Canon South Africa dazzled Africa Print 2015 (22-24 July) visitors yet again, with one of the most interactive and frenetically busy stands at the show. Canon’s first sale at the expo went to WetINK, which purchased the imagePRESS C800 Colour Digital Press. Canon also won the award for Best Mega Floor Space stand.
Jon Smith from WetINK said, ‘We are a fine art printing company so we needed a machine with excellent quality, and the imagePRESS C800 met these requirements. The machine also allows us to print on a wide range of substrates.’
Canon’s dynamic stand was a hive of activity throughout the exhibition, with visitors flocking to see, touch and experience some of Canon’s latest innovations.
Canon even invited some of South Africa’s legendary Springboks to take to the soapbox at its stand. Some of the iconic ex-Boks who gave short talks were Stefan Terreblanche and Corné Krige. Visitors simply lapped up the opportunity to listen to them speak.
Well-known young, up and coming referee, Marius van der Westhuizen, entertained the visiting crowd with his talk titled ‘People who adapted to change the fastest and best are the ones currently at the top of their game’.
Hundreds of visitors were entertained and enlightened at the Canon stand. For Canon SA and Océ SA, this was the first time that the two companies have represented as one since Canon SA acquired Océ SA.
The stand presented an invaluable platform for the two companies to demonstrate their latest, combined innovations, and chat to people about the plans for the future. Canon is also introducing its new Partner Programme, which visitors are keen to hear more about.
