ValuePublishing Teil 3 Facts Figures Zielgruppen Reichweite UPDATE ENG.002

“The unique thing about ValuePublishing: We know how to set up multichannel specialist communication in an innovative, smart, sustainable and highly effective manner!”

Mainz/Vienna, at the start of 2016

Information on what is currently the most innovative B2B multichannel communication solution 

Back in 2015, exciting approaches were revealed for us all in discussions with numerous experts and the drupa team at Messe Düsseldorf. The focus: The variety and complexity of the new solutions in the print and paper sector is growing with huge dynamism. Thanks to Industry 4.0 (cyber-physical systems or integrated automation) and the Internet of Things, the current drivers of digitisation, all business and communications processes are being revolutionised at the same time, with the number of challenges growing explosively.

The drupa slogan “Touch the Future” and an ambitious drupa exhibition programme reflect the unheard-of extremely high pace with which astounding changes are taking place. Our current ValuePublishing stories on Heidelberg’s print and paper strategy “Simply Smart” demonstrate in an impressive manner how one can respond to current developments.

  • So the good news about drupa 2016 is: From an expert’s perspective, the print and paper sector is taking on a pioneering role in the digital transformation.
  • The not so good news: The plethora of innovations that are to be seen at this leading exhibition from 31 May 2016 onwards and hence the wealth of information are difficult to take in. At least with the opportunities that we have made use of to date.
  • The solution in our view: Innovative technologies and solutions must also be communicated in a consistently innovative way! In real time. Through multimedia. In a market, customer and demand-orientated manner.

 

ValuePublishing Teil 3 Facts Figures Zielgruppen Reichweite UPDATE ENG.005

 

“Innovative technologies and solutions must also be communicated in a consistently innovative way! In real time. Through multimedia. In a market, customer and demand-orientated manner.”

Our proposal: Make your range of print and paper products and services an important topic of conversation of your customers and their customers even before the exhibition through ValuePublishing! Above all to make early contact with the new target groups relevant to you.

It is only in this way that the necessary decision processes can be greatly accelerated by effective one-to-one exchange of information.

Our high-quality innovative ValuePublishing service is directed accordingly in such a way that pilot projects have already been validated, not only with Heidelberger Druckmaschinen but also with top drupa exhibitors like Canon, Zünd Systemtechnik and multichannel experts of the XMPie User Group with their international experience.

To suit your requirements as an exhibitor we have developed a unique B2B multichannel communication solution that can be used immediately and which is above all highly effective:

  • Core messages without scatter losses, with proven maximum reach 
  • With strong impetus to interact so as to initiate dialogues and exhibition visits.

 

Benefit from our contact with the new target groups most important to you, specifically those that intend to implement innovations immediately provided that the benefit is presented in a comprehensible and logical fashion.

Involve us in the dialogue at an early stage so as to determine the best communication solution for you!

Kind regards from the ValuePublishing Team

  1. Follow the links to our examples of success.
  2. Use our expertise to build up or expand your knowledge and opportunities.
  3. Focus 100% on your innovations. We will present these in the media in a contemporary manner and with skill!

About us:

ValuePublishing represents a new kind of publication service that has been specially developed by sector experts Michael Seidl and Andreas Weber to present all the relevant topics of drupa 2016 via multichannel communication effectively and sustainably before and during drupa 2016:

  • Online via ValueBlog (ISSN 2364-7639), e-newsletter and via ValueSocialMedia platforms
  • and also customised in print (specialist magazines, specials/direct marketing).

Publication is in German and English. 15,000 contacts are reached directly thanks to our soundly-based knowledge unique to the sector and to networking talent, with in addition a wide reach of up to over 1 million, depending on the topic/content

New: 

Secure and strengthen your exhibition investment. We ensure that the products and services that you offer at the exhibition become the top topic of conversation even before the exhibition and that they are communicated in a targeted way to new visitors who are looking to buy their solutions or to use them via service providers without delay. Your exhibition presence and the drupa slogan “Touch the Future” will be something that can be experienced and understood even before the start of the exhibition!

Our strength: 

Contributing a wide range of targeted specialist topics to the discussion. With smartly formulated and dynamically presented specialist topics we achieve not only an extremely wide reach without scatter losses but also the best interaction effects that new kinds of evaluation opportunities offer to increase company profits. Our activities deliver measurable benefits!

