As we get ready to join our colleagues at the 2017 PIA President's Conference, we'll be bringing the message that our own president and CEO of Koenig & Bauer AG, Claus Bolza-Schunemann, announced after drupa last year: "Print is on the rise again."
It's been less than a year since drupa 2016, and our company is still maintaining momentum from the show. After some challenging years, print made a dynamic comeback in Dusseldorf with proven products, new technologies, and even more applications. The high numbers and nationalities of the visitors as well as the positive mood in the show's halls revealed the bright future of our industry.
Our company's presence at drupa received much praise. Visitors were drawn to our innovative one-stop-shop that featured digital, flexo, and offset printing as part of our well-attended live demonstrations. Experts from around the globe could ask for print samples straight off the press and had the opportunity to have some crucial questions competently answered. We were clearly focused on growth markets like digital, packaging, and LED-UV printing for the commercial space. It was plain to see that the KBA Group is actively working on solidifying its strong position in the packaging market.
If you weren't able to attend drupa, we are bringing it to you with our interactive website, KBA @ drupa. We think you'll enjoy this virtual experience.
KBA, like other manufacturers, has done its homework and adapted to new market realities. We're continuing to invest in new technologies, future-focused products, and new markets. Sitting amid other business owners, presidents, CEOs, and their executive management teams at the PIA President's Conference gives us the opportunity to share our upbeat mood and learn what others are thinking.
