Landa once again took center stage at drupa, taking over €450 million ($505 million) in orders for Nanographic Printing presses. An estimated 200,000 visitors thronged to the Landa stand to catch a glimpse of its 20 daily live press demos. Visitor enthusiasm translated directly into hundreds of sales meetings, with orders taken in all major geographical regions, including the Americas, Europe and Asia-Pacific. Landa reported numerous multiple-press deals, demonstrating market confidence in Landa and its Nanographic Printing presses. “drupa 2016 will be remembered as the inflection point in the industry’s transition from mechanical printing to digital. In the past, digital printing vendors had to try to convince the market that digital is the way to go. Previously it was a ‘push’ selling motion,” says Benny Landa, chairman. “Now, for the first time, the situation has reversed. There is a very strong ‘pull’ from the market, driven by both customers and brand-owners, who are now demanding digital printing. It seems that the market leaders — in packaging, commercial printing and in publishing — have come to the realization that they simply must go digital.”
