Printed Interior Decoration (updated May 25, 2018)

5. June 2018 - 6. June 2018

Printed Interior Decoration (PID) conference returns to Düsseldorf, Germany on 5-6 June 5 – 6, 2018 at Radisson Blue Hotel, to feature a mixture of technical presentations from suppliers and inspirational talks by interior designers. Participants will witness the latest printing technologies for Home Textiles, Wallpapers, Glass Walls, Laminated Floorings, Wooden Panels, Carpets, Building and Mobile Interiors

With Digital Inkjet printing, the solutions to print on different materials such as glass, textile, plastics and ceramics open new worlds of creative design. There are no longer limitations. During the conference, all aspects of printing on different materials will be handled with all their own specifications and applications.

A growing and lucrative market

The world of building and decoration has many specifications in regards to flaw retardant, fire resistance, rub and light fastness, as well as all aspects of ecology and durability. The new solutions help to minimise waste, print on demand solution, small to large series and cost and time reduction…

There is a growing need for personalisation, mass customisation in the design of bars, hotels, offices, lobbies and homes. The concept of digital printing is helping to bring solutions to the market at attractive prices. The new wave of design demands different solutions which now can be offered at the right price, place and timing.

The knowledge of applications – from textiles for curtains, wallpaper, upholstery, bed linen and carpets, as well as with glass for windows, interior doors, wall, backgrounds and shower walls – they all are possible to be decorated with the right specifications. Other areas such as ceramics, tiles, flooring, laminated floor or kitchen doors… all these items can be personalised and adapted to the rest of the interior design for commercial or home interior design.

Who should attend?

The conference aims at stand builders, shop fitters, hotel decorators, store designers, designers of home textiles, decoration and furniture, interior decorators, designers of offices, restaurants, bars, public places and retail shops. All large format printers looking for new challenges within the interior (and exterior) decoration market or already involved in design and decoration on wood, glass, carpet and textiles but also several other materials such as leather, plastics, etc.

On the MAIN CONFERENCE TRACK technology suppliers present the latest developments in printing systems, ink formulation, colour management, prepress and post-treatment. On the CREATIVE TRACK, technology users – printers, designers and architects, present case studies, specific projects and applications

8 presentations on the technical track and 10 more on the creative track provide for an intense learning and networking agenda during the 2nd edition of the Printed Interior Decoration (PID) conference which takes place on June 5-6, 2018 at the Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel in Düsseldorf, Germany. Participants will witness the latest printing technologies for home textiles, wallpapers, laminated floorings, wooden panels, carpets, building and mobile interiors.

“Large format printing and industrial inkjet in general have been increasingly stimulating the trend of developing printed products for interior decoration, as well as personalisation of design items. The trend has expanded in the professional environment and found its way into shops, bars, hotels, offices and other commercial areas. It employs digital printing technology for creating series of unique designs on wood, glass, textiles and other materials,” says Peter Buttiens, CEO of ESMA (European Specialist Printing Manufacturers Association), conference organiser. “On one hand, it is driven by economical aspects resulting in imitation of expensive materials such as exotic wood types or wall decoration techniques such as frescos and murals. On the other hand, we witness a returning demand for the use of large scale pictures as wallpaper or ceiling covers, only now they can be produced in the finest quality, meeting visual expectations, light fastness requirements and the overall end user demands. In that context, we invite both technology suppliers, as well as printers, interior designers, shop fitters and architects to PID 2018.”

Printed Interior Decoration will discuss topics ranging from substrates, workflow and pre-press, through printing systems, inks and finishing, to regulations and case studies, not only from suppliers but all involved in the creative process, including designers and print service providers. Some of the papers submitted for the main conference track include:

  • “Transforming spaces into areas for living” by Xavier Jouvet from Antalis
  • “Fascinating designs with additive colour mixing” by Dr Marc Hunger from Merck Group
  • “Wallpaper, aluminium, HPL – standard wide-format printers for bespoke solutions” by Stefan Höfs from Roland DG
  • “The usage of inkjet printing for interior decoration” by Dr Dieter Holzinger from Tiger Coatings
  • “Managing colour deviations in the decorating industry” by Jan Seguda from ColorGATE
  • “How to solve the conflicts between human perception and numeric spectral values by multispectral technology” by Michael Nothelfer from Caddon.
