KBA Hosts Texas Printers at Open House for Small-Format PressesJanuary 21, 2011
Positive turnout, well-received event
“This event was very well received and we enjoyed a positive turnout,” says Joe Polanco, president of PIA MidAmerica, a regional trade association serving businesses in Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas and Western Missouri. Its headquarters office is located in Dallas and a regional office is based in Kansas City. “It gave a good glimpse into KBA and its new headquarters in Dallas. The event allowed KBA to welcome local printers to its new facility and see their equipment running. And it allowed fellow KBA printers and press operators the opportunity to share ideas and meet each other.”
To provide a comfortable venue for attendees to learn about KBA’s ingenuity and technology, the firm served genuine German food in a festive Oktoberfest atmosphere.
Printers gained insight into producing a variety of superbly-printed press sheets and took samples with them; the most popular were shots photographed by renowned artist Rene Staud of unique, luxury cars, the interior of the Dallas Cowboy football stadium, a pastoral scene of fir-scented woods, new lenticular pieces and the ever-popular giant world and national map posters.