What’s special: 

Multiplication of new contacts. We are in a position to identify and address innovators and decision-makers, in other words your guarantors of growth, throughout the cultural and creative sector in a targeted manner via multichannel communication. In this way, interested parties can become fans of innovative, pioneering products and solutions.

  • From 11 sub-markets we have selected the top areas for all drupa exhibitors that have the greatest need for innovation and that impact the entire economy. In Germany alone that is over a million specialists in almost 250,000 firms that achieved annual turnover of 146 billion Euros and gross added value of over 65 billion Euros in 2014.
  • In particular these are the design sector, the advertising market, software/games and the architecture market and art sector. We have analysed soundly-based long-term studies in detail called for by the German Federal Government, which can be applied to all industrial countries in order to communicate technological innovations in a comprehensible manner and to suit markets and target groups.

Graphic Repro On-line News Review from 23 November 2015

Welcome to another week of news highlights with Laurel Brunner’s Verdigris Blog for Friday 20 November, and a drupa 2016 bonus from Laurel this week, as she is also the author of the latest drupa 2016 Expert article No 5, entitled ‘Sustainability and the Printing Industry’ with an optional PDF download if you so wish. You’ll find this in our drupa Newsroom and also with a link in last Firday’s headlines.

I’ll be brief this week and would rather you check out the headlines yourself as I am travelling and working from my MacBook. You will find an excellent selection of available news from the past week, including a surprise announcement on Friday where Xeikon has been acquired by Flint Group. Two Sides also made the headlines on this day as it provides the outcome and results of its global anti-greenwash campaign, and on Thursday, remaining on a ‘green’ thread, Ricoh announced that is an official partner of the United Nation’s Conference of Parties (COP21) climate conference to be held in Paris from 30 November to 11 December. Although right now, it it is perhaps not the most ideal venue for such a high-profile international gathering.

Please go through the headlines carefully, as you really will find an interesting mixed bag of articles including several awards, anniversaries and several extremely interesting new developments, not least of which came from Sandon on Monday with a new anilox roll technology incorporating semi-channelled engraving. You’ll also find several interesting sales and installations successes, particularly from KBA and also from Heidelberg with a number of Stahlfolder and POLAR successes; also from IFS with Horizon; Flint Group, Xerox, GMG, and EFI.

This week the tailender goes to both of the Manroland companies. Firstly on Monday with Manroland Sheetfed, as it celebrates the first anniversary and a successful first year following the launch of its new Roland 700 Evolution sheetfed press; and secondly, from Manroland Web Systems on Thursday, which has published a white paper about a new way to an efficient colour control, for download as a PDF.

Until next time. My best regards,

Mike Hilton

The first results of the 2nd drupa Global Insights Report “Touch the future – Applications that can create growth” are out now. Implementing new print applications is for many the best way to regain growth in the demand for print.

Graphic Repro On-line News Review from 16 November 2015

Welcome to another week of news highlights with Laurel Brunner’s Verdigris Blog for Friday 13 November, which examines an ongoing European initiative linked to the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) directive which could perhaps spell the end of gravure printing in Europe. For the full article, please visit our Verdigris environmental section. The link appears below, or via the index on our Website.

The week’s news began with Durst at ITMA, where the company launched a new series of super high-performance multi-pass inkjet printers for digital textile production and a new pigmented ink; while Goss International’s new owners have announced the appointment of a new president and chief executive officer. Tuesday saw KBA publish its third quarter 2015 figures, having achieved a pre-tax profit with a turnaround in earnings and with continued solid order intake. It really is beginning to look good.

On Wednesday, Messe Düsseldorf led the headlines as it announced that its Second Global Insights Report is nearing completion and will be available soon in English (and in 7 languages overall). The detailed announcement appears in both English and German in our drupa Newsroom, Please don’t miss it. Bobst also in the headlines with a Gold Award at FEFCO 2015 in Barcelona, for its advanced digital inkjet corrugated press which uses Kodak’s high-speed Stream Inkjet technology.

On Thursday, Sappi Limited published its results for the fourth quarter and full 2015 financial year and is also looking good, with a strong performance and with full year earnings per share excluding special items up 55% for the financial year ended 30 September. FESPA announced its call for entries for the 2016 Awards, marking the start of its search for pioneering and innovative projects in the industry.

