Duplo is hailing November’s London Calling show a success after deals worth almost £750,000 were signed at the two-day event, with a pipeline of new sales prospects created for the print finishing leader and its partners Antalis, Apogee, BPIF, Fujifilm, Grafitec, Infigo, Neopost, Proskills, Renz and Vivid.
The first deal signed by Duplo was with Rapidity, which has ordered a Duplo iSaddle Booklet System for its central London HQ. Duplo also signed deals with Manor Printing Services of Wooton-under Edge, Gloucestershire, for a Duplo iSaddle Booklet System; and with The Print Centre in Berkhamsted for a Duplo 600i Booklet System. One of Duplo’s newly launched booklet systems was also ordered by Enfield-based MPC Printing Solutions.
Hundreds of visitors attended the two-day exhibition at Sunbeam Studios, in Ladbroke Hall, North Kensington, which this year had a 007 theme. Highlights included seven product launches, the inaugural London meeting of the Duplo Owners Club, a meeting of the HP Young Entrepreneurs Network, a BPIF Apprentices Forum and a PrintIT! School visit.
