Graph Expo – Orlando – September

A must-attend industry event, Graph Expo this year presented a number of innovative solutions, new applications and networking opportunities, plus more than 40 educational and technical sessions. We saw a lot of our industry partners and associates there; like BCC, Compart, Canon, Ricoh, Konica Minolta, and many more. In fact, there were a total of 13,447 registrants, including exhibitors and attendees!

This conference was a great success for Eclipse. The show floor was amazing and included specialty features, like the “House That Print Built”, the Inkjet Candy Store and Materials Matter, among many others.

Next up from Graph Expo is Print 17 in Chicago, September 10th-14th. It looks like another must-attend event!

Oracle OpenWorld – San Francisco – October

Oracle OpenWorld is quite an event. As an Oracle Gold Partner, we were proud to be one of the many partner and customer exhibitors. There was so much to see and do at the Big Data Showcase. It was also really cool to have some of the work of the next generation of programmers, coders and engineers showcased at the Design Realization Garage. We learned a lot at Oracle OpenWorld and saw amazing new innovations but we also had loads of fun!

Oracle took us to new heights at Oracle OpenWorld 2016.

We can’t wait to see what Oracle has in store for OpenWorld 2017, again in October in San Francisco.
