327 exhibitors and 12,100 trade visitors saw new records set at last year’s viscom Frankfurt 2012. The event moves city every other year and changes it name; this year viscom düsseldorf 2013 takes place 7th to 9th November 2013.
viscom Director Petra Lassahn told us “As in the previous years, we focus on two aspects: on the one hand, we bring together the right companies and target groups, on the other to offer a high-calibre supporting programme with examples of best practices to demonstrate the capabilities of visual communication.”
We believe that around 200 exhibitors to date have signed up, with 70% of the area in the viscom halls 8a and 8b of the Düsseldorf Exhibition Centre already occupied.
The overall majority of exhibitors of course are the most important companies from the printing industry; Agfa Graphics, Canon, Epson, Fujifilm Sericol, Hewlett-Packard, Hexis, Igepa Group, Karl Gröner, Mimaki-nbn, Multi-Plot, Mutoh, Roland DG Benelux, Seiko Instruments or Spandex/Brunner BUT there are rumours that both LG Electronics and NEC Display Solutions may be participating,
The viscom World of Inspiration returns once again also – an area of the show which offers know-how and best practices in the form of, for instance, a materials exhibition, the nominated digital signage projects as well as a comprehensive lecture programme.
Last year, the highlight was the replica of a supermarket where exhibitors had the opportunity to present their new products in a true-to-life setting.
