The Australian print industry’s first virtual expo, the Print, Sign, Display & Graphics Virtual Trade Show, has brought on Prytec Solutions as its latest exhibitor.
Prytec Solutions will showcase its PLS-51515 1kW Advanced Fibre Laser System as its centerpiece. The solution is a fully enclosed, fibre laser system which the company says offers superior sheet metal cutting accuracy, with greater precision, power and speed than all its predecessors.
Boasting a wide range of applications in metal processing, including mild steel, stainless steel, aluminium alloy and more, it’s a versatile and productive machine which has enormous potential for a wide range of applications.
The system employs a high-accuracy fibre laser source with 1000W power and high-precision operation which delivers superior edge quality while operating at consistently high cutting speeds. Designed for ease of use, efficiency and safety, the machine has a fully-enclosed protective cover with lifting door and safety interlocks, a drawer-type working table and automatic exhaust extraction system, among other features.
The Print, Sign, Display & Graphics Virtual Trade Show has also announced more than 5,000 visits clocked since its launch two weeks ago.
Peter Harper, CEO of supplier association Visual Connections, which introduced the show as a way to ‘bridge the gap’ between physical trade shows in the current era of event and social distancing restrictions, said an initial burst of more than 1,600 visits on the first day had settled into steady traffic since.
“Naturally, we expected the novelty value to attract a few people when we first launched, but the numbers on day one surprised and delighted us, particularly as reports of increased website traffic, engagement and genuine sales leads from exhibitors proved that the interest was genuine,” Harper says.
“Analysis of the numbers show a good spread of visitors around the show, with every stand receiving a pleasing level of interest, and plenty of visitors also taking the opportunity to watch the first five virtual seminars and workshops.”
Harper also noted that visitor numbers were particularly strong over the Queen’s Birthday long weekend.
“That’s the beauty of an online show, of course – people can visit when they have a bit of time, and they can drop in from wherever they are, simply at the click of a button! Each stand is different, with everything from product demo videos and expert product commentary, to downloadable brochures, photo galleries and links, as well as special show discounts and offers which are proving very popular.
“The virtual format, together with the extended nature of the show, gives exhibitors the chance to add new features, specials and limited-time offers – they’re really embracing the opportunities, so we hope that people will continue to check in regularly to make sure they don’t miss anything new.”
The virtual trade show is available 24 hours a day from June to September. To access the virtual trade show, click here then browse the online floorplan to see all the content from the featured exhibitors.
