C!Print Madrid 2016: bringing the community together, opening up to markets

C!Print Madrid, the pre-eminent event in the sector of digital printing, customisation and the creative industries, reveals the date for its third edition, on 4-6 October in the Pabellón de Cristal of Casa de Campo, and announces important news for the event, such as the opening of The Platform.

The technological trade show that unites the entire profession

C!Print Madrid has been very highly valued since its first edition given that it brings together all the links in the visual communications market chain within a single event. That is to say, the trade show is attended by traditional actors: manufacturers of printing and finishing equipment, distributors of materials and consumables and service providers, as well as prescribers, the people responsible for conceiving and developing printing projects: creators, communication and retail marketing agencies, architects, designers and interior designers.

It is therefore a multidisciplinary trade show, since digital printing is at the heart of all visual communication, decoration, design, packaging and photographic processes. It is also – most importantly – vertical, since all of the actors in the process are involved, from the manufacturer to the end customer.

10,691 unique visitors = 10,691 business opportunities

In 2015, 10,691 ultra-qualified, unique visitors passed through the trade show over the three days, of which 6635 were companies from all over Spain – a statistic that reinforces the distinction and importance of C!Print in the market for all actors in the sector.
C!Print’s objective is to strengthen dialogue and create business between the various market representatives, via concrete initiatives that address their real business problems.

Plug&Play, the space for experimentation

The Plug&Play space aims to demonstrate the future of digital printing in decoration, branding, creative communication and design. For this purpose, it has a customisation workshop, where the customisation of items using digital technologies will be demonstrated live; an applications showroom, where large-format customisation solutions for spaces may be seen, touched, and exhibited; and a training centre, where, through workshops, round tables, success stories and guided tours, all led by market experts, the intention is to stimulate the community.

The Platform, the first event for providers of communication solutions

To complement its distinctiveness, this year C!Print Madrid is also introducing The Platform, a sector of C!Print that will be a meeting point between prescribers (architects, designers, communication agencies, etc.) and service providers (of digital, textile and screen printing, labelling and customisation), who will be able to carry out communication campaigns and marketing projects. This space is designed to serve as an exchange of ideas and proposals, to find the best solutions for real campaigns and projects.
The Platform Image and Communication is the first event dedicated to creative printers regardless of their speciality: retail, visual communication, interior design, interior decoration, scenography, branding, etc.

Fespa Spain

As a leading market representative, FESPA SPAIN, the key Spanish association for professionals in digital and screen printing, is once again supporting C!Print Madrid and accompanying it through the changes that the market is experiencing. In particular, in 2016, FESPA supported the launch of The Platform.
