InPrint Conference Presents Inkjet Insights

CHICAGO, IL | Organizer Mack Brooks says the InPrint Industrial Inkjet Conference, held May 1–2 at the Palmer House Hilton in Chicago, was a success and provided the industrial print community with unique, thought-leading insights on adopting digital technologies to develop new business opportunities.

Registrants heard from industry thought leaders on the successes and challenges of adopting digital print. Focusing on packaging, decorative, and functional print applications, presenters shared their expertise highlighting trends, case studies, and the latest technical innovations in industrial inkjet.

“The content of the InPrint Conference was focused on where the industrial inkjet market is headed and how manufacturers can implement the technology into their production to drive business growth,” says Kevin Jackson, InPrint USA exhibition manager. “For example, Heidelberg presented a case study about its customer Ritzi Automotive, who is successfully using inkjet applications. Implementation has its challenges, but our goal at InPrint is to help the manufacturing community learn from each other and provide access to the information and technology they need to succeed in their business goals.”

Mark Hanley, president, I.T. Strategies, delivered the keynote presentation, entitled “Rebirth of Industrial Inkjet.” Hanley shared his projections for realistic market development potential across all market segments—decorative, functional, and packaging. Each sector was examined in terms of the opportunities for growth and the introduction of new print technology.

A panel presented the general session, “Merger & Acquisition Activity in the North American Industrial Inkjet Market,” sharing the latest data and market trends related to M&A activity in the industrial inkjet industry, as well as their experiences and learned best practices in M&A strategy, execution, and integration for their organizations.

InfoTrends hosted the closing keynote session, “Growing your Inkjet Printing Business.” The addressed covered what companies need to consider as they embark on adopting digital technologies in their operations, urging attendees to consider not only the technology itself but rather how integrating new digital technology forces a business to rethink production and business processes to meet evolving client demands.

Presentations are available for download on the InPrint USA Conference website.

The next InPrint USA show, co-located with ICE USA, the International Converting Exhibition, will be held in Louisville, KY, April 9–11, 2019.
