UV Expo

Since 2002, we have been keeping national and international printing experts up to date with the latest news and facts on UV technology. Over the years, the event has evolved into the world's largest in-house exhibition for UV and LED technology. More than 900 visitors from 33 countries and 45 renowned exhibitors from the industry proved this beyond doubt in 2017. Visitors from around the globe use the UV Days as an opportunity to meet and exchange experiences. The programme of presentations in German and English, workshops and demonstrations concludes with a joint get-together in the UV Lounge, meaning there will be plenty of opportunities for the industry professionals, hosts and exhibitors to converse.

For newcomers to the world of LED and UV, and experienced UV users alike, the UV Days are the event of the year for exchanging information. Numerous industry partners will be in attendance to share their know-how.

Visual and haptic stimuli will continue to determine the attractiveness of a high-quality product. But what added value can a product have in order to stand out from the competition? Together with well-known industry partners, we will present a programme that will answer this and many other questions in a way that appeals to all your senses.  Guided by experienced IST specialists, you will have the opportunity take part in various print demonstrations, workshops and company tours. All items on the programme will be repeated several times each day.
