TheIJC 2016 – Interest for inkjet pushes new market players to join
THE NETHERLANDS • drupa 2016 showed the direction of digital printing future, now the Inkjet Conference (TheIJC) invites all who look ahead to technological insights of inkjet engineering and chemistry, and who build the future. Supported by drupa, sponsored by MS Italy and organised by ESMA, the third edition of the world’s largest inkjet event returns to Düsseldorf/Neuss on 4-6 October 2016. So far, more than 20% of the tabletops have been booked by new exhibitors and 50% of delegates registered to date have never attended TheIJC before.
Dedicated to its educational objectives, TheIJC 2016 has been extended with six workshop sessions on 4 October 2016. The workshops are offered for free to first 100 delegates who register for the main event and the spaces are filling quickly with “Inkjet in Packaging” chaired by Sean Smyth being the most popular so far. Other sessions will provide the participants with practical knowhow about waveform tuning (chaired by Dr Steven Hoath from University of Cambridge and ImageXpert), colour management and print (Oliver Kammann and Fogra), functional fluids (David Chapman) and speciality effects in textiles (Prof Marc van Parys). A hands-on introduction to inkjet background and terminology including practical demonstrations will be given by Steve Knight and Johannes Renner from the iPrint Institute.

TheIJC 2016 will feature two tracks with 50 technical presentations, an exhibitor area of at least 70 tabletops and an exquisite networking dinner on the evening of 5 October 2016. Registration is available here
