One of the biggest challenges facing commercial printers in the UK today is how to increase the profitability of their business in a market that is stable and only showing growth in a limited number of its core sectors. The aim of Diversification Zone is to provide an in-depth insight into print for packaging, label printing, textile-based graphics, large-format print, promotional printing, and speciality print finishing. Each of these are strong growth sectors that a commercial printer can diversify into and play to their strengths. Each of these six zones will feature live technology demonstrations, as well as free training and consultancy from experts in these fields.
The Golden Ticket
The Golden Ticket Prize Draw runs every year and has become a real highlight of The Print Show. Every pre-registered visitor receives a personalised print invitation to the show with a Golden Ticket attached to it. To enter the draw, they just need to bring it to The Print Show and have it scanned on the door.
In 2019 there will be more than £10,000 worth of prizes, and every day of The Print Show three lucky visitors will be independently drawn at 12.00, 14.00, and 16.00.
One of several top prizes in 2019 will be a unique, personalised pinball machine, featuring print`s iconic CMYK colour. Other prizes on offer this year include the new iPhone XR, Amazon vouchers and Luxury hampers.”
