HP is set to host two dedicated customer events for vehicle wrapping and sustainability next month, in partnership with large-format print and vehicle graphics specialist PressOn.

The HP Wrap Camp will take place at the new PressOn Automotive specialist facility in Whitstable on 13 March, while the HP Sustainability Bootcamp will run on 14 March at the nearby PressOn site in Chatham, Kent.

The free to attend vehicle wrapping event will take place between 10 am and 4pm on 13 March and promises to offer attendees valuable insight into the vehicle wrapping market. The event will feature a day of learning, networking, and redefining the standards of vehicle wrapping with live demos.

Making use of the new wrapping facilities at PressOn Automotive, the event will help visitors learn about the entire wrapping process, from printing via laminating and cutting to applying graphics onto vehicles.

Paige Walton, founder and CEO of The Vehicle Wrapping Academy, will be carrying out live demonstrations of wrapping, offering further guidance and advice to visitors.

The second event will focus on the value of sustainability for modern wide-format print and signage businesses. Hosted by the Make it Happen signage consultancy, on behalf of HP and PressOn, the Sustainability Bootcamp is a workshop that will bring together corporations, companies, and individuals to learn, discuss and share knowledge and ideas.

It will run between 9.30am and 3.30pm on 14 March at PressOn’s premises in Chatham, with discounted rates for ISA/Fespa members.

The Sustainability Boot Camp is designed to inspire attendees with practical guidance and a raft of invaluable resources.

It also makes use of HP and PressOn’s network of contacts and promises to introduce the latest sustainability thinking, trends, sustainable products, materials, and services, in addition to highlighting how HP Latex print technology can support visitors with their long-term environmental goals.

Sarah Magee, marketing manager of the Make it Happen signage consultancy, and Steve Lister, formerly head of sustainability at HH Global and now founder of Rethink Retail, will both speak at the event about the importance of the environment and offer advice to attendees about how their businesses can become more sustainable.

Jane Rixon, business development manager of Large Format Production at HP, said: “We are delighted to be teaming up with our long-term partner PressOn to host these two special customer events.

“While the events are very different in subject matter, both are equally important in terms of the value they offer to visitors.

“Vehicle wrapping is one of the most exciting areas of the print industry, presenting print service providers with all manner of opportunities. The event will offer insight into the techniques and technologies within this market, as well as guidance on how to win new work.

“Meanwhile, sustainability has been a stand-out talking point for a number of years, and likely will be for many more to come; printers need to know what they can do to improve their environmental credentials. The HP Sustainability Bootcamp offers this and much more.”
