The six-day event is set to take place on 1, 2, 3 and 8, 9, 10 of October at Apex’s Hemel Hempstead showroom.

The first two days’ debates will focus on efficient finishing and winning business with a digital press, while debates on 3 and 8 October will target colour stabilisation across digital and litho printing. The final two debates will explore market opportunities for high volume inkjet and increasing profits through postpress and mailroom efficiency.

Each debate will be chaired by a panel made up of an independent specialist, a supplier’s technical representative and a printer that has used the technology.

The debates are in addition to a seminar programme scheduled on each morning of the event.

More than 23 brands will be displayed at the event and participants include Kodak, Lake Image Systems, Roland DG, Shuttleworth, VPress, Antalis, Cyanx and Meler.

Finishing equipment specialist Intelligent Finishing Systems (IFS) will debut Horizon’s new entry-level BQ280 perfect binder, which supercedes its best-selling BQ270 automated single clamp perfect binder.

Meanwhile KAS Paper systems will give demonstrations on the Mailmaster 465HS envelope inserter, Mailwrap polywrapper and Creasematic range of creasers.

Antalis will provide its Cocoon, Digigreen and Coala range of papers for print demonstrations, while Roland DG will showcase its wide format digital printer/cutters, the VersaCAMM VS-540 and SOLJET PRO4 XR-640.
