Konica Minolta Plans Worldwide Premiere at PRINTING United
Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. (Konica Minolta) today announced its diamond sponsorship and participation at PRINTING United in Dallas, Texas, October 23 – 25. Konica Minolta is also a silver sponsor for SGIA’s Women in Print Alliance breakfast on Thursday, October 24 at 7:30 a.m.
In its 10,000 square foot booth located in the Commercial and Packaging area, Konica Minolta will showcase its production and industrial print presses, post-press finishing equipment and software solutions used in a wide variety of application areas. The company’s print embellishment partner, MGI, will showcase its series of JETvarnish 3D digital special effects presses, both sheet and roll-fed, all of which feature 2D/3D UV dimensional textures and variable embossed foil capabilities as standalone finishing hubs for digital, offset, gravure and flexo materials.
Konica Minolta has chosen PRINTING United as the stage for an exciting global product announcement that will revolutionize high-volume production digital print. In addition, four other products in packaging, labeling and embellishment will make their U.S. debut at the show.
Konica Minolta’s booth will include an immersive experience showcasing the breadth of its print expertise. The exhibit will bring to life its highly creative solutions, demonstrating how printers can rethink color, embellishment, packaging, wide format, and finishing to create unforeseen value for their business. Konica Minolta will also participate in the Experience Zone, a unique opportunity provided by PRINTING United that will enable printers and converters to see the end applications that Konica Minolta makes possible.
“Being able to access the largest amount of people and the broadest audience is important for us, and the show will enable us to activate our brand and also to create an environment where our sales teams can bring in customers and prospects to further develop relationships to assist with lead generation,” said Kay Fernandez, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Konica Minolta. “We are extremely excited about the experience we have planned for our customers. You don’t want to miss this!”
Additionally, Konica Minolta will use this opportunity to support its charity partner, the National Kidney Foundation, and its dedication to the awareness, prevention and treatment of kidney disease. A special corporate social responsibility initiative will include a donation of $1 for every visitor badge scanned at the booth. The company will also activate to create awareness for National Kidney Foundation kidney walks, in particular the walk on Sunday, November 10 in New York City, at which Konica Minolta’s President and CEO Rick Taylor will serve as co-chair.
