EFI Confirmed as Founding Exhibitor at EcoPrint 2012
Marcus Timson, Director, EcoPrint: "This news represents an extremely exciting new development for EcoPrint. This new forum style event is challenging the print community to make the shift into sustainability, and we need the leading innovators on board to contribute top quality content and insight. EFI is a leading innovator in the print sector and has a unique level of end-to-end MIS and workflow software expertise that the EFI team will be sharing with the print community at EcoPrint. This will undoubtedly enrich this new event and contribute greatly towards its success."
EFI's decision to participate alongside other leading exhibitors such as HP, Mimaki, Mutoh. D.gen and Ilford Biomedia demonstrates the industry's acceptance of EcoPrint as the vehicle to drive the business of sustainable print forward.
Frank Tueckmantel, VP Corporate Marketing, EFI says: "EcoPrint represents an exciting new opportunity for EFI and the wider industry to define a practical path to sustainability. The EFI portfolio of products is perfectly suited to helping print service providers to reduce waste, improve efficiency and increase profit: the cornerstones of sustainable success. When you add to this the breadth of EFI inkjet innovation, you have a potent mix that will add value to any print shop. One example of such innovation is LED curing with our VUTEk GS3250LX superwide format printer, whose LED lamps use less power, produce less heat and accommodate thinner substrates, allowing printers to limit their environmental impact."
EcoPrint 2012, 26th - 27th September, will feature seminars, debates, discussions and advice for print businesses, creative agencies, marketeers and print buyers who are keen to successfully adopt an environmentally friendly printing strategy. It will be the first exhibition devoted to driving forward the print industry's definition of sustainable products and services for print production. EcoPrint 2012 will focus on applications and the business of sustainability, designed for leaders in the industry, in a unique format which challenges the traditional print trade show model.
