Seiko Open Week 2022 is over, preparations begin for next edition
Different machines and a wide range of applications were on display at the event.

After its second appearance this year, the Seiko Open Week in Germany is establishing itself as a fixed annual event in the industry. This year, it was expanded with two additional workshop days. 

Thirteen different machines and many samples from a wide range of applications were displayed at the event, including textile printing, wood, corrugated board and ceramics, decorative printing,  printed electronics, coding and marking branches, and many more. The latest ink innovations, such as matt varnish or security ink, were demonstrated live. 

Representatives from all sectors, such as ink manufacturers, electronics and curing equipment suppliers, integrators, and independent technical consultants on all aspects of inkjet, were present. 

This year, there were People & Technology, IdeeGO, Cadis, Bluhm Weber Group, Inkatronic, Topjet,  Esmalglass-Itaca Group with Itaca Textile and Itaca Packaging, Kao Chimigraf, Siegwerk, Nazdar,  Integration Technology, Lambda Technology, Meteor, TriJet, DoDxAct, and many others.

The attendees well-received the event and felt such a platform for exchanging ideas and knowledge was needed. Seiko Instruments had made its laboratory and showroom available for such gatherings. 

In an industry where highly technical and complex coordination is necessary to offer customers the best possible solutions for their applications, it is important to provide a space where the pros and cons can be discussed without competition and where things can simply be tried out. 

And that is how Seiko wants to differentiate itself from others. 

Preparations for Seiko Open Week 2023 already started. A wider range of high-quality technical workshops will be offered next year geared towards new interesting topics. 

Today’s Seiko Group started from a watch shop founded in 1881 by Kintaro Hattori in Tokyo. Seiko Instruments, which has its headquarters in Neu-Isenburg, Germany, offers coin batteries, quartz crystals, thermal printers, and inkjet print heads.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
