Tarsus Group and İFO focus on Emerging Printing Technologies

 Latest innovations in print technologies to be on display at the Tarsus Group’s global portfolio of exhibitions and summits in 2015

With its internationally renowned Labelexpo series of events and Labels & Labeling publications, Tarsus Group is the world leader in exhibitions and publishing for the global label printing sector. In addition it is also a market leader in delivering general print industry events e.g. Gulf Print & Pack in Dubai, sign and digital printing e.g. SIGN Istanbul, 3D printing with the 3D Printshow Global Series e.g. including events in New York, Dubai, Paris and London, and more recently with the launch of its shows dedicated to industrial printing in Mexico and Turkey.

For the past 16 years, İFO has been guiding the digital print sector with its market leading event, Sign Istanbul, and will now combine its experience with the rest of the Tarsus Group to organise the “Industrial Print Summit” for the first time in Turkey in 2015.

Labelexpo Europe was first organised in London in 1980 and then it was moved to Brussels in 1985. As market leading fairs for labels and the package printing industry, Labelexpo has become the flagship series of exhibitions for the Tarsus Group. The Labelexpo series of events are the world’s biggest and most international fairs for the labels industry and include exhibitions and summits in Europe, USA, China, India, Latin America, Africa and Asia.
İFO has been organizing Sign Istanbul for the past 16 years. This fair is the most significant event in wide format digital printing in the Eurasia region offering many new trade opportunities from not only Turkey but from the surrounding emerging markets also. In recent years, the textile sector has started to use digital printing technologies and this now makes textile and digital printing one of the most important sections of Sign Istanbul Fair.

Tarsus Group and İFO provide new event for the Industrial Printing Sector

3D printing technologies and applications will be discussed for the first time in Turkey together with other industrial printing technologies at Industrial Print Summit Istanbul in May 2015.

İFO and Tarsus Group continue to focus on emerging print technologies including the 3D Printshow series which saw it organise shows in London and Paris in 2014 to be followed in 2015 by events in Madrid, Berlin, New York, London, California, Paris and Dubai. 2015 will also see two new “Industrial Print” events taking place with  Industrial Print Expo organized in Mexico and Industrial Print Summit organized in Istanbul. Tarsus Group will be the leading organizer of fairs and summits which cater to label and packaging printing, wide format digital printing, 3D printing and industrial printing technologies. Douglas Emslie, Managing Director of Tarsus Group Limited said, “Tarsus has extensive experience and expertise in organising market leading events for the global print community. With manufacturers demanding ever more efficient and flexible production, it was a natural extension for us to launch events dedicated to the role of printing in the manufacturing process and we are very excited to stage the Industrial Print Summit in such a dynamic market as Turkey.”      

Industrial Print Summit Istanbul 2015 will be organized at WOW Istanbul Convention Center from May 6-7 2015 where all aspects of industrial related printing will be discussed including developments in print processes for hundreds of different manufacturing fields from textile, leather, ceramic, glass, furniture, floor, packaging, automotive to medical sector. At Industrial Print Summit İstanbul, technological developments in screen printing, pad, digital, flexo, inkjet and 3D printing will be introduced to participants, and specialist European speakers will discuss the developments in this field.