Friday’s headlines began with Heidelberger Druckmaschinen revealing that it is on course after the first half of financial year 2015/2016, with sales and result up on the previous year. The second half was also boosted by the sale of the company’s central-Heidelberg headquarters which was posted as income.

You will find quite a number of show-related articles again this week, led by EFI Reggiani on Tuesday, as it showcased new innovations in textile technology at ITMA 2015, including the debut of the new ReNOIR NEXT system. Then we have Mimaki with new inks. Also DuPont and EFI Reggiani on Wednesday, with new inks. Then we have ColorGATE at InPrint in Munich. You will also find an announcement from Baumer on Friday with the world première of a new Tesla family of innovative, high-performance application heads for hot melt adhesives, out of the recent FachPack show in Nuremberg.

A selection of sales and installations successes began with numerous sales from Duplo on Monday out of its recent and successful London Calling event. There’s also a separate announcement from Rapidity with Duplo. On Wednesday Goss International announced that Sandhills Publishing has invested in a new eight-unit Sunday 2000 web press and Pacesetter high-speed saddlestitcher; while EDS Group chose Manroland Web Systems for its latest Lithoman relocation and a Lithoman upgrade. On Thursday Heidelberg UK announced that a Speedmaster XL 75-5+L will be delivered to Thomson Print & Packaging in Edinburgh, Scotland early next year; and the first all-in-one design and print shop in Cape Town’s exclusive Atlantic seaboard suburb of Sea Point, All@OneStop, has added a Xerox press from Bytes.

On Friday, Altacel Flexible Packaging in Weesp, The Netherlands, announced that it has recently fired up a gearless 10-colour KBA-Flexotecnica EVO XG flexo press. This article also appears in Online Features to enable additional photographs to be included, so please don’t miss it. It’s stunning!  Also on this day, independently-owned South African print and design store Wizardz has added a new Xerox Colour C70 printer in TygerValley, Cape Town; while also in South Africa, JMB Labels has invested in a second MPS flexo press and first EB machine in Africa for its Amalgam, Johannesburg plant.

If you work down the list carefully, you will also find other key announcements this week from Xeikon, Gandy, Ricoh Europe with Elsevier, UPM at the CBD Business and Biodiversity Forum 2015 in Helsinki, and from Imaging Solutions and Taopix, among others.

Until next time. My best regards,

Mike Hilton

ValuePublishing Teil 3 Facts Figures Zielgruppen Reichweite UPDATE SELFRUNNING.004

HINTERGRUNDINFORMATIONEN:

Im Gespräch mit zahlreichen Experten sowie dem drupa-Team der Messe Düsseldorf ergaben sich bereits 2015 für uns alle spannende Ansatzpunkte. Im Fokus: Die Vielfalt und die Komplexität der neuen Lösungen im Print- und Papiersektor wächst mit ungeheurer Dynamik. Durch Industrie 4.0 und das Internet-der-Dinge, die aktuellen Treiber der Digitalisierung, werden gleichzeitig sämtliche Geschäfts- und Kommunikationsprozesse revolutioniert, wodurch die Herausforderungen insgesamt explosionsartig wachsen.

Das drupa-Motto „Touch the Future“ sowie ein ambitioniertes drupa-Ausstellungsprogramm spiegeln die noch nie dagewesene, extrem hohe Taktfrequenz, mit der fulminante Veränderungen einhergehen, wieder. Unsere aktuellen ValuePublishing Stories zu Heidelbergs drupa-Strategie „Simply Smart“ belegen eindrucksvoll, wie man auf aktuelle Entwicklungen reagieren kann.

Die gute Nachricht zur drupa 2016 lautet daher: Aus Expertensicht nimmt die Print- und Papierbranche bei der digitalen Transformation geradezu eine Vorreiterrolle ein.

Die weniger gute Nachricht: Die Masse an Neuheiten, die auf der Leitmesse ab
31. Mai 2016 zu sehen sein werden und damit die Informationsfülle, sind schwer
zu bewältigen. Jedenfalls nicht mit den Möglichkeiten, die wir bislang nutzen.

Der Ausweg aus unserer Sicht: Innovative Technologien und Lösungen muss man auch durchgängig innovativ kommunizieren! In Echtzeit. Multimedial. Markt-,
kunden- und bedarfsorientiert.

