s Demo Days Roadshow truck made the first stop on its nationwide tour at Pacific Coast Sign Supply in Damascus, OR, enabling area print professionals to meet exclusively with product experts and see the company’s latest digital imaging devices in action.
The two-day stop gave attendees the chance to set up pre-arranged appointments and interactive product demos, with safety and social distancing protocols in place.
According to John Reinke, owner of Pacific Coast Sign Supply, the first Roland DGA roadshow was a big success.
“With physical trade shows canceled everywhere due to the pandemic, partnering with Roland DGA allowed us to bring the latest products to prospective customers in a safe and effective manner,” said Reinke. “It created an excellent environment for demonstrating Roland DG’s newest technologies, while also allowing us to discuss specific customer needs and how these cutting-edge devices can help them build their business.”
The personal appointments at Pacific Coast Sign Supply gave area PSPs the opportunity to see recently introduced Roland DG products that they might normally attend a trade show to see, like the new TrueVIS VF2 wide-format printer featuring Green and Orange ink, the VersaUV LEC2 UV printer/cutter, and the VersaUV LEF2 UV flatbed printer.
In addition, attendees were able to get “hands-on” with some of these devices to create souvenir items they could take home from the event.
Pacific Coast Sign Supply is also one of a select group of authorized dealers with Roland DGA’s IU-1000F high-volume flatbed on-site, which allowed roadshow attendees to get up close and personal with this new production printer as well.
Roland DGA has also released additional dates and locations for its Demo Days Roadshow schedule further into 2020, for a total of six stops so far and more coming soon. The next stop will be Sept. 22-24 at the Sign Outlet Store in Lisle, IL, followed by stops in Brooklyn Heights, Ohio, Wakefield, MA, Roanoke, VA, and Orlando, FL.
