The show covered 8,500 sq m of net space, with just under 300 exhibitors, larger by 10% than the last edition. Tarsus says the event also recorded the highest ever onsite level of space rebooking for 2015.

The show floor featured more than 70 running machines. New products included the Truepress Jet L350UV digital label press from Screen USA, the TurnLock Laminating System from Avery Dennison, and a new turret rewinder with automatic core take-off from Brotech. A M3 digital flexo press from Nuova GIDUE drew crowds for its demonstrations.

A two-day conference program ran alongside the exhibition and featured six well-attended sessions. Topics included digital printing, beverage labeling, and the importance of innovation.
