IFRA Expo 2009
Erwin van Rossen, Sales Executive at Q.I.Press Controls, says on Thursday: “It was a very good show this year for our company – better than last year. We got orders from Finland, Sweden, Spain, the U.K. and Germany, for about 1.5 million Euros in total. We will certainly be in Hamburg next year.“
The blog team and the women from the Agfa stand wave goodbye to all our readers and wish them a safe trip home. And most importantly: We hope to see you again next year in Hamburg at IFRA Expo 2010.
The blog team is also excited to announce that we had more than 1100 page views per day. We thank all our readers for their attention.
The last day of an Expo is traditionally the weakest -- but that does not apply to the exhibitors. They use the last day of the show to do some networking among themselves. Julia von Kuester, Account Manager at Sensix, Germany, visits the Leomedia stand to meet Sales Director Stephen Lang, to chat and to grab one of their little stuffed lions. Their opinion is that the overall outcome of the Expo is positive. They had very interesting conversations.
Thursday the International Newspaper Color Quality Club Tutorial took place, and according to the delegation from the Nikkan Offset Corp. from Osaka, Japan, it was very interesting. Since their main difficulty was the language, they hope for more seminars and tutorials in non-European languages, in their case Japanese.
Jens Kunde, director of sales and marketing at Draabe Industrietechnik, Hamburg, Germany, expected more visitors. However, he says that those who came were the real decision-makers, so it was quality over quantity this time, and he will be back for the next IFRA Expo.
WoodWing's Manfred Witteman is all smiles Thursday afternoon after the company's announcement at IFRA Expo that Komsomolskaya Pravda, one of Russia's largest newspapers, has ordered WoodWing's Enterprise Content Publishing Platform.
