The event ran from March 13th to 15th at the Canon Customer Experience Center in Venlo, The Netherlands, and welcomed visitors from a number of countries.

Those in attendance were treated to demonstrations of both Canon colour and mono cutsheet digital print technologies, including the Océ VarioPrint i-series and imagePRESS C10000VP and C850 series presses, as well as the varioPRINT 140 and Océ VarioPrint 6000 TITAN presses.

Customers interested in wide-format kit were also able to view the Océ Colorado 1640 roll-to-roll printer featuring Canon UVgel technology, in addition to the Océ Arizona flatbed series.

Aside from kit demonstrations, visitors heard from a number of expert speakers, including leading innovation expert Danny Meki,c and innovation and modern management specialist Lars Sudmann.

With digital print, publishers can produce significantly smaller quantities to trial a title, and order further reprints depending on how successfully it sells

In addition, visitors were given an insight into how Canon customers use their kit to the fullest, with a number of users in attendance to speak about their experiences.  

One of which was Latvian book producer Livonia Print, whose managing director Trond Erik Isakse said: “With digital print, publishers can produce significantly smaller quantities to trial a title, and order further reprints depending on how successfully it sells.

“We want to give publishers the opportunity to print exactly what they need from an asset store of prepared digital files, and even to extend this print-on-demand capability directly to the book store.”
