• Wednesday, 17 October 2007: 13.30-14.30Truth or Dare - All Presses will be Digital by 20’x’
Will all presses be digital, will colour be the prevailing standard, will variable data and transactional printing become the norm? Or is finishing holding back the digital market? What about digital substrates and the whole ‘click or no click’ argument?
Our panel will debate this hot topic and challenge Frank Romano’s latest prediction for the digital print industry “Digital print will account for half of all printing by 2015 and perhaps 65 per cent by 2020.”
Open forum to be held on the exhibit floor for all attendees.Opening times
