Informa partners with Picon and the NEC and establishes Joint Executive Committee to develop IPEX as a premier triennial print industry event in the UK

Informa has forged a partnership with Picon and the NEC (National Exhibition Centre) and created a joint executive committee to shape a new IPEX in 2017 at the NEC in Birmingham.

“We are fully committed to IPEX and are taking a whole new fresh and collaborative approach to designing the IPEX of the future,” says Peter Hall, managing director, Informa Exhibitions.

“We recognise that several aspects of IPEX 2014 were not successful, but we have learned from these and will consult closely with the market to ensure that IPEX 2017 is a UK-focussed, industry-driven event that appeals strongly to exhibitors and visitors.

“IPEX is the UK print industry’s flagship event with a superb heritage. I am confident that our considerable investment in the event, alongside our partnership with Picon and the NEC, and close collaboration with the UK industry as a whole, will help make IPEX 2017 the best showcase for the latest print technology and innovation.”

Originally planned for Spring 2018, IPEX will now take place every three years and will return to the NEC in Birmingham in Autumn 2017.
