EskoWorld 2012 Exceeds Expectations for Participation and Customer Reviews
MIAMISBURG, OH—July 18, 2012—Esko announces that 532 people, 180 more than the previous record-breaking crowd, attended the recently concluded EskoWorld User Conference, held June 17-20, 2012, at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside. The successful program, which brought rave reviews from everyone involved, provided a complete update of all the new Esko products introduced during drupa 2012, as well as a wide variety of industry outlooks, product presentations and future roadmaps—along with workshops for anyone with an interest in packaging, displays, and printing.
There is no limit where an EskoWorld User Conference can take a customer, which is why Esko adopted “No Limits” as its event slogan for 2012.
“I’ve attended five or six EskoWorld conferences, but it seems like every year we see something new and impressive,” comments Kevin Corrigan, senior designer at Great Northern Co. “I was fascinated with all the new advances, particularly all the 3D products. The 3D Store Visualizer, viewed on a large screen with 3D glasses, was extraordinary. I attended most of the ArtiosCAD roadmap sessions, where we saw all of the 3D developments coming in the future. It was extremely helpful.”
“Response from everyone is that EskoWorld 2012 was the best they had ever attended,” raves Mark Quinlan, president, Esko Americas. “Beyond the complete program that had something for everyone, a track in Spanish for Latin American visitors, and overviews of a wide array of new products, the event was extremely well-planned. The hands-on sessions and presentations helped attendees learn how to make the most of their Esko products—and give them a glimpse into the future. There is no doubt that attendees were able to return home with ideas of how to use their Esko products even better.”
After Simon James, Esko VP global marketing, welcomed and officially opened EskoWorld 2012, Bernard Zwaenepoel, Esko senior vp software business, greeted the audience and offered a complete update of Esko products that were introduced at drupa. Jan De Roeck, Esko director of solutions management, provided an overview of the 14 hectic days of drupa, and offered a perspective of how the most important trends for packaging and labels could influence businesses in the future.
