The first edition of Print4All, the new exhibition format born of the cooperation between Acimga, Argi and Fiera Milano, which from 28 May to 1 June showcased the whole converting, package printing, labelling, commercial and industrial printing production chain, was a full success. Not just in terms of figures – which exceeded the expectations – but also when it comes to climate and prospects, fundamental in assessing the results of a fair.

31 000 unique visit – bound to rise once the official figures are released, which will include visits to halls 18 and 20 by those who accessed the exhibition grounds through the concurrent events of The Innovation Alliance – indicate a ratio of 2.2 visitors per square metre.

The climate at the fair is reported to have been excellent. The public showed interest from the first to the last day and companies were represented by top-level officials.

"We have achieved the objective of creating a platform showcasing top-lebel technology for the entire print production chain," comments Aldo Peretti, president of ACIMGA. "Together with our partners, we stubbornly believed in our exhibition heritage and in developing it into a brand new format, fighting every opposition and difficulty with tooth and nail; eventually the facts proved us right. The results we obtained made our Italian entrepreneurs proud and earned us the admiration of foreign markets. And we know we can do even better: this debut edition shows Print4All is already mature for a single-level exhibition with no architectural barriers limiting the exposition and the flow of visitors. We know the direction we need to work in to grow even more: the results of the recently closed exhibition provide valuable insights we can capitalise on to plan the next Print4All 2021, set to be staged after drupa 2020, with even more ambitious goals."
