Turnhout, 2 February 2023 – VIGC is once again presenting an exciting program on e-commerce for the graphic arts industry with its BOPE event (Benelux Online Print Event powered by Four Pees). The event’s fifth edition will take place on 15 March, and for the first time in its history, it will be located just across the Belgian border, in the Next Level event venue of Easyfairs Gorinchem, Netherlands.
BOPE, now an established event in the Benelux Online Print industry, offers a platform for everyone involved in online print. It is the meeting place to gather information on topics such as personalization, digital transformation, e-commerce and web-to-print for production companies, suppliers and the education sector.

BOPE is the annual meeting for anyone who has integrated online print into their business model or is about to do so. The 140 attendees of the 2022 edition of BOPE included European business owners, CEOs, COOs and department managers.
This year, VIGC wants to roll out the event in a new location, and also combine BOPE with a visit to the Sign & Print Expo. Thanks to this unique concept, networking and knowledge transfer about online print will be linked to a visit to the exhibition.
After BOPE, you will be able to also relax at the Belgian Beer Café that will be open for the networking event. This Belgian beer tasting will be provided by professional beer sommeliers.
Those who want to travel to BOPE carefree can use the VIGC bus arrangement. This service can be added as an option in the entrance ticket and includes breakfast. We offer the following routes: Ghent-Antwerp-Gorinchem and Leuven-Mechelen-Antwerp-Gorinchem.
Jos Steutelings, Managing Director of VIGC, is already very enthusiastic: “We have been playing with the idea of expanding BOPE to the Netherlands for a while and are happy to be finally crossing the border in 2023. It’s the perfect way to appeal to a wider audience. In addition, we want to make the most out of the day by visiting the Sign & Print expo after the BOPE event. A perfect combination that ensures a day packed with knowledge, information and hopefully new insights for the participants to make 2023 another successful year in the print industry.”
