IMI Europe announces new Market Reports Live event covering key digital printing applications

Cambridge, 10th September 2015: IMI Europe, the leading inkjet conference & course provider, announces a new event: Market Reports Live to take place in Amsterdam, 1- 2 December 2015.

MARKET REPORTS LIVE offers three half-day market and technology briefings on emerging applications which include; 3D Printing IDTechEx, Digital Textile Printing - WTiN and Digital Commercial Printing – IT Strategies. Each session offers market and technology forecasts from leading industry analysts, plus the opportunity to ask questions.

This series of sessions is designed for individuals who are responsible for business intelligence and forecasting for their company as well as those who track developments in the emerging application areas of inkjet.

Mike Willis, Managing Director of IMI Europe comments: “You may already do the rounds of trade shows and events and have a dialogue with contacts in each of these industries. But now, we offer the opportunity to hear what the top analysts for each of these three hot applications believe about the prospects for ink jet technology.”

3D Printing – Rachel Gordon, Technology Analyst, IDTechEx

Tuesday 1 December - 09:00-13:00
Some say that the media attention to 3D printing far exceeds commercial activity. Is that true? After all, 3D printing has been around for 25 years. What is driving the market and which are the front-running technologies? Where is 3D printing being used? These are just some of the questions that Rachel will be addressing during this Market Reports Live session.

Digital Textile Printing – James Rankin, Market Intelligence Analyst and John Scrimshaw, Editor, WTiN

Tuesday 1 December - 14:00-18:00
Digital textile printing is considered by many to be 'the next big thing' and with the ITMA trade show in November there will be plenty of new announcements. But as always, commercial success doesn't necessarily follow from new machine launches. What market penetration of digital printing in the textile industry is there really? How well are user needs being satisfied? Come and find out from WTiN experts James and John!

Digital Commercial Printing - Marco Boer, Vice - President, IT Strategies

Wednesday 2 December - 09:00-13:00
We've already had two “Inkjet Drupas” and with the next event coming up in May 2016 everyone wants to know "are we there yet?" Commercial printing is one of the most challenging industries from many points of view - print quality, speed and cost - to name just three. How are the new intermediate transfer inkjet processes likely to change the situation? How strong a challenger is liquid EP? Marco Boer will explain all and give his expert opinion.
