HP has themed its exhibit at drupa 2012 “Print Your Future". The company will showcase a new portfolio of digital printing solutions, workflow solutions, business-development resources and financing options all designed to help print service providers (PSPs) achieve profitable growth.
"The 'Print Your Future' theme reflects our promise to help PSP customers create a relevant and profitable future of print," said Christopher Morgan, senior vice-president, Graphics Solutions Business, HP. "Our strongest ever drupa portfolio will benefit customers for the print jobs they do today as well as those of tomorrow."
The 4,952 square meter HP stand(Hall 4 of Messe Düsseldorf) will feature printing demonstrations for general commercial, photo specialty, publishing, direct mail and transactional applications as well as labels, flexible packaging and folding cartons, and signs and displays.
HP will demonstrate 10 digital printing systems from the HP Indigo, HP Inkjet Web Press, HP Scitex and HP Specialty Printing Systems product lines which will be featured in end-to-end production workflows alongside HP partner software and finishing solutions.
The drupa exhibit will also show server and software solutions from the HP Exstream, HP Hiflex and HP SmartStream portfolios and print output from its systems in real-life settings, such as supermarkets and bookstores.
HP's exhibit includes a full complement of educational modules, business tools, community networks, market development activities and one-to-one consulting services delivered through the HP Capture business-development programme.
