IPIA promises a ‘catalyst for growth and collaboration’

The IPIA has launched its inaugural physical event of the year with a clear mission: to invigorate the print economy and re-energize attendees. Set for June 19th, the Annual Networking Lunch promises to foster connections and drive momentum within the industry.

Matthew Ruff, Chair of the IPIA Events Subcommittee, shares his enthusiasm for the upcoming event: "Our Annual Networking Lunch isn't just another industry event; it's a catalyst for growth and collaboration in the print sector. We've meticulously crafted an experience that fosters meaningful connections, sparks innovative ideas, and drives expansion.”

The IPIA develops a series of events throughout the year to bring together a cross section of printers, print buyers, suppliers, designers, marketing agencies and technology developers - providing attendees the opportunity to learn from peers, grow their business network and generate new customers.
“The networking lunch is a must attend event, as it’s a great opportunity to catch up with industry colleagues and meet new ones too. The venue is superb, with a relaxed atmosphere that facilitates engaging conversations with like-minded people,” says regular attendee Lance Hill, Managing Director of Eight Days a Week Print Solutions.
A valuable investment
The Annual Networking Lunch includes a welcoming glass of bubbly or two, a sumptuous three-course lunch accompanied by a selection of wine, beer, or soft drinks, as well as access to a networking introduction service.
The venue is the beautiful sky restaurant Orelle in Birmingham, located just a brief stroll from both Birmingham New Street and Birmingham Snow Hill stations. This venue offers breathtaking views from Birmingham’s tallest building and guests will be able to immerse themselves in the vibrant city centre atmosphere - while enjoying exquisite French cuisine.
Charles Rogers, IPIA Chair, comments: “At the heart of the IPIA Annual Networking Lunch is a commitment to hospitality and ROI. We recognise taking a day out of business means the event must be a valuable investment of time, this is why we ensure we know who is of interest to you when signing up to the lunch. From tailored introductions to engaging conversations, we're dedicated to making your experience both enjoyable and rewarding.
“If you've never attended an IPIA networking event before, I encourage you to take the leap. Join us at the Annual Networking Lunch and discover firsthand the incredible opportunities that await within this vibrant community.”
The event kicks off with casual networking and welcome drinks at 12:00, followed by lunch from 13:00. To encourage diverse interactions, guests will switch tables between courses.
There will be a pause in proceedings at 14:30 – as Charles gives an address on market trends, followed by a special presentation from Micropress Printers' Joint Managing Director Rob Cross; he will explain how the company has adapted to critical industry trends, significantly strengthened its sustainability and grown.
The Networking Lunch wraps up at 16:00, and for those keen to extend their networking opportunities, Henman and Cooper, conveniently located across from the venue, offers a perfect post-event socializing spot.
If you want to meet new people and grow your network, or simply catch up with some friendly faces in a great atmosphere, come and enjoy some of the finest networking available in our industry.
