New 3M Wrap Film Series 2080 and the Avery Dennison Supreme Wrapping Film six new colours showcased in the Vehicle Wrap Zone created a great buzz with customers, who were interested to see the films in action and ask questions.
Application techniques for 3M, Avery Dennison and Arlon digital print wrap films were also demonstrated on the day, with the opportunity for people to get hands on.
As always, the Architextural Zone was a hit with customers looking to access new market opportunities. The area presented the concept of architectural wrapping, displayed the huge range of films and patterns available and demonstrated wrapping with 3M DI-NOC and Cover Styl’.
And, to really open customer’s minds to the endless creative opportunities with Architextural finishes; tours were available of four Architextural Showrooms.
