Someone sent me a free ticket to this year’s IPEX (International Printing Exhibition) at The NEC. I hadn’t been for years, so I thought I’d take a look to see what’s new in the world of printing. Driving into the NEC I was immediately intrigued by these cut-out crowds, randomly placed outside the halls. With no obvious branding, I scoured the massive exhibition for their source. It turned out to be Agfa, who’d run them straight onto foamex using their latest flatbed digital press. Coincidentally Jeni from Milestone’s Dad was on the stand and he kindly gave me a demo. It was certainly one of the most interesting things I saw and a clever way to subvert the whole trade show thing.
