Mimaki Europe has signed on as a founding exhibitor and supporter of EcoPrint 2012, the new print industry event dedicated to sustainable print production.
As a founding exhibitor, the company will also take its seat among other industry leaders on the EcoPrint Development Group, where it will play a key part in defining and refining the event.
Mike Horsten, Marketing Manager, Mimaki, said, Mimaki’s decision to become a founding exhibitor is in line with its strategy to innovate new technologies that combine high print volumes and sustainable performance. The EcoPrint concept recognises that sustainability doesn’t exist without commercial viability, yet to be commercially viable you must be a sustainable and creative business. This is a reflection of Mimaki’s approach to technology and so this new event is a compelling proposition.
Frazer Chesterman, Director, EcoPrint said, Naturally, a leading innovator such as Mimaki committing this early to EcoPrint demonstrates the confidence the print sector has in the EcoPrint concept. Mimaki is the leader in digital textile production, an exciting growth area with flexible and creative potential allied to considerable sustainable performance – all factors which resonate with EcoPrint’s objectives. Add to that Horstens expertise and enthusiastic commitment to sustainability and you have an exciting combination which will add tremendous value to the event.
It is a question of when, not if, the main marketplace adopts green practices and products in its entirety. So, adopting a sustainable business strategy makes good business sense and EcoPrint will afford visitors a significant head start in this respect, said Horsten.
EcoPrint runs from 26-27 September 2012 in Berlin. www.ecoprintshow.com
