The inkjetuniverse

IMI’s mission has always been to provide the latest inkjet technology, market, and applications information to the broadest possible cross section of the inkjet industry participants. Based on the current world order of expanded virtual services; IMI will be broadening its information resources via multiple methods – all available within the new Inkjet Universe web site

Having served as a primary strategic information source for the digital and inkjet print industries for over thirty years, IMI is pleased to announce the next generation of information resources for the inkjet and digital print communities.

Bimonthly Digital Conferences

IMI’s two major inkjet industry conferences have been converted to ongoing bimonthly digital events for the coming year.

Bimonthly Digital Online Conference Sessions

These inaugural bimonthly ongoing digital conferences will feature:

  • Sessions on a scheduled basis every two months

  • Three 30-minute presentations by recognized industry leaders for each session

  • 5 to10 minute commentaries on each session’s topics from consultants, end-users, researchers, etc. with different perspectives on the session topics

  • Q & A opportunities via chat/live options

  • Suppliers Forum presentations: 1 to 3 per session

  • Downloadable handout materials including full participants list

  • Recorded sessions available to conference participants following each bimonthly session

  • Each session scheduled to last 2.5 to 3 hours

  • If possible, a live-in person summary/update conference session will be scheduled at a later date. Updates on this will follow as we assess the ever changing concerns impacting health/safety, travel, and group gatherings such as conferences.

Why an Ongoing Digital Event Format?

Since March, we have spent a great deal of time evaluating alternative digital approaches to providing effective and timely information, content, and contact development to the digital and inkjet industries.


We’ve arrived at our ongoing digital event format with bimonthly presentation sessions to enable a more cohesive and snappier option to build an involved community in the critical area of inkjet materials which are an essential element for the industry’s continued application expansion and market growth.


One major element in our decision that after participation in numerous online events, we have observed that participants attention spans and concentration are “challenged” by sessions ranging from 1/2 day to multiple days.


Thus, our goal is to provide a versatile ongoing resource which will benefit all those in the inkjet materials field.


We welcome your thoughts, comments, suggestions, etc. as we are sure our concept will be an evolving one over the course of the upcoming year.

Welcome aboard!
