The organisers of Viscom are looking for entries for the Viscom Best of 2012 Awards. Companies in the signmaking, large format print, advertising, textile finishing and software industries can enter their products for the Awards up until 15th August 2012. All exhibitors at Viscom Frankfurt 2012 are eligible for participation and the competition is open to both manufacturers and distributors who have obtained the manufacturer’s consent.
A flag with micro perforations for improved air permeability, ultra-slim light-diffusing lenses illuminated with LEDs, printers with a wide range of sophisticated features for digital printing and advertising technology, or removable self-adhesive foil: the winners of the Viscom Best of Award offer genuine added value and demonstrate the innovative strength of the exhibitors at the International Trade Fair for Visual Communication, Technology and Design. This year, Viscom is again looking for the very best of the product innovations presented at the fair, with a view to putting them into the limelight for the approximately 11,000 expected visitors.
LEDtec GmbH, was one of last year's winners. “For us as a young company, the viscom Best of 2011 Award was a huge success! Thanks to the reports in the relevant trade magazines, our light panels with laser technology were widely discussed, and we were able to make interesting contacts and realise projects resulting from them! We will definitely be back again at viscom 2012 in Frankfurt," says Marcus Zauner, marketing manager of LEDtec GmbH. The company impressed the jury in the 'Light Advertising' category with its light-diffusing lenses illuminated with LEDs.
Roland DG Benelux equally benefitted from winning the award. Marketing manager Timo Keersmaekers comments, “It is an honour to win the viscom Best of Award. The award is a great help when advertising new machines and generates additional press attention. The award will continue to be of major relevance in future. Winning the viscom Award always has a positive effect on business.” The company received the award for the VersaSTUDIO BN-20, a versatile desktop printer.
Fabian Kehrenberg of Fahnen Herold, one of the winners in the Large Format Printing/LFP category, besides Mimaki-nbh GmbH and Neschen AG, adds, “The main reason for competing for the viscom Award was the fact that we are very convinced of the benefits of the new material we developed. And of course we also wanted to prove our innovative spirit and demonstrate that in the field of textile advertising you can also come up with successful new products again and again, if you keep working on it. The experience gained in the meantime confirms this expectation: the STORMFRIEND flag material shows a noticeably improved durability compared to conventional materials. We were pleasantly surprised that the product was particularly well accepted in the Arab market.”
Products entered for the 2012 Awards must have been launched during the period between viscom Düsseldorf 2011 and viscom Frankfurt 2012. The winner companies will have their awards presented at viscom frankfurt 2012 during “viscom night”.
