London Calling is back and this year the event has been raised to a whole new level.
DUPLO will be giving its customers the opportunity to see its latest technology, DuSense, at this year’s London Calling event. DuSense will take centre stage on 8th February 2018 amongst other machines like the iSaddle, DBM 600, DC-616, DC-646 plus more!
The purpose of London Calling this year is to provide guests with the ultimate sensory experience, proving that the moment you add touch to print, you engage and excite your receiver in a whole new way.
During the day, London calling is taking place in the newly refurbished showroom at Automated Precision House, Addlestone, where the building will be transformed into a sensory rainforest. On arrival guests will be greeted in amongst the rainforest setting with all the sights and sounds to help transport them there.
Samples from the DuSense will be available to compare against real life reptiles, virtual reality booths are on hand to throw you into the middle of the rainforest and for lunch, customers will be taken into the DUPLO rainforest for an unforgettable dining experience. To finish the event and top all their senses, customers will be heading to the spectacular Glass House at Wisley gardens where exquisite food, drink and entertainment will compliment an unforgettable surrounding.
During this thrilling day and night customers will be encouraged to learn about how DuSense has benefited current DuSense customers, the science behind haptics and how touch enhances print as well as live demonstrations with question and answer sessions.
Senses are extremely significant in print, and London Calling 2018 will showcase just how important it really is now and even more so in the future.
