    The United Kingdom is the world's fifth largest producer of printed products and turns over more than £13.5bn. The Print Show's goal is to celebrate our industry's unique legacy and support its long-term prosperity by providing a solid annual economic kick-starter for our sector.


    The Print Show not only gives you the chance to see the latest print production technology from digital and litho presses, through finishing systems, to software and trade services. It offers a high value day for your business and a comprehensive educational programme.


    If you supply to the UK print industry and want to get your business in front of thousands of quality visitors that are directly relevant to your products and services, this is the show for you. The Print Show in its second year saw 5,916 visitors cross its doors.


    One of the key strengths of The Print Show is that it is a live showcase of a wide variety of both print and finishing technology that is well established and evolves year on year, but also a swathe of never before seen equipment, products, and services.

    Many visitors to the show often find answers to key problems and challenges facing their business that they never knew existed. Check out this video to find out about just a few select examples of technology that went on show in 2016 and have created a real positive impact on our sector.

Rather than just another corporate oriented event, The Print Show will also work to provide a fun and entertaining celebration of the industry's culture and history.

This is of key importance, as if the industry is to thrive and prosper into the future, today's brand managers, marketers, and media buyers from across the UK need to understand print's legacy and the value of printed products in a modern context.

  • The Printers Bazaar


    In 2016 we launched The Printers’ Bazaar, which was one of the most celebrated sections of The Print Show.

    It provided six ‘shops’ that would give visitors insight into businesses in a box that required a low capital investment, but are capable of producing high-margin products and services.

  • Print Masterclasses


    The Traditional Print Masterclasses will transport you hundreds of years into the golden age of print’s past.

    Experts in the fields of letterpress, intaglio printing, and iron hand presses rub shoulders with master bookbinders, paper-makers, and modern foiling specialists.

  • The Printers Arms


    The saying ‘people buy from people’ is very true, and being able to sit down in a relaxed atmosphere without having to leave the hall is a fantastic asset to have.

    At The Printer’s Arms pub you can take a load off, have some good food, sink a pint or two, and network with industry colleagues or customers new and old.


The Print Show has secured a number of high-profile partners from the trade press. Although part of the same group as key industry title Print Monthly magazine, the event is an open and neutral platform for any media organisation that would like to exhibit or engage with it. The event is ultimately designed to support the print industry and the trade media is vital to this endeavour.

At the heart of the UK print industry is the myriad of associations, charities, foundations, lobbying groups, federations, and manufacturer alliances.

Each contributes in its own way to the ultimate prosperity of the print industry. And so The Print Show has secured the support of each one, and is likewise offering the show's resources to these bodies to galvanise and encourage future growth.
