Rich Egert, General Manager of the Strategic Technology Provider Business Group, OKI Data Americas: "This was OKI Data Americas' second time exhibiting at Labelexpo Americas. The show far exceeded our expectations. Despite being relative newcomers to the commercial digital color printing arena, OKI's proColor Series received a fantastic response. There was great energy on the show floor and steady traffic within our booth. We were impressed with the quality of participants and number of attendees interested in digital color printing solutions. We introduced our new OKI pro511DW digital web press at Labelexpo Americas, generating tremendous interest and making sales. We were so pleased with Labelexpo Americas 2012 that we've already committed to attending in 2014."
Holly Poplawski, PC Industries: “Labelexpo Americas 2012 was a very successful show for PC Industries. We had a great response to the debut of our newest Graphic-Vision® web viewers. The Guardian Off-line Proofing and Print Quality Verification systems also drew a lot of interest, with demonstrations running regularly throughout the show on each of our eight machines. We saw an impressive amount of interest in our inspection systems from members of a wide range of industries, and received several orders and many exciting leads from the show. Overall, Labelexpo Americas 2012 was a great experience.”
Tim Rye, General Manager, RYECO Inc: “RYECO came to Labelexpo Americas 2012 with high expectations. This year was our third Labelexpo show. During our first year we recognized that the show was attracting our target customer better than most other shows. On our last visit we generated 238 leads for our Defect Marking Systems and can attribute many orders to these leads. During the three day Labelexpo Americas 2012 show we generated over 300 leads. This is a great success as we had leads from many countries as well as the United States.”
Sevki Ergun, CEO, Sinkotech USA: “Labelexpo Americas 2012 was very good for us. Traffic was high, the show was managed well. Thank you.”
Wilfried Koopman, Managing Director Graphics, Stork Prints: “Winning the prestigious Label Industry Global Award for Continuous Innovation was the icing on the cake for Stork Prints, looking back at a very successful Labelexpo Americas 2012. The stand crew received many interested visitors and the live demos of the DSI® UV inkjet printer turned out to be very popular. We are very happy to say we received significant orders for both screen and inkjet printing!”
Peter Tupman, Sales Manager, Tools & Production Inc: “There was a steady flow of customers to our booth during the course of the show. Interest was shown in the company's core equipment as well as its newly released E-Z Change Converter Die Cutter. Labelexpo Americas continues to provide consistent opportunities to discuss its equipment capabilities with a wide selection of customers from the USA and other countries. We will continue to support this show in the future."
Michael V. Ring, President, Xeikon Americas: “Labelexpo Americas 2012 gave us the perfect platform to further reinforce our leadership in the labels and packaging markets. In addition to the Xeikon 3000 Series of digital label presses, which were prominently displayed at our booth as well as the Package Printing Zone, the show also marked the first North American demonstration of our ThermoFlexX platemaking solution for the Flexo & Letterpresses markets. During the show, we met many new converters, sold more than we anticipated, and had some enlightening conversations with suppliers, in both the North and South American markets. All in all, we had a very successful event and are eagerly looking forward to next year’s Labelexpo Europe in Brussels.”
Yolanda Simonsis, President/Editorial Director, YTC Media Inc and Paper, Film & Foil Converter – PFFC: “Comments I heard on the show floor described it as a "buying show," which indicates to me that label converters were investing in technology to make them more competitive, efficient, and productive. I've never seen so many new product introductions announced at one show, and I've been doing this for 34 years!”
