Exhibitors Testimonials

“I was very impressed by the level of customers who attended and we had some very meaningful discussions with them. It is definitely a worthwhile event for the UK industry. The exhibition, the conference and the workshops generated food for thought on how people can grow their businesses”.

Gerard Heanue, managing director, Heidelberg UK

“From our perspective, if the goal of the event was to inspire, initiate and innovate, then certainly over the two days we ticked that box based on the conversations we had. We embraced the ethos of the show – the visitors to our stand had too, we had some great conversations, and I think the marriage of an exhibition with a very strong conference and workshop programme gave visitors the ability to not just to see, but to also hear and discuss opportunities”.

Kevin O’Donnell, head of marketing – Xerox Graphic Communications and Production Systems - UK, Ireland and The Nordics

“PrintWeekLive! - for a debut exhibition, the quality of organisation, exhibitors and visitor numbers were excellent. I can see this show going from strength to strength”.

Graham Harris, managing director, Tech-ni-Fold

“PrintWeekLive! was a success. We enjoyed discussing print with visitors and learning further how we can help them achieve their goals with their businesses”.

Barrie Street, national showroom manager, Canon UK

“The feedback from the team was that it was fantastic, that it had a really nice feel to it and felt like the print shows of old. The qua lity of the audience was really good, we had lots of conversations with decision-makers, they were interested and the education vibe of the event meant that there was a great buzz, people were talking about working together. Our workshops went down really well too and were well attended”.

Amanda Newman, marketing manager, Tharstern

“You can get thousands of people coming past at shows, but if they’re not really interested in taking those ideas back to their businesses, then it seems like you’re busy [as an exhibitor], but the quality of the interactions is not high. But pretty much everyone we saw [at PWL!] we had in-depth conversations with, which was really good”.

James Jarvis, channel director, Antalis

“For us it was a great event. It felt like there was a good number of attendees and had a really good mixture of customers talking about transactions and suppliers talking to us about opportunities. I thought it was a good networking event. I suspect a lot of people didn’t really know what it would shape up to be, but for us the cost of attendance was more than rewarded by the customers we saw and the conversations we had”.

David Bunker, assistant managing director of Close Brothers Asset Finance’s print division

Vistors Testimonials

“I thought I would pop in to show my face but ended up spending around five hours there talking to many industry peers in the form of clients, suppliers and the friendly competition”.

Patrick Headley, chief executive, GI Solutions Group

“The dynamic of the show worked really well, with a good blend of conferences, exhibitors and chance to discuss future purchases with vendors and financial personnel alike under one roof. A big success for PW and we would certainly attend again”.

Andy Galloway, managing director, Galloways

“Thanks for your continued contribution towards giving this industry the credit it deserves. If PrintWeek are prepared to go out on a limb and put something other than “another show” together, then for those individuals and businesses that are prepared to invest time and money, there are huge benefits and rewards”.

Adrian Tolley, operations director, Prime Group

“It was very good, very well attended. I was motivated to attend just to see what’s out there, to keep my knowledge up in print, to keep my hand in. Being a buyer we need to see what new technologies are out there and what’s coming up. It was definitely useful”.

Simon Reynolds, print buyer, Carnival UK

“We went because we wanted to see a couple of the suppliers, but actually the seminars were very interesting too. It was good because it wasn’t too big, it was a nice size. You could get around it in a day which was good. I’d come back next year, just to see where the market’s going”.

Rebecca Petrie, director, Simply Design & Print
