Ipex!”
Graham Moore, Director of Business Development, Production Printing Business Group at Ricoh, says: “We see the Media Summit as a major platform from which we can reach the wider European production print marketplace with a demonstration of the forward strides Ricoh is making.”
Ronald van Hees, Director of Marketing at Pitney Bowes DMTi Europe, states: “We are enormously excited by Ipex and see February's Media Summit as an ideal opportunity to begin the buzz around Pitney Bowes' presence at the event.
"Pitney Bowes' Ipex 2010 focus is on the integration of print and mail, demonstrating how bringing these two functions together can create significant efficiencies and more optimised ways of working. Key to this integration is Pitney Bowes' new IntelliJet Printing System - a new production colour printing system for high-volume transactional mailers that is already gaining headlines across Europe and North America.
"With the addition of the IntelliJet Printing System to the Pitney Bowes portfolio, the Pitney Bowes stand will be the only place that Ipex visitors can see solutions that play across the entire full integrity end-to-end output management, production colour digital printing and Mailstream production process.
“The Ipex 2010 Media Summit will come at a crucial time in our preparations for Ipex, as it offers a great opportunity to network and to communicate our plans at the show to an international audience.”
Daniel Vande Poel, Managing Director at C.P. Bourg Group says: “We have chosen to participate in the Ipex International Media Summit as part of our core marketing strategy. Although the company has been a leading supplier of print finishing equipment for nearly 50 years, for much of that time many of its products have been sold under other labels through partners such as Xerox, HP Indigo, Kodak and Océ, Heidelberg and Canon. With thousands of users of Bourg equipment benefiting from the in-line solutions, C.P. Bourg Group is now adding focus on marketing its own brand through its global distribution network.”
“At the Ipex Media Summit we’ll outline Xerox’s plans for the show which includes technology advancements and enhancements, workflow and business development solutions – all geared to help graphic communications providers succeed in an ever-changing business environment,” says Eric Armour, President, Global Business Group at Xerox. “Our presentation will also feature customers from around the world discussing how they are growing business and generating new revenue opportunities with Xerox technology and services. Xerox’s all-digital stand promises to be an exciting place at Ipex 2010.”
