The Digital Solutions event is moving to a custom-built show-space in London's Docklands for the next event, planned in November.

Event organizer Russell Peacock said: "We are moving the show back to November, as this sits better in the international show agenda. We are also changing location and moving to a purpose-built exhibition space – Excel in London Docklands."

The next Digital Solutions event will take place there from November 27-29.

Digital Solutions is focused on digital-asset management for production and publishing. This year's event, which closed yesterday at London's Olympia, attracted record crowds.

Peacock said: "We've had around 7,000 visitors this year - we got 5,600 last year."

PDF was a key focus of the show – in recent research, UK business analyst firm The Plimsoll Group predicted that the straight-to-plate technology will put 25 per cent of printers and publishers out of business this year.

Peacock said: "We ran an open meeting between user groups and professional producers on PDF. It was attended by 150 key decision-makers."
