OnDemand draws healthy crowds
PHILADELPHIA, PA—No official numbers are available yet, but the OnDemand show last week opened and closed on a high note, drawing more crowds than most people expected.

Focused almost exclusively on digital printing and peripherals, and coming during hard economic times, the show brought more than 200 exhibitors to the Philadelphia Convention Centre on March 30 to April 2.

Though the show occupied less floor space than last year, crowds materialized as soon as the show opened. Most exhibitors reported they were pleased with the turnout and that the level of interest in investing is still strong among the visitors. Many of the exhibitors reported signing on again for the next show.

Exhibitors included Canon, Xerox, HP, Océ, Screen, Ricoh, Presstek, Fujifilm, Konica Minolta, EFI, CP Bourg, Standard, Duplo, GBC, Piney Bowes, as well as several software companies, including Avanti Computer Software, which received a Best in Show award for its MIS system.

A round-up of new products released at OnDemand, will appear in the June issue of Graphic Monthly Canada.

Here’s a pictorial highlight of the some of the booths:
