MA Exhibitions and PrintWeek deliver a show designed for the industry, by the industry – PrintWeekLive!
Across its two days, over 2,200 visitors attended PrintWeekLive! from 1,000 companies, with more than 80% of attendees manager level or above.
Designed for all segments of the industry, printers, buyers, and vendors.
The inaugural PrintWeekLive! was acclaimed as a success, with exhibitors reporting strong interest from visitors in new technology, and innovative ways to grow their businesses.
Across the annual show’s two days the Wasps Arena, Coventry, welcomed over 2,200 visitors. Attendees were attracted by combination of a show floor featuring the latest technology, workshop theatres promoting best practice, and a conference schedule boasting many inspirational speakers.
The show floor featured four workshop theatres and hosted the event’s six headline sponsors: Antalis, Close Brothers Asset Finance, Duplo, Heidelberg, Tharstern and Xerox, along with dozens of the industry’s other leading manufacturers and suppliers, showing off their latest kit, applications and services.
After the triumph of PrintWeekLive! 2017, plans are already well underway to make the second year bigger and better than the first.
PrintWeekLive! 2018 will take place at the Wasps Arena, Coventry on 7-8 March.

It's a good opportunity to get up close and personal with exhibitors, and to take part in workshops and conference sessions which help gather ideas that could work in your business.Beth Bethell, IT Director, St Ives.
I found the event very interesting and wished I had set a side two days as opposed to half a day. I enjoyed the event and had some good meetings. I wish I had planned myself better and attended on both days and attended more of the workshops. I liked the set up and layout as it was a lot more intimate than other events I have attended. I think the workshops and conferences are important as I feel we should all be talking with each other and sharing ideas in order to move this industry forwards, in spite of all the hurdles we face.Fenton Smith, Managing Director, Boss Print Ltd.
Happy to support new events that keep print alive and kickingBarry Pearson, Project and Product Manager, Nitecrest.
