Time for some Focus

First blog post of 2011 – is it too late to wish you all a happy new year?!

Today’s post is a bit of a Focus on Imaging special.

If you’re into your photography, you probably know all about Europe’s largest annual imaging show already, but for those of you who don’t, take a look at the Focus website: www.focus-on-imaging.co.uk or watch this video to give you a flavour of the show.

From manufacturers to distributers, professionals to keen hobyists, a visit to Focus on Imaging really is a must if you take your imaging seriously. And – not forgetting – it’s a chance for you to come and meet us! (Hall 9, C11)

We love the show as it’s a great chance for us to meet you face-to-face. Every year our stand seems to get bigger and busier – and we expect this year to be no exception! The only downside is the slightly aching feet by the end of the show…

So what have we got in store for you this year I hear you ask?


This year we are running a ‘Colour Clinic‘ which gives you the opportunity to come and ask us anything. And we mean anything! Our technical team (who have over 30 years expereince in the industry) will all be on hand to tackle your questions and give you some expert help and guidance for all your colour management and imaging needs.

We also have a whole host of lovely new products for you to come and have a play with, including…

Again, our tech team will be on hand to demo all the above and more, and talk you through any questions you may have.

We’ll have a range of special show-only offers for you to take advantage of, and the chance for you to win an iPad! All you have to do is come and say hello and complete an entry form. Simples!

The first 500 visitors to our stand can also enjoy a FREE copy of our limited edition ‘Introduction To Colour’ magazine. So make sure you get here early!

Plus lots, lots more…

If you fancy coming along, you can register here for 20% off the standard admission fee.

We hope to see you there!
