Visitor attractions include

Print Performance

IPEX is delighted to collaborate with the London College of Fashion as part of the show’s PRINT IN ACTION.

This is believed to be the first such project linking the print community with a major university and will result in a thrice-daily show on each of IPEX’s four days.

Output Display Gallery

This Gallery showcases finished print samples that demonstrate innovation, with the aim of inspiring, impressing, surprising and educating.

Winning entries from the Ad Design Challenge will be on display. These ads, designed by young printers, apprentices and students, take a fresh look at IPEX and the print industry generally. 


Networking is an important element of every event and at IPEX there will be plenty of opportunities to meet other print professionals in a relaxed and an informal environment.

There will also be a daily drinks reception at the IPEX Café Bar in the heart of the exhibition for exhibitors and visitors.
