I was really looking forward to taking a look at all the new HP products, particularly the Scitex FB550 and the FB750. I was not disappointed at all – the new iterations of these machines were showing great results at high speed and the new clean look was a welcome surprise.
I also wanted to see the new HP Latex 3500 and 3100 series. It was brilliant to see that they had improved on the previous models in terms of flexibility and performance, but the 3500 also had the ability to boost productivity with ten-litre ink capacity and remote monitoring.
I did go to a lot of HP demonstrations, but I was actually on a panel myself! We discussed digital and traditional methods of producing signage and it was a really great experience to learn about a side of printing that I don’t normally deal with.
FESPA is really good for us because we get to meet up with our clients, see all the technology from our manufacturers and keep up-to-date with what’s going on in the industry. It’s a good chance to meet with new and potential customers as well and get the word out about Perfect Colours to show what we can offer everyone.
I felt that it was an extremely upbeat show with lots of new offerings. For me, HP was the standout exhibitor, but there was a great buzz about the industry overall. The amount of variety at the show made it really interesting and I felt like I went away with a lot of good feelings about what next year will offer. I think that a lot of advancements moving forwards are going to be very promising.
Very much! There’s a good mix of excellent restaurants and bars and lovely hotels in Cologne. I had a brilliant time at FESPA and I’ll definitely be going to the exhibition at the RAI next year.
