Amaya’s three-day open event in February at its Nottingham showroom was a great success for both customers and participants.
The show included live demonstrations of all Amaya’s equipment together with technical workshops on both the Texjet DTG printers and the Melco modular embroidery machines. The Roland print & cut and UV equipment was very popular together with the OKI white toner printers and Forever laser transfer papers. A selection of Stahls’ heat presses was also on display.
In the Kornit Digital showroom there were fully working demonstrations of the Kornit Atlas system together with a workflow presentation each day showing how Kornit X can benefit any print on-demand business.
During the event customers also had the opportunity to meet with other suppliers including PenCarrie, Madeira and David Sharp. Dominic Bunce of David Sharp said: “It was a great turn out in spite of the rough weather, and great to see some faces, old and new for the first time in so many months.”
Talks were given by industry experts including Karen Burrows of Madeira, Phil Oakley of Kornit, Alex Cunliffe of Inkthreadable and Amaya’s very own Julian Wright. There was a surprisingly good interest in these talks.
ID Custom Designs said of their visit: “We both thought the day was great, really informative and we picked up some great hints and tips from John Harrison and Adam Barr who were both fantastic. The seminar with Julian Wright was very informative and we garnered some really good advice. We also enjoyed the Kornit micro factory in action, seeing the systems first hand was a real eye opener.”
To conclude Charlotte Darling at Amaya summed up the three days: “We are really pleased with how the event went. Holding it on a Sunday was a big draw for customers who just can’t take time out of their working week to focus on growing their business. We were most surprised at the interest in the industry expert talks and intend to expand this in the future to include business advice, marketing, e-commerce platforms and more. Thanks to everyone who came and look out for news of more dates at our southern facility and again in Nottingham later in the year.”
