The Print Show postponed to September 2021

We have made the difficult decision to postpone The Print Show 2020 and The Sign Show 2020 until next year, due to the ongoing novel coronavirus (Covid-19) situation in the UK. The safety of exhibitors and visitors is our number one priority and though this was not an easy choice, we believe it to be the right course of action.

However, we are delighted to confirm that The Print Show and The Sign Show will both take place in 2021. The shows will run from September 28th to 30th at the NEC in Birmingham and we will publish further updates as soon as possible.

Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you in 2021!

Print without barriers

The Print Show prides itself on being the only event entirely dedicated to the UK print industry. At our 2019 show, we featured exhibitors from all corners of the industry, providing them with the platform to reach UK customers from across the market. Rather than over-extending itself, the show remains committed to this UK focus.

One of the most important changes to The Print Show this year is that, for the first time, we will be including a weekend date by opening on a Sunday. This decision was based on detailed feedback from visitors, with the idea of making the show more accessible to those companies that cannot spare the time to get out of the office or workshop during the working week. Simply put, this new weekend opening day will provide our exhibitors with access to a whole new range of visitors from the UK print market.

Print is no longer just about ink on paper; of course this remains a major element of the market, but the industry now offers so much more. The Print Show 2020 will champion ‘Print Without Barriers’, showcasing the many growth opportunities available to the industry.


The Print Show is the only exhibition that is entirely dedicated to the UK print market; no other event provides visitors with access to exhibitors that are solely focused on reaching UK customers. From printing presses and finishing kit, through to wide-format printers and 3D print innovations, visitors will be able to see technology from right across the print spectrum.



From the largest litho print houses, through to independent print, design and marketing businesses, we ensure you can connect with brand new prospects from across the market.

Your investment in The Print Show is in safe hands. Link Exhibitions has no limitation on marketing the event to its database of more than 24,000 industry contacts that span the graphic arts and visual communications sectors. Utilising our industry leading magazine titles Print Monthly and SignLink, each with an individual circulation of 10,000 copies per month, your attendance at the show will be promoted long before the doors open.

Countdown To The Print Show








Crossroads of opportunity

The quality of visitors is improving year-on-year, with exhibitors at the 2019 show reporting more quality leads than ever. This is one of the key reasons why so many companies use the show as a platform for national, European and even worldwide technology launches.

The Print Show has welcomed more than 25,000 visitors since its debut event in 2015, many of who were at the event to purchase new machinery, with millions of pounds of business having been done as a result of the show. Exhibitors also benefit from in-depth coverage in industry-leading titles Print Monthly and SignLink in the months leading up to the show. In addition, the co-location of The Sign Show alongside The Print Show will be an added incentive to attend the event in 2021.

Celebrity Attractions

While new products, technologies and solutions will be the main attraction for visitors at The Print Show 2021, those in attendance will also have access to a special feature that adds even more value to their visit.

Visitors and exhibitors alike will have an incredible opportunity to meet three famous faces as part of our celebrity attractions.

Our celebrities will not only spend the day chatting to visitors about their lives in the spotlight, but also take part in a live Q&A session where attendees can quiz them about their careers.

As an added bonus, visitors and exhibitors can have a professional photograph taken with the celebrities and take away an autographed souvenir to remember their day at The Print Show.
