Wide format technology pioneer, Roland DG, will be exhibiting at the inaugural Retail Design Expo at Olympia, London from 10th – 11th March, sharing a stand (H1) with leading wide format consumables supplier and partner, Doro Tape UK Ltd.
Says Rob Goleniowski, Business Manager - Sign & Graphics, Roland DG: “The retail design sector is in a hugely transformative stage, driven in large part by advances in technology right across the industry. With its ability to cost-effectively print on an extraordinary range of textiles and substrates, wide format technology is playing a key role in this transformation, giving designers, architects, retailers, visual merchandisers and shop fitters the power to be as creative, dynamic and innovative as they want to be.
“However, many visitors to this show will still be unaware of the real potential of wide format technology and the extensive range of additional creative services and customised applications they are able offer their retail clients. As such, the Retail Design Expo is going to give us a prime opportunity to introduce both Roland and Doro Tape to an audience and industry we believe could harness and maximise all the incredible potential wide format technologies have to offer. We are very excited and pleased to be attending this show and look forward to two great days at Olympia.”
