Roland DG to Appear at the Retail Business Technology Expo 2018

Roland DG are appearing at one of the UK’s largest retail events, the Retail Business Technology Expo (RBTE) at Olympia, London on 2-3 May 2018. We will be demonstrating the wide range of personalised gift applications possible with our UV printing and impact engraving solutions.

The global personalised gift market is set to reach £22 billion in the next four years [Technavio]. In a 2015 YouGov survey, the UK market alone was estimated to be worth over £1 Billion. With the fate of retail in a state of constant uncertainty, businesses are seeking out new ways to increase their revenue. On the Roland DG stand (stand B178), we have created an inspiring overview of applications possible with relatively little investment in money, time and floorspace. 

Visitors to RBTE will get the chance to see Roland DG’s VersaUV LEF-12i in action and view a multitude of customised items to help spark their imagination of what is creatively possible for their specific customers. Its versatility has made it a popular choice thanks to its ability to print directly onto a wide range of products and materials.

Roland DG will also be demonstrating the Metaza MPX-95 impact printer. This compact engraving machine makes it possible to print images, text and barcodes onto metal objects like cosmetic products and gift items. One of its key benefits is its compact size and ease of use, the user-friendly software makes it ideal for in-store and fulfilment environments.

With these machines installed in-store, customers will be able to choose a product, specify a message or design, and take their unique items home in a matter of minutes. With the average spend on personalised gifts estimated at £36.50 [YouGov], the potential for boosting revenue is truly impressive.
