“Our objective, as a solutions distributor, was to help you realize your goals,” said Suzanne Wakefield, Managing Partner at Insource. “As a distributor, not a manufacturer, we’re in the unique position to truly find the optimal path to support our cleints’ current business objectives, and the execution of their next business steps in the ever-changing print industry. The Expo provided opportunities to see hands-on technology and applications that are really just a small sampling of our solutions. The truth is that our solutions are vast and varied, and a client’s business vision is unique – so our Expo was really about bringing both together and forging a path to reality,” she added.
