Apple has confirmed it will exhibit at IPEX 2006, one of the biggest printing and graphics exhibitions in the world.

"Apple will host a large stand at the show, where attendees will be able to test-drive the latest Mac-based solutions for print, publishing and digital imaging, including workflows for new media publishing based on Mac OS X Tiger, all running on the new MacBook Pro," the company confirmed.

IPEX 2006 takes place at Birmingham's NEC Centre between April 4-11. The event isn't an annual show – the last one took place in 2002, when 65,451 professionals from the print and graphics industry showed up. Overseas visitors accounted for 36 per cent of the total attendance, and 65-70 per cent of attendees were senior personnel.
