Staging of Press Conference
On the first day of PRINT 17, we held a press conference from 1:00 pm (local time) to announce our efforts related to the products we have on display. The conference was attended by more than 40 journalists from countries worldwide. Taking the stage were SCREEN Graphic Solutions Co., Ltd. President Tsuneo Baba, along with three top representatives from SCREEN GP Americas, LLC: President Yoji Otsuka, Vice-President Ken Ingram, and Marketing Director Mark Schlimme. They provided an in-depth introduction to the many new products, functions and other highlights on display at our stand and also outlined various topics currently affecting the industry.
