TheIJC 2017 The Ink Jet Conference
24. October 2017 - 25. October 2017
The IJC (The Inkjet Conference) will place on Oct. 24-25, 2017 in Swissôtel Düsseldorf, Germany
An increased number of new companies have already confirmed and revealed their presentation titles raising expectations of a record-breaking year.
Entering its fourth edition, TheIJC is organized by ESMA with ongoing support of drupa and sponsorship of MS Printing. The organizers praise the educational and match making aspects of the event: “This conference has become a game changer for the industrial inkjet community. It is a platform where the finest development companies, big players and aspiring start-ups initiate projects for all possible market applications. The two-day, two-track format generates real business opportunities, as repeatedly confirmed by participants since the very first edition of TheIJC,” said Peter Buttiens, CEO of ESMA.
“Since 2014 TheIJC provides a venue for those who build the future – of inkjet engineering and inkjet chemistry – but also the future of manufacturing in general. Future trends are notoriously difficult to predict but following core technology developments allows us to envision the equipment of tomorrow. This year at the conference we see an increased networked community. Those that are building the future do not do so in isolation – whether inks, printheads, data path software or integration, we work with technology partners, and the meeting point where we present our latest technology is TheIJC,” added Steve Knight, co-founder of the conference.
As the meeting point of the industry, TheIJC attracts hundreds of attendees coming from all over the world. For two days, OEMs, brands, engineers, chemists, researchers and all technology users gather together with the suppliers – printhead manufacturers, ink producers, software and hardware designers. By the time of this release, 45 companies have already booked a tabletop in the “networking arena.”
Following on the successful format of the previous years, TheIJC offers 25 hours of technical talks, which address topics ranging from printheads and ink improvements to inkjet in packaging, textiles and pharmaceuticals. Prof Simon Gaisford from University College London will talk about inkjet printing for control of pharmaceutical polymorphism and Prof Marc Van Parys (TexZeppelin, UC Ghent) will explain how to make digital technologies accessible for textile SMEs. Dr Kerstin Gläser will present Hahn-Schickard Society’s research of inkjet and aerosol jet in the field of micro technology.
Presenting for the first time at the conference, HP Printhead Division will provide details of their thermal DOD technology for industrial print.
TheIJC 2017 will feature 50 presentations, an exhibition of 70 tabletops and an expected total of more than 400 attendees. Last tabletop slots are still available – for more information please write to firstname.lastname@example.org . Until April 30, 2017, early-bird rates apply.
