CloudLab on tour: 3rd Digital Print Congress in Duesseldorf


On 15th February 2018 the 3rd Digital Print Congress – in short: ddk – took place in the Congress Center Duesseldorf. The ddk is held by the Federal Association and the Regional Associations Print and Media and focuses on business models for digital printing. With more than 200 participants and top-notch talks it was a complete success.

Being a premium partner of this event, of course CloudLab had to be present as well. Through personal interaction and demonstrations at our booth we had the opportunity to present our printQ system, which, based on the Magento e-commerce system, offers an unparalleled end-to-end solution for online distribution of print products, to interested visitors and printing companies. Special attention was given to our new and unique 3D packaging designer, which allows the customer to freely design his own packages.



Innovative products and business models were introduced in three exciting discussion panels titled “Markets and Trends”, “Customer and Product” and “Processes and Organization”, held, among others, by Dirk Hentschler, Managing Director of our client Buch- und Offsetdruckerei H. Heenemann, who during his talk “Real Transformation from Offset to Digital Print” entertained the professional audience with his nonchalant Berlin dialect.

The talk of Julian Jost, CEO and Founder of our client printmate, who had stepped into the breach for another speaker, was likewise received with enthusiasm. True to the proven event concept „Users present to Users” Julian spoke about the “Race for El Dorado – Packaging in Online Printing”.

We look back fondly on the ddk 2018, which has once more proven to be an inspiring platform for new concepts, processes and ideas, and we already look forward to the next Digital Print Congress in 2019.
