Print Efficiently organisers have announced that the fifth running of the annual event will take place from 6-8 and 20-22 October 2015.
For the third consecutive year the collaborative event will be held at key partner Apex Digital Graphics’ Hemel Hempstead showroom.
Apex managing director Bob Usher said: “Print Efficiently has become an established part of the industry calendar, and has gone from strength to strength.
“Attendance at the 2014 show was up by around 50% on the previous year and all the key partners reported healthy sales. We are very much looking forward to hosting Print Efficiently 2015.”
As well as a variety of litho, CTP and digital equipment from Apex, visitors will be able to see a wide selection of finishing equipment from the show’s second key partner, Intelligent Finishing Systems (IFS).
IFS joint managing director Bryan Godwyn said: “We are very enthusiastic about Print Efficiently, which is a brilliant showcase for our products in a relaxed environment. It’s been great for us, and our customers like the format.”
The 2014 event was hailed the biggest yet with total sales of well over £1m reported. It covered most aspects of commercial print from web-to-print, MIS, colour measurement and consumables through to litho, digital and wide-format print and finishing.
Other partners at the 2014 event included Vpress, Shuttleworth, CyanX, TSS, Colourbyte, Renz, PDC, KAS Paper Systems and Premier Paper while daily seminars provided practical and impartial advice for commercial printers.
Event manager Jim Bower, who revealed organisers have already received enquiries from potential new partners, said: “Apex and IFS will definitely be participating next year, as will most of the 2014 partners, but we will make announcements on a confirmed line-up in due course.”
