Leading event of the online print industry goes global – TOP-topic Artificial Intelligence – OPS Community starts -Internationalisation of the symposium – Ticket and partner bookings at early bird prices now possible – New design and new website

Munich, 14. September 2023

On 14 and 15 March 2024, the Online Print Symposium will enter its 11th round at the Science Congress Center Munich with more than 300 participants from all over the world! After a brilliant anniversary event, the Online Print Symposium now presents itself in a new look. The new logo and design can already be seen on the website:

The defining topics in 2024 are already emerging today: AI in real-world applications in the print environment, new AI-driven business areas, intelligent cooperation networks, smart applications that combine print and digital and new applications in the field of mass customisation will dominate the OPS 2024.

Trend topics: Onlineprint in times of change

A lot is going to change in onlineprint: as Jörg Schieb said in his closing keynote at the anniversary OPS, artificial intelligence is the greatest innovation since the invention of the printing press – and this will also be experienced on the stage of the Online Print Symposium 2024!

But not only artificial intelligence in onlineprint with all its opportunities and risks will be a focus topic. Digital commerce, mass customisation, digital transformation and web-to-print are more relevant than ever and will also be addressed by the top-class speakers. Of course, the popular Insight Pitches will not be missing at the 11th edition of the OPS. Once again, innovative start-ups will present themselves to the audience – as always, who they are will be announced shortly before the event.

Every year, managing directors and decision-makers from leading companies take advantage of the many opportunities for networking and making contacts that the OPS offers. The varied programme, the supporting events with the Insider Get-Together and the Networking Dinner and the unique atmosphere make the OPS a special industry get-together every year. The Online Print Symposium is organised by zipcon consulting GmbH and Verband Druck und Medien Beratung GmbH.

„OPS goes global“

Not only onlineprint is undergoing rapid development, the OPS also has exciting innovations to offer: Since more and more international guests are coming to the leading event of the onlineprint industry, the main language will be English from now on. But as always, simultaneous interpreters will be on site so that every participant can follow the presentations in their preferred language.

But that was not all: a unique community has formed around the OPS, which also wants to be in contact with each other during the year. With a brand new online community platform, the organisers are now offering all participants the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of a well-connected OPS community all year round. In the new OPS community, which can only be joined by purchasing a ticket, exclusive benefits, access to the speakers’ presentations and much more await. In addition, a great wish of previous participants will come true: Anyone who indicates when buying a ticket that they want to join the new community will be able to network, exchange ideas and much more directly with all other participants, partners and speakers there.

Co-organiser Bernd Zipper, Managing Director of zipcon consulting, is already looking forward to the 11th OPS: “We have come up with a lot of ideas to constantly develop the OPS and make it even more interactive. The innovations in the areas of internationalisation and community will bring even more benefits to our participants and I am already looking forward to the feedback! But don’t worry: We won’t leave anyone behind – in other words, even though we are opening up internationally and the leading language will be English, networking and personal exchange will still be the focus.”
