Spandex announces Open House

Spandex LogoSpandex has announced that its next highly informative open house will take place in Bristol on November 26th and 27th 2009. The event will focus on helping existing and potential customers succeed in today's economy and will follow the company's successful theme of 'Learn, Discover and Benefit'.

The two-day open house will comprise key seminars, including, 'Succeeding in today's economy' by Vaughan Allcock, owner of Event Signs, a 25-year-old signmaking business. Author and marketing consultant, Jackie Jarvis, is also returning to the event to deliver her new presentation, 'How to sell the natural way to attract and keep more customers'.

"Our November Open House has been specifically designed to help customers improve sales and profitability, widen their service capability and obtain information about which equipment will provide the best return on investment", says Phil McMullin, Spandex's UK Country Manager. "Given the popularity of our previous open houses, we would strongly advise those interested to book early to secure a place at the event."

Another highlight of the event will see Spandex hold interactive workshops designed to assist customers with bringing expertise in-house, thereby reducing costs and widening their range of services. One such workshop will focus on textile marking and enable customers to try heat presses and Spandex's broad and exciting range of textile marking materials. Other workshops will cover vehicle wrapping; lamination techniques; fixings and fastenings; and new techniques in modular sign systems.

The open-house will also see Spandex demonstrate the revenue-enhancing capabilities and unique benefits of its major large format digital printing systems via live and invaluable product demonstrations. Among the latest machines on display will be the new Epson Stylus Pro GS6000, a 64", high-speed, eight-colour inkjet printer; and the new Mutoh Kona, a cost effective and flexible plotter. The event will see Spandex demonstrate both systems for the first time. The Gerber Solara ion, a flatbed/roll-to-roll, wideformat, UV inkjet printer featuring advanced GerberCAT cationic inks and Cold Fire Cure technology will also be on display.

Also on show will be a wide selection of new products from media brands including Avery, 3M and Mactac, as well as the company's own ImagePerfect range. The event will allow visitors to access materials specialists who will be on-hand to provide information on new substrates, as well as offer useful printing tips and techniques for various large format printing applications.

A number of special promotions, exclusive to the Open House, will be running on the day. Visitors can pre-register for the event by following www.spandex.co.uk/openhouse.
