IPEX 2002 – the global event for professional print, publishing and media workers – is set to be a digital-solutions showpiece.

The event, staged every four years, will be held at Birmingham's National Exhibition Centre from April 9-17. New features at the 15-hall show include areas devoted to digital print-solutions.

Exhibitions director Caroline Eden said: "IPEX's significant growth is particularly gratifying, because the industry has consolidated in the past few years."

The IPEX Web site includes an exhibitors list, company details, floor plans, and news about products and services at the event. Pre-registration and show guides are also available online.
