Marcus Timson

Co-Founder InPrint Show and Pure Digital Show


Leatherhead, Surrey, United Kingdom
I left the University of Portsmouth, UK, with a degree in Politics back in 1992. I had a great time. Leaving without a clue what to do next and during a downturn, I was fortunate enough to literally fall into working at a publishing company. Here, I learned about selling, marketing, writing, and aspects of thought leadership which remain with me still.
At Reed Business Information around 1996, I met my Co-Founder Frazer Chesterman and then jumped head first into the live event and exhibition industry where I have enjoyed being ever since. In that time I have launched number of successful new shows, and have had the privilege of working with a number of talented people.

At Brintex, Touchstone and Exposure I worked on a number of new shows and launched a number of events before I joined FESPA in 2006 and the digital wide format printing market. Along with Frazer we grew the business into what it is today, launching new shows including FESPA Digital and FESPA Asia in Bangkok in 2008.

Since 2011, along with Frazer Chesterman & Stephen Brooks, we established FM Brooks, which is part of the Mack Brooks Exhibitions Group. Our focus has been to launch new shows for industrial printing for the manufacturing sector and for the creative industry.

Now we run the InPrint Show is the world's only event focused upon industrial printing and takes place in Germany, Italy and the US and we will continue to grow this community throughout the world whilst launching new shows into new markets and connecting the previously unconnected.
As well as the show itself we run and write the InPrint Blog which is a really popular blog with over 9,000 subscribers.
In April 2017, we launched Pure Digital which is the Digital Print Event for the Creative Industry, and takes place at the RAI, Amsterdam 17-19 April 2018.
In order for any new event, or business to become successful, a deep understanding of the market is essential. Not just to enhance one's reputation or credibility but to provide the market place with direction, support and value. I am fascinated by leadership and innovation and have a love of presenting and writing. These twin abilities enable me to have a positive influence on people's lives and add value to their business.
