There are changes in the scope for IPEX 2014 following decisions by Xerox and Komori not to attend.
The conclusion to shape Ipex into a thought leadership event for the print-centric multi-channel marketing communications industry was made following a review of the results of an independent global market study during Q4 2012.
These words need a bit of study. The "multi-channel marketing communications industry" is any form of communication. "print-centric" means that print is still at the centre of this. This last bit may be the centre of ongoing discussion.
So Cross Media Live http://www.crossmedialive.com/ 23/24 October will be even more interesting than the first one. I don't think the implications of print as part of communication are all thought through. The situation is still clarifying. So exact dates may not matter too much. There is a couple of years that has already started and includes IPEX 2014.
(Place is also variable. Islington and ExCel are not too far apart. I am based in Exeter where web connectivity is not too bad. Much can be observed)
