Bhalchandra Nikumb – Kodak’s Country Business Manager, India was very happy with the PrintPack outcome for Kodak. “We were overwhelmed with the response. We received tremendous footfall on all 6 days, all the way till the last minute of the show and beyond too,” he says.
“The 14th edition of PrintPack 2019 observed an increase in exhibitors as well as unique visitors over previous editions. This was evident in our positive conversations at the show, as we observed good leads and traction across all solution verticals. It helped us showcase our strength in technologies and speed up our momentum in the market for 2019,” continues Nikumb.
Speaking on the relatively long duration of 6-days for the show, he tells that visitors from different parts of the country timed their visits in a way that footfall seemed to be evenly-spread over 6 days. “Looking at the trend, number of visitors and positivity, 6 days was a good timeframe to meet our customers as well as interact with other industry members to take print further,” he asserts.
Kodak’s focus at PrintPack was on their leading thermal CTP equipment and Sonora process-free plates, on the cutting-edge Flexcel NX technology, robust and productivity-enhancing Workflow solutions, Kodak NEXPRESS digital printing press and Kodak Prosper Inkjet imprinting technology. “Across all these solutions we displayed customer samples and live demonstrations of workflow, thereby presenting actual benefits our customers are experiencing. It was a good show in terms of leads for each solution,” reveals Nikumb.
“With the tremendous response we received at PrintPack India, we can surely say that the Print industry is on the right path again. Print business owners are expanding their horizons as they look to grow and invest in the latest technologies,” he concludes.
