    There are three key pillars that underpin why it is worth a day out of your business to attend The Print Show.

    It will help to boost your profits, save you time, and ultimately help grow your bottom line.


    One of the most important parts of any show is its special features. The Print Show will be offering showcases of historic printing equipment, a broad seminar program, software training, in-house bar, and the amazing 'Printers' Bazaar'.


    If you supply to the UK print industry and want to get your business in front of thousands of quality visitors that are directly relevant to your products and services, this is the show for you. The Print Show in its very first year saw 5,384 visitors cross its doors.


    They came, they saw, and they signed on the dotted line. The Print Show's founding instalment in 2015 was widely heralded as a 'breath of fresh air' for the UK commercial print industry as it mixed the right exhibitors, visitors, and special educational content to achieve a highly successful event.

    One of the most important trends witnessed in 2015 was that these visitors had come ready to invest in new equipment, products, and services. The show, therefore, ultimately helped to kick-start a new cycle of annual economic activity in the print industry that will only continue to gather momentum.

Rather than just another corporate oriented event, The Print Show will also work to provide a fun and entertaining celebration of the industry's culture and history.

This is of key importance, as if the industry is to thrive and prosper into the future, today's brand managers, marketers, and media buyers from across the UK need to understand print's legacy and the value of printed products in a modern context.

  • The Printers Bazaar


    The Printers' Bazaar was inspired by the street markets of Asia, where you can pick up anything from car parts to exotic spices.

    Being able to see a wide variety of the latest niche print technology in action, while being surrounded by a myriad of real-world product examples, will hopefully inspire printers and give them tangible solutions to grow their revenue.

  • Print Masterclasses


    What is amazing is that in 2016 there are still a significant number of jobbing printers and specialised finishers that use historic technology for their everyday print production.

    And it is this unbroken chain of technical excellence and skills being handed down from one generation of printers to the next that The Print Show has set out to celebrate with our Print Masterclasses.

  • The Printers Arms


    One of the key highlights of The Print Show is that it has its very own pub.

    The Printer's Arms, a place to take a load off, have some good food, sink a beer or two, and network with industry colleagues or customers.

    The Printer's Arms was founded to support one of the most important activities at any trade show, networking.


At the heart of the UK print industry is the myriad of associations, charities, foundations, lobbying groups, federations, and manufacturer alliances.

Each contributes in its own way to the ultimate prosperity of the print industry. And so The Print Show has secured the support of each one, and is likewise offering the show's resources to these bodies to galvanise and encourage future growth.
