Birmingham, United Kingdom
Informa has forged a partnership with Picon and the NEC and created a Joint Executive Committee to shape a new IPEX in 2017 at the NEC in Birmingham.
Originally planned for Spring 2018, IPEX will now take place every three years and will return to the NEC in Birmingham in Autumn 2017. “There is a strong appetite from UK suppliers, manufacturers and visitors for a major event every three years which keeps pace with the speed of change in the industry, does not conflict with drupa and very much complements a variety of annual UK signage, packaging and print shows,” says Bettine Pellant, CEO, Picon. “Picon represents manufacturers and suppliers to the UK printing, papermaking and converting sectors and all will benefit from a vibrant IPEX.”
