“This is a very exciting time of growth and opportunity for the Chinese printing market,” noted Steve Green, Regional Managing Director, CDG and GCG, Asia Pacific Region, and Vice President, Eastman Kodak Company. “We are seeing very high interest in every area—from workflow and prepress to digital printing and business services. This show provides an excellent venue for interacting with our customers and helping them to identify the best tools to capitalize on this fast-changing industry.”
