CIP4’s Print Automation Live, CIPPI Awards Programs to be Features at Drupa

CIP4 will publish production workflow descriptions and illustrations for each “Print Automation Live” site in their drupa edition of Production Automation News. Free copies of the CIP4 Production Automation News will be available at all entrances to halls 7.0 and 7.a. at the show, and will provide attendees with valuable information on where and when to attend the “Print Automation Live” demonstrations that best fit their interests.

CIPPI Awards Program
Another CIP4 feature at the drupa innovation park will be the 2012 CIP4 International Print Production Innovation (CIPPI) awards. The CIPPI Awards recognize printers who have implemented ground-breaking, innovative and highly productive print automation systems. Applicants are required to provide detailed case studies reviewed by an independent panel of five international judges.

“The dip is about innovation, and having the CIPPI awards presentation live on the dip main stage, is a great way to recognize that innovation comes from printers, and not just from vendors of systems and software,” said dip Manager, Sandra Winter of Winter Consulting. “Previous CIPPI Award case studies have demonstrated printer creativity, and we look forward to hearing what this year’s winners have achieved.”

The CIPPI Awards are presented to applicant printers with recognition to their supporting vendors. The CIPPI Awards program and presentation will be held on Sunday, May 6th at the dip Main Stage in hall 7.0 immediately following the show close, from 17:00 to 19:00 hours. Printers and vendors interested in submitting an application for the 2012 CIPPI Awards can find application forms, example case studies from previous years’ events, and rules and guidelines at CIPPI Award applications for 2012 must be submitted to CIP4 by Friday, Feb. 17, 2012.
