SGIA Roundup

We just wrapped up our big fall show – SGIA – for color, UV, cutter & engraving products. And with the recent introduction of the new Pro4 XR-640 at the center, it looked like it would be a good show. Turns out, it was. With record attendance over 22,000, the show was packed. Not just at the Roland booth, but the whole show seemed to be buzzing with energy. It was as good a show as I’ve seen in some time, and many exhibitors I spoke with at the show echoed the same sentiment. 18%+ of attendees were international. What’s more, some 38% of all attendees were there for the 1st time. What a great first impression they must have had!

One of the things I particularly noticed was just how varied our users are. Even with a class of about 10, we had Roland owners from every region of the US, as well as one from Canada.

Tempted at Every Turn

It happened again. After enjoying my morning oatmeal, I headed off for the Long Beach show and was met with temptation. No… the show wasn’t full of hot guys. But it was full of enthusiastic, creative Roland owners and talking to them makes me want a Roland for myself.
