Duplo has opted to double its stand size at The Print Show this year in order to showcase more of its products and solutions to the thousands of visitors set to attend.

The finishing specialist is a long-term supporter of the event and after another successful attendance at last year’s show in Telford, will return this year as the exhibition switches back to the NEC in Birmingham.

Andy Benson, managing director at Duplo UK, says the floorplan for The Print Show 2018 is already strong and with plenty more sign-ups expected ahead of September’s event, believe the exhibition will attract a varied audience.

“We like to support the UK industry events and did so with The Print Show in 2017,” Benson said.

“Being back at the NEC is clearly an advantage for most given it’s transport links, and we have agreed to take a stand more than double the size of last year’s to ensure we can show a good representation of the categories and brands we represent in the UK.

“We would hope as many suppliers sign up as possible. It becomes increasingly difficult to drag prospective customers away from the harsh commercial reality of 12/24hr deadlines in their businesses, so with a comprehensive and varied supplier base, any visitor should achieve a real return on their time investment away from their day to day environment.

“From what I’ve seen, a decent array of brands have already committed, and if we can build variety we will attract a broader and more varied potential client base to see us all at the NEC.”

Benson also offered a preview as to what visitors can expect from Duplo at The Print Show 2018.

“We will of course share the art of the possible with Sensory touch through our DuSense product, offering a true differentiator to any quality printer seeking to stand out from the crowd,” Benson said.

“We have one or two new innovations which we plan to showcase, but will share those nearer the time!! With a double sized stand, come and see what you might find to help you with your finishing pinch points.”
