Ryan McManus, Business Development, Manager, Kern, also reported “great energy at GRAPH EXPO. We had several new technologies to share and gave a sneak peek at what will come from Kern in 2012,” says McManus. “Kern has used GRAPH EXPO as the venue to introduce new products, and this year we launched our new electronic document management platform, Kern EDGE. Our booth stayed busy throughout the show with attendees actively looking for solutions and new technologies. With a large number of hot leads our show team left with an optimisticand busy outlook on the remainder of 2011 and into 2012.”

Reflecting on his company’s success at GRAPH EXPO 2011, Virtual Systems’ President Chris Huber states, “We typically don’t go to this show to write business or take orders.

He continued summing up the consensus of feedback received from attendees and exhibitors as, it was ”the most successful GRAPH EXPO show ever.“
Summing up the positive sentiment across the show floor, and his satisfaction with the show in particular, David Murphy, Marketing Director, HP exclaims, ”GRAPH EXPO 2011 was hugely successful for us.“ Looking ahead, Murphy concludes, ”Looks like there’s just 365 days until the next one.
