Agfa to Show 'Extremely Vivid Printing' at SGIA 2015
Known throughout the industry for its clever and interactive trade show Application Zones, the Agfa Graphics booth (#3127) will include multiple areas showcasing real-life inkjet applications featuring Extremely Vivid Printing. The SGIA Expo is being held at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta from Nov. 4-6.
Attendees stepping up to the welcome desk will be greeted by a 10-foot high 'Extremely Vivid Printing' graphic output on Duratex Polyfab fabric. The display illustrates how to grab attention with a seemingly moving graphic while showcasing the benefits of textile printing.
Walking through the booth, visitors can get an up-close look at media options for retail windows output on Duratex Window substrates. Agfa Graphics' team of wide-format specialists will be available to answer questions such as the nuances of first- and second-surface printing.
The booth will also feature an all-new 'Application Academy' and interactive cubes attendees can walk-though to experience Extremely Vivid Printing.
"Agfa Graphics' booth is meant to serve as a learning lab for SGIA attendees. The 'Application Academy' is a giant wall of unique and attractive output designed to inspire new business ideas," explained Deborah Hutcheson, director of marketing, Agfa Graphics, North America. "Our approach is to educate print service providers. All the graphics are printed on the Anapurna and Jeti inkjet engines being demonstrated at SGIA. The creative output showcases what is possible and gets PSPs enthusiastic."
Attendees can also experience real-life wide-format applications in the two walk-in interactive cubes outfitted with various Duratex brand and popular media.
Agfa Graphics is one of the only companies with a skilled team of application specialists technically trained to support the vast inkjet media portfolio. Customers value this counsel and rely on Agfa to provide ongoing printing and installation guidance.
