viscom düsseldorf 2015: Exhibitors present Numerous Product Highlights

You cannot help looking when holographs turn products into real eye-catchers, when displays are converted into gems or when entire stands are made out of paper. Boasting a host of product highlights viscom düsseldorf 2015 shows how to attract potential customers' attention and make advertising messages sure-fire. 307 companies are presented at the International Trade Fair for Visual Communication in Düsseldorf from Wednesday to Friday, 4 to 6 November. In the age of 360-degree communication viscom brings together all disciplines of brand communication: from technology and material to applications and marketing. One thing is for sure: visual communication must move people, appeal to all the senses, thrill, be awe-inspiring and leave a lasting impact.

New faces at viscom

Just under 80 new exhibitors present themselves at viscom this year bringing plenty of fresh ideas to the market. Hailing from 21 countries these first-time exhibitors come not only from the German-speaking countries but also from Sweden, the United Kingdom, France, the Netherlands, Estonia, China and Hong Kong, to name but a few. And they will bring products that are guaranteed to stay on visitors' minds.

One such product is the Digital Signage solution by Iltis & Wiesel . I&W develops, manufactures and distributes smart, high-quality electronic design products that can be personalised and seamlessly blend in with, and enrich customers' everyday lives. At viscom the company will be showcasing its Smart Display [re:frame] – a changeable display with built-in media player (linux / Android / Windows) plus multi-touch option in sizes 27, 46 and 55 inch that is framed like an oil painting. Here technology meets design and customers are spoilt for choice: classic wooden or Bauhaus-style frame.

The Vodafone floor-standing display "gift-cards" by Brohl Wellpappe has been nominated for the display SUPERSTAR, the award of the awards in the display industry. The special feature of this triangular turning display is its mix of materials that makes for an appealing look but also for stability ensuring long-term deployment for up to 18 months. The printed elements consist of offset-laminated corrugated board coated with a UV varnish providing long-term protection. To stabilise the display a plastic body and a particle-board was incorporated into the foot while a metal turntable ensures the right twist and turn for this POS head-turner.

Highest print quality at low cost is the guiding principle of Bordeaux Digital PrintInk . This company from Israel is using its trade fair appearance at viscom to make further in-roads into the German market. For this Bordeaux Digital PrintInk will be opening a branch office in Aachen. The product range includes all types of ink – from eco-friendly and solvent-based inks to UV and UV-LED-curing inks, not forgetting dye sublimation and state-of-the-art latex inks. On top of this, the company has a comprehensive range of liquid laminates and UV-curing coatings in store for large-format graphic prints, vehicle signage and document finishing.

SamtEtikett® is a self-adhesive label material with unrivalled depth – it already projects exclusivity from afar and triggers that "need to touch". The unique touch intuitively conveys the highest quality, which is then associated with the product. SamtEtikett® labels are an innovation launched by the agency HS design that is a first-time exhibitor at viscom this year and that can also be seen in the world of inspiration area (Hall 8a / Stand K 41).

Photofabrics launches Gloprint, an innovation in the carpet printing sector. By using 540 nozzles with a 76 dpi resolution, this digitally adapted technology makes it possible to print with fluorescent inks on floor or wall carpeting. These are then made visible with the help of black light, which makes motifs and logos virtually glow.

Antalis GmbH, LEONHARD KURZ Stiftung & Co. KG, PrintCity GmbH + Co. KG as well as Sappi Alfeld GmbH are the exhibitors at the technology & materials area.

The design & development area will be extended to include the designers' treff this year.
