The Print Show 2016 Reviews Are Good

BRISTOL, UK | The Print Show 2016, held October 11–13 at the NEC in Birmingham, UK, featured more than 140 exhibitors from across the industry, covering all areas of the production process. Organizers have confirmed that attendance figures were 5,916—with the biggest increase being seen on the middle day of the event. 

Event director Chris Davies says, “After the success of our inaugural event last year, we were extremely confident heading into this year’s show, and I’m really pleased with how it went. Not only were we able to bring in a number of new exhibitors but also record a significant increase in the number of visitors that attended the show. The feedback we’ve had from exhibitors has been really good, and I’m pleased to hear that so much business was done at the show, not only by those visiting but also between exhibitors.”

Davies adds that while the doors may have only just closed on another successful edition of The Print Show, there is plenty of interest in next year’s show, as well as new event SignLink Live that will run alongside The Print Show 2017. Both events will take place at the International Centre in Telford, UK, October 11–13. “The key focus of SignLink Live will see it place host to sign-making industry suppliers and manufacturers, the product and services of which span everything from built-up LED illuminated letters, through digital signage, to materials for wrapping buildings in graphics,” explains Davies, who will serve as event director of both shows The two shows will take the entire venue in Telford, which spans about 10,500 sq m (113,021 sq ft).

“We’ve already spoken with a lot of new and potential exhibitors about both The Print show 2017 and the debut SignLink Live, and the feedback we are getting is really positive,” says Davies. “There is a clear demand for a show like SignLink Live, and with an established brand like The Print Show to support it, we are very optimistic about where we can go with this new event.”
