Gulf Print & Pack is a unique event for commercial and packaging printing in the Middle East and North Africa. The exhibition, which took place from April 8th to 11th, 2013 in Dubai Convention and Exhibition Center, brought together the latest developments in machinery technology and materials for the printing and packaging industries. Furthermore, it was an exceptional opportunity to launch new products, perform live demonstrations and exhibit the latest breakthroughs in the industries.

Printkom brought its participation to Gulf Print & Pack 2013 through five members. Throughout the 4 days, the team members were present at Canon stand which had the largest presence ever (1000 sqm stand). The stand brought together the different products in Canon portfolio as well as Océ products which are currently incorporated in the Canon portfolio, in addition to different third party software and finishing solutions that can be integrated with Canon print engines. It should also be mentioned that Canon was the gold sponsor of the Gulf Print and Pack 2013.

There were two workflow stations running live demos of the Kodak INSITE Prepress Portal System and Kodak PRINERGY 6 Workflow systems. Demonstrations were also done on the Kodak Trendsetter CTP system along with the NX features for high quality flexo production.

During the show, the team welcomed the Lebanese customers on both Canon and Kodak stands and showed them the various printing solutions exhibited which can enhance the businesses, increase productivity and develop new opportunities.
