BIRMINGHAM, UK | Ipex 2010, held May 18-25 at Birmingham's NEC, “demonstrated that the printing industry is back in business,” according to Prof. Frank Romano, international analyst and Ipex “Champion in Print.”
The show, owned by IIR Exhibitions, featured more than 1,000 exhibiting companies from 40 countries. Event director Trevor Crawford says visitor numbers were roughly in line with the last show in 2006, despite considerable industry consolidation.

Awards; Xplor/BAPC seminars; the Digital AdLab meeting; and the EDP awards.
