RESTON, VA—Oct. 31, 2012—On the heels of an exhilarating GRAPH EXPO 2012, and in advance of verified show attendance data to be reported next week, the following is just a sampling of the comments from attendees and exhibitors who spoke out on the quality of this year’s show.
  • Attendees were pleased with the variety of new equipment, applications, products and services, and also the expanded array of education and networking opportunities offered by this year’s 48 co-located industry events and new floor attractions.
  • Exhibitors declared plentiful new leads and sales during the event held, Oct, 7–10, 2012 in Chicago’s McCormick Place.

“GRAPH EXPO 2012 was DGM’s busiest and most successful show in recent memory with a 20% increase in leads over last year’s show. Our sales people and strategic partners will be busy for months following up on interest in our equipment and services from new prospects and long-time customers alike,” Michael DeBard, president, Diversified Graphic Machinery

“A great big thank you from the Océ team for a very well planned and organized GRAPH EXPO! Our team and our customers really enjoyed the experience this year and in fact it may be the best GRAPH EXPO to date. Thanks again and glad we were a part of it,” Francis A. McMahon, vice president, marketing, Océ North America

“GRAPH EXPO has been a great show for Enfocus. It tops off a great year so far, especially considering the 36-percent sales revenue increase in new Switch licenses year over year. At the end of the show, we totaled 35 percent more leads than last year’s edition of GRAPH EXPO. I must also stress that the quality of the booth visitors has gone up compared to previous editions, as most of our visitors are trying to make their own organizations more productive and cost effective with our solution,” Fabian Prudhomme, vice president, Esko

“How is GRAPH EXPO this year? Let’s put it this way: We had the worldwide debut of our new Impressia digital print system here at 12:00 on Sunday and it was 12:22 when we placed our first order. We have been averaging one sale every 30 minutes, so it has been very, very exciting. Attendees are buying!” Arthur Verwey, vice president international sales and marketing, Xante

“GRAPH EXPO was our best presentation in the Americas for the second year in a row. With two digital presses constantly in production throughout the show hours, we had a busy booth with over 50,000 samples given to people, which was over 2,000 samples every hour of the show!!! We signed new orders and received many new leads for follow-up after the show. The feedback was great and once again we learned that printers, graphic designers and print buyers all come to GRAPH EXPO to learn about new innovations in the printing industry such as Scodix. We thank GRAPH EXPO for the service and the support and for making it a successful event,” Ziki Kuly, vp marketing, Scodix
