Exhibitors had positive feedback about the event:
“The show was fantastic! We had an amazing response with the launch of our 3D Fusion letter printer, and swissQprint Karibu roll to roll at 200 square meters an hour – both a game changer – as well as R50 million worth of sales. Printing with our UV P ink, which was also showcased, has revolutionised printing on uncoated textiles, vinyl, PVC, paper, ABS, Correx, Dibond and much more,” said Adrian Wolman, Sign-Tronic.
Niki Long from Graphix Supply World said, “It was a great show for us with loads of enquires and over R20 million in sales. The expo definitely exceeded our expectations.”
William Gibson from Falcon SA said, “We really enjoyed the expo, it was a good show. I especially liked the hot new product tour.”
Jithoo Daya from Maxsigns said, “We had much better engagement with visitors this year, who liked our new products.”
Nardus Mouton from Gencotech said, “It was a very good show for us with lots of positive leads. The visitors were particularly interested in our new products. The expo is always a positive experience for us.”
Vic Anderson from Clip-Tite said, “The show was a good opportunity to make contact with existing customers.”
