IPEX 2014 will take place from 26 March to 2 April 2014. The quadrennial exhibition is relocating from The NEC to ExCeL London after more than 30 years in Birmingham.
Major print and media suppliers already confirmed include Duplo, Friedheim/Hunkeler, Fujifilm, Hans Grohni/Printers Superstore, Heidelberg, Konica Minolta, Muller Martini, Pitney Bowes and Xeikon.
"Never before in the history of IPEX have we experienced such a high volume of bookings from the top 100 industry suppliers wanting to stake their claim on the floor plan so early in the cycle," said Informa Print Group director Trevor Crawford.
"The scale of commitment and support truly reflects the enthusiasm we've encountered since the announcement of the relocation to London.
"Our recent exhibitor tours of ExCeL, which coincided with other major events taking place at the venue, have also accelerated the booking process enormously. Suppliers are hugely impressed with the state-of-the-art exhibition facilities at ExCeL and are eager to start their planning significantly earlier than for previous IPEX editions."
