Xplor 2003 TORRANCE, Calif.--Nov. 19, 2003-- Xplor 2003 Global Conference & Exhibit held in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, continues to receive high praise from participating exhibitors nearly a month after the four-day show and educational forum ended. Also, Xplor announced revised dates for the 2004 Global Conference & Exhibit, which will now take place October 24-27, 2004, at the Dallas Convention Center in Dallas, Texas, USA. The move to one week later will assist Xplor's participating exhibitors in booth staffing and freight shipments for Xplor 2004 during the busy month of October. -- "Homi" Shamir, President & CEO, Scitex Digital Printing (www.scitexdpi.com): "Once again we at Scitex Digital Printing consider our participation in the Xplor Global Conference and Exhibit to be a rousing success. We are continually impressed by the consistent quality of the attendees each year at Xplor, and the traffic in our booth this year was fantastic. Xplor provided the perfect environment for the introduction and demonstration of our new products. The ability to spend quality time with attendees and share information and ideas that enable their organizations to be more productive and profitable is invaluable. The conference program that Xplor puts on is second to none and allows Scitex Digital Printing to share our knowledge as well as to learn from customer experiences." -- Paul Edwards, CDC, President, FormStore Incorporated (www.formstore.com): "I have attended the Xplor conference and exhibits for the last 15 years. Our first time to exhibit was 2003, and we were very impressed by the quality and quantity of those who visited our booth. As a rapidly growing manufacturer of laser printable ID Card Solutions, we were also very pleased with the number of international attendees. Xplor has been a very profitable exhibit for FormStore Incorporated. We are looking forward to expanding our exhibit presence at Xplor 2004 in Dallas." -- Carl Joachim, Vice President, Oce Printing Systems USA (www.oceprinting.com): "As a sponsor of the Education Pavilion, we were pleased to help Xplor focus on industry education in a state-of-the-art learning environment. Just as we custom-configure solutions for each customer, the presentations were custom-configured to the business and technology needs of the Xplor audience, and it was a great benefit for all those who attended the show -- vendors and attendees alike. We were pleased with the quality of those who participated in the show." -- BJ Cobuluis, lead generation manager, Exstream Software (www.exstream.com): "Xplor is the one show again and again that we as a company can depend on to draw the right audience of potential buyers Exstream is looking for. It is great to know that Xplor continues to draw the audience base that Exstream sees as our future customer base. We look forward to exhibiting every year. This year's Xplor audience was by far the best group of potential opportunities that we have seen." -- Jack Nelson, COO, Intelegroupe International (www.mavim.com): "As a first-time exhibitor, introducing a new product to North America and most of Europe, we were very pleased and excited by the number of attendees that stopped by our booth and showed serious interest in our business process design and publication software (Mavim). While discussing our product and performing the demos, the interaction and questions between the attendees and our staff were, quite frankly, tremendous. This in and of itself proves the quality of the people that the Xplor show attracts. We were also very grateful for the international exposure and interest we received, as a large number of attendees from outside of the US were also very enthusiastic about our product. Our hats go off to the entire Xplor organization for a job well done!" Nearly 5,000 individuals congregated at the four-day conference and exhibit in Atlanta to attend the 100+ educational sessions, network with industry leaders and confirm business deals on the exhibit hall packed with more than 110 exhibitors.
