Nearly 250 exhibitors announced, around 40 newcomers, new inspiration and demo spaces and a conference program : C!Print is back, with a 2022 edition that promises to be extremely dynamic. Hexis, Konica Minolta and Roland DG are Gold Sponsors of the trade show this year. Epson, Euromedia, Realisaprint.com and Ricoh, Silver sponsors.
Transversal, C! Print 2022 will bring together manufacturers and distributors of printing machines and media, printing and visual communication service providers, prescribers and end customers. A reference for visual communication, outdoor and lighting communication, personalization, graphic industry and textile sectors, C!Print continues to open up to markets such as packaging and labels, but also industry and photography.
“Future is now”, its new watchword is both ambitious and optimistic : it reflects above all the strategy that has always been the one of the trade show, namely to support the development and transformation of the graphic industries sector.
Accelerated by the crisis, this transformation is now taking different forms. We are of course talking about the digital transformation of companies, but also about environmental transformation.
Discover, test, train, understand
At the heart of the event, the conferences will allow visitors to discover the full potential of the new technologies presented during the show, as well as new markets and new applications. Around fifty pitch meetings, case studies or plenary sessions will bring together no less than 80 experts. Masterclasses and guided tours will also be offered.
A new experiential space will be created, with the inauguration of the Café de la Personalization, where, in a “retail” atmosphere, new corners for the personalization of objects will be staged, in partnership with exhibitors from the show.
Another novelty for 2022 is the creation of a Software Village : a space exclusively dedicated to the subject of the digital transformation of businesses. About twenty exhibitors will present their solutions and share their expertise through a dedicated content program.
On the C! Sign – a space reserved for outdoor and lighting communication solutions (sign, display, digital media, billboards, etc.) – a gallery of sustainable innovations will be highlighted.
Finally, the C!Wrap, the show’s official wrapping contest, will once again create animation. For three days, serveral teams of professional installers will compete against each other by completely covering imposed elements with an original design.
