Visual Media Conference 7 April 2020 – Book now!
The Visual Media Conference provides a unique opportunity to learn more about what to expect from drupa in advance of their event in June 2020!
The BPIF are delighted to bring you the 7th Visual Media Conference and Exhibition on 7 April 2020 at the Rose Bowl Leeds. The VMC is a free-to-attend one day event providing vivid insights into marketing and digital communications, vital to the printing and creative industries.
Organised together with CDI, a special interest group of the BPIF, this year the Visual Media Cconference theme ‘Fake it or make it’, addresses the falseness of news, abuse of data, Google stats, fake followers, greenwashing and importantly the obverse – trustworthiness and authenticity.
There is an extremely impressive line-up of national and international speakers at this year’s event, from companies such as Coca-Cola on branding, Communisis on Artificial Intelligence and HP on new printing technology, who will use powerful case studies and provide take-away practical ideas. All of this will be backed up with an exhibition including Virtual Reality, and a unique opportunity to learn what to expect from drupa at their global event in Düsseldorf in June 2020.
Two Sides are also on the speaking line up, where you will be able to hear MD, Jonathan Tame, busting popular myths surrounding the paper & print industry. He’ll talk about the impact of greenwashing and you’ll be able to find out more about the sustainability of the paper industry.
“It gets better and better every year. We’ve listened to what you told us you wanted, so be prepared for some surprises – illusions and facts!” Robert McClements, CDI President.
Places are limited, so make sure to book your place now to guarantee availability at www.visualmediaconference.com
