To say that Hunkeler innovationdays 2015 was a success for Ricoh would be a big understatement. As we continue to take our message of the power digital print technologies brings to print service providers who are seeking new ways to communicate with their clients around the world, this latest event in picturesque Lucerne was a high point for us.
Always known to be a show that “gets right down to business,” HID 2015 did not disappoint. With its no frills approach, HID 2015 brings together serious print buyers who want to roll up their sleeves and really get into the ins and outs of the technology and solutions. This show is exciting and helps the adrenaline to start pumping. This year was a non-stop rush from beginning to end – and we enjoyed every second of it.
The buzz around Ricoh and on our booth was unavoidable. It was as if you could feel the energy under your skin – and it wasn’t just the speed of our machines! With the recent launches of our Ricoh Pro VC60000 and the Ricoh Pro C9100 series, and also the Ricoh Pro C7100X (which wasn’t even on the floor, yet still caused a stir!), the Ricoh booth was clearly a must-see for attendees. This year we talked with commercial printers looking to take their first step into digital, publishers who sought proven inkjet colour and monochrome offerings, service bureaux in need of better batching solutions, and so much more. It was non-stop, but it was a great experience.
Not only were our technology demonstrations a hit, but one could argue the range and quality of our samples made its way around the floor even faster.
In fact many people – including some members of the press – commented that Ricoh has set a new bar for quality in colour inkjet.
Visitors to the stand could not only see the technology, but there were also plentiful samples from the Ricoh portfolio. This included samples from the Ricoh Pro VC60000 printed on offset-coated stock, the market-leading InfoPrint 5000, the Ricoh Pro C9100 series and the Ricoh Pro C7100X. From trade books and marketing collateral to coffee table books, there was something for everyone to touch, feel and take home.
If you were unable to join us in Lucerne, or even if your schedule did not allow the time to explore in depth how Ricoh might support your businesses evolution, you might consider visiting our new European centre of excellence, the Customer Experience Centre, in Telford, UK.
