Esko, the leading global provider of software and hardware solutions for the packaging industry, showcased its latest developments in prepress and automation software at the recent Print4All event in Milan.
Held from May 3-6 at Fiera Milano, Print4All is a crucial show in the Italian market, and one that the entire Italian team was delighted to attend in person following a year where many trade shows and expos were forced to move online.
“Print4All was a tremendous success for us and for the customers we connected with,” said Giovanni Vigone, Esko Regional Business Manager. “Everyone in attendance was there with a renewed enthusiasm following the lengthy break enforced by Covid, and it was a great feeling to be there and to reconnect with customers and colleagues. Our stand was in a prime location and we were thrilled to welcome so many visitors to our booth, performing a number of live demos across the four days and meeting with lots of old and new faces throughout the event.
“With our latest software release unveiled recently, we used the booth to demonstrate the productivity and efficiency gains that can be enjoyed by integrating solutions such as Automation Engine and WebCenter into the prepress workflow, or how Esko ArtPro+ and Flexo Engine can deliver consistent quality to our customers, and subsequently to their own.
“The event was a huge success for us, with our team entertaining a number of customers and generating positive discussions each day. And, of course, having the chance to get on stage with a live microphone to demonstrate our solutions was great for the business and for the team personally,” he said.
Following the cancellation of LabelExpo Europe, which was due to take place in Brussels in April, Print4All took on increased importance for the European printing and converting industries.
“All in all, it was just great to be back at a live expo to connect face to face with our customers again,” reflected Giovanni. “The last few years have been uniquely challenging for our sector, and we look forward to building relationships with the customers we met there. We will definitely return for the next Print4All in 2025!”
