Hybrid Services, the exclusive UK and Irish distributor for Mimaki, has praised this year’s edition of The Print Show, branding the event as the “ideal platform” to reach out to both new and existing customers.

The company has had a presence at the event since its launch in 2015, growing this year-on-year to the point where it took its largest-ever floorspace this year.

Brett Newman, chief operations manager at Hybrid, said this larger presence at the 2018 show enabled the company to bring more Mimaki hardware to the event, as well as better support its reseller partners that were also in attendance.

“The Print Show 2018 was a great follow-on from 2017’s event where Hybrid launched the Mimaki UCJV Series LED UV printer/cutter,” Newman says.

“This year’s show was the perfect opportunity to present the two new smaller models in the range, which understandably drew crowds to the stand.

“We also showed off a great selection of kit from Mimaki’s considerable line-up, including popular wide format printers and cutters, as well as small and grand format flatbed printers and even one of the company’s textile systems.”

Looking ahead to the 2019 event, Newman is keen for Hybrid to “continue its long relationship” with The Print Show.

He says: “As with all the previous Print Shows Hybrid has attended, we took advantage of an ideal platform with which to meet new and existing customers—especially from within the commercial printing sector, in order to demonstrate Mimaki’s breadth of innovative products.

“Hybrid looks forward to continuing its long relationship with The Print Show, having been involved with every iteration of the event since it commenced in 2015.”
