Registration opens for InPrint USA’s Industrial Inkjet Conference May 1-2

Registration is now open for InPrint USA’s Industrial Inkjet Conference May 1-2, 2018 at the Palmer House Hilton in Chicago, Illinois. The conference is “the premier educational and networking forum for the industrial print community and will provide insights into the full spectrum of possibilities being realized through industrial inkjet technology within the manufacturing sector,” said organizers. The focus of this new conference will be to highlight trends, challenges, case studies and the latest technical innovations in industrial inkjet technology across functional, decorative and package printing applications. Attendees will hear from industry leaders who are developing the technology, or successfully implementing it, in their manufacturing processes. In addition, a welcome reception and tabletop exhibits will offer a unique opportunity for networking and community building with industry thought leaders and technical experts.

“Industrial inkjet technology is disrupting virtually every manufacturing industry it touches, offering a variety of benefits including more flexible production, late-stage customization, reduced inventories, design flexibility and much more,” said Donna Busse, Exhibition Manager for InPrint USA and the Industrial Inkjet Conference. “The technological advances, manufacturing needs and consumer demands in this industry are evolving so rapidly that we wanted to offer the industrial print community another chance to connect and learn from one another before the next InPrint USA show in April of 2019 in Louisville, Kentucky.”
