We are excited to be back at PRINTING United,” said Ken Hanulec, EFI’s vice president of worldwide marketing. “It’s a wonderful community, and the biggest opportunity we have in North America to connect and showcase all our latest innovations across multiple verticals. From updates to our single-pass technology to new applications, visitors will be excited about what we have to share.”
“We’re also happy to have Fiery, LLC joining us in our booth this year, speaking with visitors about the benefits of Fiery-driven printers and showing them live demonstrations of the value of Fiery ® DFEs and workflows,” Hanulec said.