 

ValuePublishing Teil 3 Facts Figures Zielgruppen Reichweite UPDATE SELFRUNNING.005

Graphic Repro On-line News Review from 2 November 2015

Welcome to another week of news highlights with Laurel Brunner’s Verdigris Blog for Friday 30 October, which this week takes another look at recycling of digital prints. One of the biggest threats to the spread of digital printing methods is concern for the print’s recyclability. In part this is due to scaremongering by vested interests, but printed matter must be deinked if it is to be recycled and some digital printing methods produce prints that are hard to deink. Hard but not impossible. Read the full article in our Verdigris section. We also have Gallus, post-Labelexpo, in Online Features Chapter 07.

The leaders on Monday and Tuesday report on Kodak’s third quarter results, and provide UPM-Kymmene’s interim results for their respective 2015 financial year; while on Wednesday, UPM Kymi reported that its Eur 160 million pulp mill expansion and major upgrade has now proceeded to final finishing work, which will enable annual production capacity at the Kymi mill to increase by 170,000 tonnes to 700,000 tonnes.

Wednesday’s lead went to Heidelberg, as customers Baier & Schneider is soon to start running a Speedmaster SX 52 Anicolor that incorporates the 40,000th printing unit in the SM 52/SX 52 series and is destined for the Group’s Heilbronn, Germany plant. On Thursday, Kodak took the lead again as it announced settlement of the long-outstanding dispute with Collins Inkjet, regarding Kodak Versamark inks with both companies agreeing on-going co-operation for the future.

On Friday, FESPA announced that its Global Summit is to return this year and will be held from 1 – 2 December, at the Andaz Hotel in Amsterdam.

With InPrint in Munich taking place from 10 – 12 November in Munich, Inca Digital will debut its new service: ‘Inca Genius’. A dedicated technology and applications arm, Inca Genius is designed to serve the needs of organisations looking for an established partner to help develop innovative inkjet production solutions for a wide range of industrial applications. You’ll find more about this in the article among Friday’s headlines.

The past week has seen some stunning sales and installations starting with Brydian Cards on Monday with a KBA Genius 52-UV five-colour press. >From Epson at SixTeeSix in the UK; and KBA at Amway in North America with a Rapida 106 6-colour UV press, on Tuesday; and again from KBA on Wednesday with an eight-colour Rapida 106 perfector with LED-UV at Oberdruck in Austria. Scodix also announced a first in Europe for the new Scodix Foil system for the Scodix Ultra Pro at OFT in Neuss, Germany. On Thursday, MPS announced that GM Graphix in Alberton announced that it has installed the first flexo press in South Africa to use LED UV drying. It is the company’s third MPS pr ess. BCQ Group in Buckingham, has added a Promatrix 106 die-cutter from HeidelbergUK, along with a Stitchmaster ST500; while Signbox UK has enhanced its production with a new cutting-edge Durst Rho P10 160 UV inkjet printer.

On Friday, Heidelberg USA announced that it is soon to install the world’s first XL 106 long-perfector with X4 delivery, complete with full UV, LE UV and LED UV; and Watkiss announced that AB Print Group has chosen a nearline configuration of the Watkiss PowerSquare as the optimum solution for finishing from the firm’s assortment of litho and digital presses.

If you check out the headlines carefully, you will also find new software and upgrades from Esko, Enfocus and Muller Martini on Monday, Thursday and Friday respectively.

The tailender goes to FESPA Fabric, as it rebrands at FESPA Textile 2016 to reflect the fast-expanding, multi-application textile sector for Amsterdam show at the RAI next March (in the FESPA Newsroom and also among the headlines on Tuesday.

That’s all from me until next time,

My best regards,

Mike Hilton

About ValuePublishing.001

In eigener Sache: Unser neues Angebot — Teil 1: “Was? Wie? Warum!”

Gemäß den Erkenntnissen aus ihrem “Gipfeltreffen” in Mainz haben Michael Seidl und Andreas Weber ein neues Angebot entwickelt: ValuePublishing — Die nachhaltige Inszenierung von Fachkommunikation für Print, Publishing, visuelle Kommunikation und Multichannel. — InterMedial + InterKultuell + InterkreAktiv!

