Successful Ipex Open Day Previews Upcoming Show
Sarah Crumpler, UK marketing manager, Duplo International, noted: “The Ipex Open Day provided a great forum for networking and sharing ideas with both the Ipex team and other exhibitors. Duplo is looking forward to the event and contributing to the overall value that it presents to visitors.”
“I thought the Open Day was a great launch pad for Ipex,” said Eric Bell, director of marketing services, Goss International. “I spoke to a number of exhibitors who indicated that next year’s event provided them with the opportunity to start looking forward instead of back. The ExCeL looks to be a smart move too—a well-structured, modern venue that will serve Ipex well.”
Terri Winstanley, head of marketing and public relations, Intec Printing Solutions, summarized: “The Ipex Open Day reminded us of the focus and hard work Informa puts in to ensure Ipex is a great event. It is an important platform for us to promote and launch our new products in March, and it offers us the opportunity to meet with prospects from the United Kingdom and the international community—all under one roof. Overall it was a well organized and informative event that enabled us to meet with media partners and engage with suppliers, as well as offer us new incentives to ensure we have a strong exhibition.”
Mark Hinder, market development manager, Konica Minolta, added: “Personally I am really encouraged by all the hard work Ipex is putting in. The program to support a commercial printer is very well thought through, Cross Media Production will appeal to marketers and print service providers, and for me, I hope the industry can now see how the event is adapting to the changing landscape.”
“The event was run very professionally, and we came away happy that Informa is putting a huge effort into making Ipex 2014 a very relevant show for today's industry,” explained Miles Bentley, commercial director, Lumejet. “The Ipex team is working extremely hard to not only to drive footfall, but also to support the exhibitors. In fact, we are so confident that the show will be a great success that we have doubled our floor space."
