Interior design by Knoblauch, one of the presenters on the creative track

18 presentations on the technical track and 10 more on the creative track provide for an intense learning and networking agenda during the 2nd edition of the Printed Interior Decoration (PID) conference which takes place on 5-6 June 2018 at the Radisson Blu Scandinavia hotel in Düsseldorf. Participants will witness the latest printing technologies for home textiles, wallpapers, laminated floorings, wooden panels, carpets, building and mobile interiors.

“Large format printing and industrial inkjet in general have been increasingly stimulating the trend of developing printed products for interior decoration, as well as personalisation of design items. The trend has expanded in the professional environment and found its way into shops, bars, hotels, offices and other commercial areas. It employs digital printing technology for creating series of unique designs on wood, glass, textiles and other materials,” says Peter Buttiens, CEO of ESMA (European Specialist Printing Manufacturers Association), conference organiser. “On one hand, it is driven by economical aspects resulting in imitation of expensive materials such as exotic wood types or wall decoration techniques such as frescos and murals. On the other hand, we witness a returning demand for the use of large scale pictures as wallpaper or ceiling covers, only now they can be produced in the finest quality, meeting visual expectations, light fastness requirements and the overall end user demands. In that context, we invite both technology suppliers, as well as printers, interior designers, shop fitters and architects to PID 2018.”
