The Inkjet Conference 2015 announces dates and conference details

20150513 TheInkjetConferenceLeuven, 13th May 2015 – With drupa as enabling partner, MS Printing as sponsor and ESMA as organiser, The Inkjet Conference returns to take place on 7th and 8th October 2015 in Swissôtel Neuss/Düsseldorf, Germany. Building on last year’s success the event offers over 20 hours of industrial presentations and technical lectures on the newest developments in inkjet engineering and inkjet chemistry.

“Whilst the inkjet printhead is at the heart of any system, system performance and productivity are affected by the other components that go into building the digital print process. The Inkjet Conference covers all aspects: printheads, inks and ink chemistry, data path electronics and imaging software, fluid systems and precision mechanics. We welcome both inkjet equipment manufacturers, consumer brand owners and other representatives of the markets affected by the shift to digital production wishing to understand the core technology.” – Steve Knight, owner of Digital Technologies Direct and co-founder of TheIJC.

TheIJC.2015 is the knowledge hub of the industry. By the time of this release 38 speakers confirmed their attendance – all acknowledged experts in their fields. Likewise the Scientific Board is drawn from a wide range of backgrounds and industries and is at the forefront of research into inkjet and its applications. As observed during the 2014 edition, most of the delegates also possess a high level of expertise in inkjet integration or market specific applications. Both exhibitors and visitors from last year emphasised the positive atmosphere and a sociable but professional networking environment during the conference. As a two-day two track event held in Swissôtel Neuss/Düsseldorf, TheIJC 2015 enables easy access to everybody and welcomes newcomers and old friends alike.

“The interesting part of the conference is the balanced mix with some outstanding academic speakers in the field of inkjet. This is triggering the commercial companies to make sure that they use the latest developments and transform them in market ready solutions. Therefore, TheIJC2015 has a Scientific Board which helps to guide the process of speaker selection in the right direction.” – Peter Buttiens, CEO of ESMA.

The biggest European conference of its kind will address topics ranging from printheads and ink improvements, integration knowhow, new software solutions enabling digital manufacturing, to recent market applications in packaging, laminates, wall covering and textiles.
