Spring 2014: On the Road

ON THE ROAD WITH AMERICAN PRINTER

AT IPEX IN LONDON

Many big vendors didn’t participate at IPEX 2014, but the show featured news from Konica, Xeikon, LumeJet, MGI and Fujifilm and drew respectable crowds. “Everyone was holding their breath on the Monday morning, and it wasn’t long before there were a lot of smiling people around,” reports Sara Miflin, European MD OutputLinks UK. “The venue, ExCel—although not the easiest to get to—did give a modern, warm and bright feel to the show as soon as you arrived. There was a very international feel as you walked around, supported by the figures showing nearly a 50% split, and there was a continuous busy feel.”

Industry guru and frequent contributor Frank Romano deserves plaudits for making the trip across the Atlantic for the show, which ran from March 19 to March 24. He is famously averse to flying—despite serving in the Naval Air Reserves in the 1960s. Frank’s preferred method of transportation—the Queen Mary 2—wasn’t an option this time. So, as documented above, for the first time in at least 25 years, Frank Romano flew on an airplane. Now that is dedication!

AT DSCOOP9 IN ORLANDO

It was an OutputLinks reunion in Orlando March 6–March 8 at Dscoop9. Katherine O’Brien, Dennis Mason and Andy and Julie Plata were all there. “It was a wonderfully positive experience for us,” says Andy and Julie. “This was a community focused on enhancing the value of print to enhance the business of print. Mike Fogarty, the new Dscoop global executive director, his staff, the Dscoop Board and the many volunteers are to be commended.” Dennis and Katherine share their thoughts in this issue starting on p. 28.

AT XPLOR, ALSO IN ORLANDO

Xplor began 30+ years ago as an education platform for people who needed to make the technology work, and this year’s conference seemed to return to those roots, according to Andy and Julie Plata, Co-CEOs, the OutputLinks Communications Group. Xploration 2014, which took place from March 25 to 27 was not about the fastest and shiniest equipment. There were sessions on sales, regulatory compliance, the cloud, social media, augmented reality and digital mail,” say the Platas. “But most of the sessions we attended emphasized making a company’s existing software and hardware work more effectively and efficiently.”

AT GOA IN MIAMI

Graphics of the Americas (GOA) returned to Miami this past February and drew a diverse audience from North America, Latin America and beyond. Conference organizers reported that exhibit space and attendance grew by 23% and 14%, respectively, over 2013 figures. It was a busy show for Andy and Julie Plata, Dennis Mason, Aaron Kiel and the rest of our team. The OutputLinks Communications Group (OLGroup), publisher of American Printer, produced GOA’s official conference newspaper—before, during and after the event—through its ExpoNewZ division.
