|VENUE UNVEILED FOR DUPLO’S LONDON CALLING EVENT
Duplo has unveiled initial details for London Calling 2015 – now an established print industry event in its seventh year – to show how customers create added value and increased revenue through focusing on intelligent technology and integrated solutions.
The venue for the event on 3-4 November will be historic Sunbeam Studios, Ladbroke Hall, North Kensington, which was the UK’s first purpose-built and car factory showroom and is now one of the foremost photographic studios and event spaces in London.
At London Calling, Duplo will be demonstrating how its continual focus on investing in its customer service and support along with the development of next-generation products helps provide customers with integrated solutions and increased profitability.
This year’s event has been shaped following extensive discussions, in particular from thoughts and ideas generated at Duplo’s forum in May involving eight customers. Specific feedback included a desire to see a wider range of smaller complementary products and also to create an environment conducive to exchanging ideas and networking.
Building on the success of six previous events, Duplo will be inspiring customers through new applications and innovations. Once again, it will be engaging with business partners to demonstrate complete workflows, right through from the paper options and web-to-print through to the finishing and beyond.
Sarah Crumpler, UK Marketing Manager for Duplo, said: “The concept of London Calling is always customer focused. It helps us demonstrate engagement across the whole supply for the journey from the seed of a printed job, to the print and finishing, as well as covering what happens next.
“Once again our 2015 event was moulded by the suggestions that have emanated from our customer interactions and focus group that steers the new ideas we are incorporating.”
Details of Duplo’s key partners for London Calling 2015 will be unveiled soon.
London Calling is a showcase for inspirational ideas, innovative applications, more intelligent technology and integrated solutions.
Previous venues include East Wintergarden, Hilton Docklands, Tate Modern, IMAX, British Music Experience at the O2 and Somerset House.
About Sunbeam Studios
The building is home to Sunbeam Studios and regarded as one of the foremost photographic studios and event spaces in London. It was originally opened in 1903 as the Talbot Works and was the first purpose-built car factory and show-room in the UK. A world record for 100 miles in one hour was set in 1913 by a Talbot built at this site. Through this achievement the driver, Percy Lambert, became the fastest man ever over this distance – on land, sea, or air, for which he earned the status of celebrity and national hero.
Based at Ladbroke Hall, W10, it’s a place that not only produced record breaking cars but was used by Winston Churchill as his experimental warfare establishment in the World War One and is also the place where the first anti-aircraft brigade was established in 1915.
