Organisers of The Print Show have revealed that this year’s event attracted a record 5,976 attendees.

The 2018 show ran from September 18th to 20th at the NEC in Birmingham and saw a host of major print, wide-format, finishing and software brands exhibit.

A number of companies reported sales at the event; Konica Minolta, Friedheim International, CMYUK and Renz were among those that sold kit in the show floor.

HP attracted plenty of interest in its new Latex R-series machinery, which was being shown for the first time in UK, while Hybrid Services also saw crowds gather around its Mimaki kit.

Elsewhere, Epson enjoyed a successful event where it showed off various pieces of kit in order to demonstrate is ability to support customers across a number of key markets.

Xeretec was also displaying the new Xerox Iridesse press for the first time and reported very heavy footfall across the three days.

Duplo International, Morgana, RISO, Vivid Laminating Technologies, Antalis, B&R Moll, Perfect Bindery Solutions and Printers Superstore were among the many other companies in attendance.

Confirmation of the record attendance comes after organisers earlier this week also announced that The Print Show will return to the NEC in 2019.

The Print Show debuted at the Birmingham venue in 2016 and remained at the site for 2016, before switching to Telford in 2017.
