MAN Roland brings drupa to North America with a special interactive website
Press release from the issuing company
Düsseldorf, Germany — North American printers who aren’t able to attend drupa 2004 can pay virtual visits to the world’s largest graphic arts trade show, via a special interactive website developed by MAN Roland Inc.
Accessible via manroland.com, the site will include videos of the live demonstrations MAN Roland is conducting at drupa. It will also provide daily news updates on innovations introduced at the event, as well as deliver the impressions of key North American printers who visit the exposition.
“We’ve designed our site so it’s the next best thing to being there,” says Christian Cerfontaine, Director of Marketing at MAN Roland Inc. “We’ll be releasing a new presentation every day every day of the show, so North American printers should tune in often for the latest news.”
MAN Roland’s drupa website is already up and running. Its introductory features include videos of key MAN Roland products, a link to preshow news, and downloadable maps of drupa and of the MAN Roland exhibit in Hall 6.
MAN Roland is one of the major participants in the PrintCity exhibit, serving as the major source of presses for the working exhibit. “That’s why our special drupa site provides a direct link to PrintCity’s home on the Internet,” Cerfontaine says. “Innovations from 58 different companies will be connected at PrintCity in several fully functional workflows. So by clicking on the demonstrations on our website, you’ll be able to see drupa innovations working in true production environments.”
