TheIJC - The Inkjet Conference

Driven by research and by technology, inkjet continues to change the manufacturing process. The widespread adoption of this technology was confirmed during the inaugural event of The Inkjet Conference (TheIJC) in autumn 2014. Almost 300 attendees, mostly machinery manufacturers, brand owners and suppliers have gathered for the first time in Swissôtel (now Crowne Plaza) Düsseldorf/Neuss for two days and two tracks of technical talks and hours of networking. The event attracted both industry and academic institutions who presented their research and provided technology updates. Founded by Digital Direct Technologies Ltd.Organised by ESMA (European Specialist Printing Manufacturers Association) and Digital Direct Technologies Ltd , with the support of drupa and in media partnership with “Specialist Printing Worldwide”, TheIJC has grown from to over 500 participants during the 2019 edition.

The global pandemic of 2020-21 has changed the way we travel and the way events are organised. TheIJC has been discontinued until further notice.
