Senior Editor Cary Sherburne spoke with HP’s Sumeer Chandra to get a better understanding of what was behind this decision, and also includes an official statement from IPEX.

Actually, HP not being there really does nothing for the competitors.

Just because HP isn't at the show doesn't mean they won't be in the consideration set of a qualified buyer.

I'm not going to go to the show and look at XYZ digital press, and then not look at an Indigo because they aren't at Ipex. That would be idiotic.
