Finishing solutions specialist Renz has become the latest company to sign up for The Print Show 2021, saying the timing of the event is “perfect” for the industry.

Renz has exhibited at The Print Show on a number of occasions and is one of the first to book its place for 2021 following confirmation that the event will return later this year.

Iain Bullock, managing director of Renz UK, says the company is looking forward to putting on a show and meeting people in person again.

“If ever there were a time to exhibit, meet potential new customers, catch up with existing customers and enjoy the company of industry colleagues again, in person, The Print Show at the end of September this year is it,” Bullock says.

“Some 18 months after the first lockdown began and by then the majority of the population and certainly all the vulnerable fully vaccinated, the timing at the end of September is perfect.

“I am absolutely sick and tired of Teams, Zoom, GoToMeeting and virtual events. I’ve been in the office all through the crisis since March 2020 talking to people through little boxes on my desktop, and I’m sure the majority of people are ready to leave the virtual world and get back to the real one.”

The Print Show 2021 coincides with the start of one of Renz’s busiest times of the year, with the calendar production season starting around the same time of the event.

As such, Renz will be displaying automated punching and binding equipment for this sector of the industry.

“The Print Show will be the first UK print event of any significance since the pandemic began and will hopefully signal a return to the normality of human interaction,” Bullock says.
