Philip Faraci, president and chief operating officer of Kodak, said: “We are all here to hand someone you know and love with the Print Achievement Award.”
Gudrun Alex, customer marketing director for Kodak EMEA, said: “It is my pleasure to this give year’s award. This year’s recipient has been in the industry since before many of you were born.
“He has tremendous energy, tremendous knowledge of the industry and technology, and has assisted many manufacturers on technology.”
Romano said the award meant a lot to him, but added: “It is not the awards that matter, but that you have done something that rewards the industry.”
He was joined by fellow industry luminary Andy Tribute, who was honoured with a Lighthouse Award by Kodak chief executive Antonio Perez earlier in the show.
“Andy and I provide something people in the industry need – information,” said Romano.
