Top 30 exhibitors reserve locations for Ipex
At Ipex 2014, to take place at London’s ExCeL International Exhibition and Conference Centre from March 26-April 02, 2014, the leading offset press manufacturer Heidelberg commits their presence. As per the Informa Print Group announcement, Heidelberg will be located in ExCeL’s largest hall—the Auditorium—matching the company’s footprint at Ipex 2010 and securing it the dominant position in the exhibition’s offset litho and ancillary sector.
“We are delighted with the ringing endorsement of Ipex 2014 from a major manufacturer such as Heidelberg,” says Trevor Crawford, director of the Informa Print Group, who adds that many other leading suppliers share Heidelberg’s enthusiasm. “We’ve had an extremely positive reaction from the top 30 exhibitors, all of whom have reserved space. They include other major press manufacturers, who will occupy substantial stands in the Capital hall located opposite the Auditorium. A registration process for all Ipex 2010 exhibitors is also under way, enabling them to secure their locations as soon as possible at what promises to be a game-changing Ipex. The level of confirmed support is so strong that we’ll be able to release floor plans early in the New Year.”
As further evidence of exhibitors’ interest Crawford cites the fact that Informa is currently hosting an average of three tours of the ExCeL venue each week. “To meet the unprecedented demand—and demonstrate ExCeL under ‘live conditions—we’ll also hold open days during January to coincide with major ExCeL events, starting with the London Boat Show on the 10th. These will be followed by further events in February, March and April, in the run-up to drupa.”