 „Wir müssen verstärkt über alle Medienkanäle hinweg unsere unterschiedlichen Expertisen, Meinungen und relevante Botschaften zusammenführen. Print profitiert dabei von Online/Social. Und umgekehrt.“ —Michael Seidl

„Unser Ziel ist es nicht nur hohe Reichweiten aufzubauen, sondern Interaktionen herbeizuführen. Dies beflügelt den Kommunikationsmix sowie das Lesererlebnis gleichermaßen und führen SOFORT zum Erfolg.“ —Andreas Weber

Ob Technologieentwickler, Papierhersteller, Dienstleistungsbetrieb oder Kommunikationstreibender: Alle sitzen in einem Boot bei stürmischer See. 

Das Tempo wird höher, der Umgang mit Innovationen wird immer komplexer. Um im Bild zu bleiben: Unternehmen haben zusehends Probleme, den Kommunikations-Kurs zu halten und den sicheren Hafen (sprich die Kunden) zu erreichen. 

Die bangen Fragen: 

  1. Wer bringt Licht ins Dunkel?
  2. Wer filtert das Wichtige und Relevante heraus?
  3. Wer bringt alle Beteiligten zusammen?
  4. Wer stellt den Kontext her zwischen technisch Machbarem und veränderten Anforderungen im Markt?

Gute Fragen. — Beste Antwort:
WIR! 

Wir, dass sind Michael Seidl, EMG/Wien, und Andreas Weber, Value Communication/Mainz, ausgewiesene und renommierte Experten für Fachkommunikation. Mit der Spezialisierung auf Print, Publishing, Visuelle Kommunikation und Multichannel.

Graphic Repro On-line News Review from 26 October 2015

Welcome to another week of news highlights with Laurel Brunner’s Verdigris Blog for Friday 23 October, which this week examines the merits and demands of meaningful Environmental Awards for printers. Also a reminder about the best practice guide, ‘Optimised Paper Handling and Logistics’ which will shortly be released in an Alpha version for open industry comment. You can also apply to take part or to comment! You’ll find the article and links for that in Online Features Chapter 01.

News this week began with Fusion Office Automation in the Eastern Cape taking over responsibility for Ricoh’s Port Elizabeth branch and the territory. We have articles relating to the upcoming London Calling Duplo event from 3 – 4 November (Monday); InPrint 2015 in Munich from 10 – 12 November with Heidelberg’s participation with full colour 4D printing; ITMA in Milan with Mimaki from 12 – 10 November; SGIA and Kornit Digital from 4 – 6 November; EFI Connect Worldwide Users’ Conference, 19 – 22 January with Infotrends; and Ricoh at drupa 2016 from 31 May to 10 June (all on Tuesday).

Wednesday saw EFI take the lead with record Q3 results, following completion of the acquisitions of Reggiani and Matan on 1 July, which are now being quickly integrated into EFI’s product lines and offerings; while on Thursday, Inca Digital announced the launch of its new X-series large-format inkjet press range. As our headline says: You can now drive the new Inca Digital X3!

On Friday, leading London print house Park Communications continued its major investment programme with a 6-colour B1 KBA Rapida 106 with integral coating, following purchases earlier this year of a HP Indigo 7800 digital press and Kalmar mailing equipment with mail matching software. The new press will be commissioned early in the New Year. Other notable sales this week include the UK’s first Low Energy UV installation from Heidelberg with a Speedmaster XL 75-4 LE-UV press complete with Inpress Colour Control for Wincanton Print; while Germany’s Medienhaus Plump reported on its recent Muller Martini Pantera perfect binder (Wednesday). Backtracking to Monday, KBA announced the installation of a new eight-colour Rapida 106 at Litografia e Imprenta LiL in the Costa Rican capital, San Jose, for school textbooks and education publications; and Manroland Web has relocated a 48-page Lithoman with extensive upgrades at WKS Group in Essen, Germany. Thursday saw Muller Martini again, this time reporting on Frey Plus, a leading German direct mail firm based inUlm, in Southern Germany, which was first company in the world to commission the Muller Martini MailLiner.

You will find other new kit and software releases and more news if you scroll down carefully.

The tailender is not strictly print-related, but it does involve one of the world’s leading paper makers wearing one of its other hats: UPM has started field tests of wood-based diesel fuel in Helsinki region bus traffic with VTT and HSL, supported by St1, Volvo and Transdev… Biodiesel finally becomes a commercial reality! You’ll find this in Thursday’s headlines.

That’s all from me until next time,

My best regards,

Mike Hilton
