Kings visit Print Week Live!
This week Kings headed to Coventry for Print Week Live 2018, a two-day exhibition to 'Inspire, Innovate, Initiate!' the leading names in the print industry. On Wednesday 7th and Thursday 8th March, printers, buyers and vendors gathered at the Ricoh Arena to take part in expert-led workshops and conferences to marvel at the latest innovative software and equipment on the market.
Arriving at Print Week Live!
It was clear throughout the two-day show that the principal aim of the eponymously named event was to inspire and provoke change in the industry. Speakers from Xerox, Hobs Group, Solopress, Williams Lea Tag and Harler (to name just a few) passionately discussed the future of the print industry and how as an industry we can incorporate and embrace the digital era, inspire young people whilst continuing to develop creative ways of producing powerful print products.
On day one, Douglas Gibson from Infigo Software gave an engaging talk emphasising the importance of print in today's digital world. While there is an undeniable increase in online software and its presence, Gibson argued that printing is still able to engage the senses and stays around longer than digital content. Five to ten years ago, common opinion was that print was a dying industry but today, it is still just as strong as ever.

We were also able to sit and listen to Kevin O'Donnell, Head of Marketing at Xerox, discuss how to raise revenue by adding value through enhancements and embellishments to your print, on the second day of the event. The workshop focused on ways in which we can go the extra mile when it comes to adding value and function to standard CMYK print.

Kings also had the opportunity to explore the show floor during both days of the event, where we got a glimpse of kit including the Océ Colorado, Epson Sure Colour S80600 and SC-P10000 and Xerox Versant Press.
