During the last couple years, the trend to move printing into industrial, Functional and Speciality printing has been showed by many conferences from ESMA such as GlassPrint and AFIP but now more focus is put on the digital inkjet progress with the newest conference The Inkjet Conference.
Whether printing ceramics, textiles, electronics, laminates, packaging or graphics there is the application of a new disruptive technology. It is the aim of The Inkjet Conference™ to bring together all those involved for technical presentations and opportunities to exploit knowledge and technology across the market sector boundaries.
Delegates from the largest players in their industry with combined component purchasing power in excess of €100 million will have the opportunity to meet and assess the potential commercialisation opportunities presented by the research institutions and experimental start-up companies.
Presentation from the technology providers to the industry will highlight newly available products and the future direction there research is leading them. All presentations will need to book a table top at the exhibition for all commercial information exchange.
This two day conference is organised in two presentation tracks and a parallel running table top exhibition of 2.000 sqm.
Key industry leaders will be offered a 50m2 breakout room for the duration of the conference to facilitate more confidential discussions or more detailed presentations to invited groups of people. This is part of a special sponsoring package.
It is hoped this bringing together of various market sectors will stimulate a cross-fertilisation of ideas and an industry wide networking to stimulate the next growth on the path to digital manufacturing.
See below a list of suggested areas of interest and applications, however feel free to submit a presentation title from outside of this list.
