Commenting on the exhibition, Rob Goleniowski, Business Manager – Sign & Graphics, Roland DG, said: “The retail design sector is in a hugely transformative stage, driven in large part by advances in technology right across the industry. With its ability to cost-effectively print on to awide range of textiles and substrates, wide format technology is playing a key role in this transformation, giving designers, architects, retailers, visual merchandisers and shop fitters the power to be as creative, dynamic and innovative as they want to be.
He added: “However, many visitors to this show will still be unaware of the real potential of wide format technology and the extensive range of additional creative services and customised applications they are able offer their retail clients. As such, the Retail Design Expo is going to give us a prime opportunity to introduce both Roland and Doro Tape to an audience and industry we believe could harness and maximise all the potential wide format technologies have to offer.”
James Carpenter, Managing Director of Doro Tape UK,said: “I feel this is an exciting opportunity for us to promote our excellent range of decorative and printable films. Doro Tape already has a good foothold in the retail industry with a number of famous high street names using their films for shop design and POS purposes. Hopefully, the bright and colourful stand that we will be sharing with Roland DG will help to open many more eyes in the retail design sector to the huge possibilities of using printable and decorative films in conjunction with the Roland VersaCAMM VS-i print & cut machine.”
