No one wants Drupa switch, but everyone will play ball

Considering the fact that people have been talking about Drupa mulling a move to a three-year cycle in hushed tones for months, the ire it seems to have raised among exhibitors is surprising.

It's only fair that those who break the rules foot the bill

It is recognised that good health and safety is good business, but some firms may seek to gain a short-term competitive advantage by cutting corners and putting workers and the public at risk.

Proposals would benefit UK but may get lost in red tape

The recommendations set out in the Beecroft report would, broadly, be good for UK businesses. However, implementation of the most controversial employment reforms is likely to get tangled up in Coalition debate; they may not see the light of day during...

Beecroft's proposals won't help business, finance will

The bonfire of employment law proposed in the Beecroft Report is unlikely to be realised to anything like the extent its author has envisaged. For one thing, relations within the Coalition are strained enough as it is without heaping more pressure on in the form of legislation that is unthinkable to many Lib Dems, particularly in the wake of the 'granny tax' fiasco.

Buy presses now, or wait for the next generation?

What is more important: the future or the present? At Drupa 2012, the answer depends on who you're talking to and where they are in their product development cycle.

Show's success is testament to digital's growing impact

Four days were enough to beat all expectations and change the impression of Fespa Digital 2012 from 'not bad for a Drupa year' to 'great show with huge projection'. With the final attendance figures surpassing the target, all were easily exceeded.

A boost in UK morale is the only safe bet of the Games

This year is set to be full of big events that should boost morale - and, hopefully, business. From the Jubilee to the Olympics, there will be some welcome news amid the economic gloom.

Regs must change to permit public-private co-operation

Before we look at whether public sector printers should be able to compete for external work, there is a myth which needs to be addressed: that in-plant print units are subsidised by the local authority. In many cases, quite the opposite is true, with in-plant units making contributions towards the running of the council. On the whole, in-plant print units are self-funding and must show a return on investment.
