London 2017 Digital Book Printing Forum

London 2017 Digital Book Printing Forum

The annual London Digital Book Printing Forum provides an update on key trends and issues in the book market, the evolution of the supply chain and book manufacturing, as well as the status and inroads of digital printing. 

The 2017 London Digital Book Printing Forum will take place on Tuesday, June 27 from 9:00 to 17:00 at The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA). 

This year the event will focus on the key following areas: 
  • Cost Reduction: all surveys recently conducted by INTERQUEST among publishers in North America and Europe show cost control/reduction as a primary concern and a top opportunity for respondents.
  • Digital Print Quality: for most publishers, the quality of monochrome books produced digitally has now become a non-issue. Colour, however, is a different story—the publishers we have interviewed have indicated that matching offset printed books with digital technology remains a top challenge for them.
  • Business/Profit Opportunities: printed books sales have done relatively well in the past two years, but the future is somewhat uncertain and the competitive pressure very high. Publishers and printers are looking for ways to differentiate themselves and new business models/applications to add value.
  • International Perspectives: taking advantage of peers’ successful experiences, developments and ideas in other countries (without having to travel), is viewed by printers and publishers as a major benefit of INTERQUEST events. 

The seminar is designed around recent INTERQUEST research into digital book printing.
