On Saturday, 27th January 2018 COLOP invited its international customers to spend an entertaining, informative and at the same time relaxed evening in the appealing atmosphere of the Villa Kennedy. COLOP astonished its guests not only with a new ambiance in 2018, but also with a range of new products and rousing show acts.
After a come together in the garden foyer, everyone went to the elegant banquet hall of the Villa Kennedy, to take a seat at the beautifully decorated gala tables. The lights went out and three drummers from the artist group Power!Percussion made their way on the stage through the audience to open the evening brilliantly.
This impressive introduction was followed by speeches by Ernst Faber and Franz Ratzenberger, who gave a review of the year 2017 and a look ahead to the year 2018. First of all they welcomed the new family members COLOP China and COLOP India, which were founded in the past year.
In the product area, COLPs new [AR] STAMPS Motivational were introduced, making a stamp imprint a 3D experience and COLOP a pioneer in the stamp industry. In addition, COLOP convinced with the elegant True Style – a new exclusive representative of the COLOP Heavy Duty series. Another main topic was COLOP´s new Top Pad series and associated possible fields of application, new additional ink colours and the matching new COLOP rocker stamp called Swing Stamp. Finally, the optimisation of the download area on the COLOP website was presented, which brings a number of advantages for COLOP´s partners. Lots of interesting information for our guests to be discussed after a second show act with percussion music and a great buffet at Villa Kennedy.
Last but not least, the final show act of Power!Percussion followed, where among others our COLOP stamps where used as musical instruments of a special kind. During this act the mystery of the drum sticks branded with the COLOP logo and placed on the seats of our guests was also resolved. They were rhythmically involved in the last part of the show and were able to prove their musical talent. So much is revealed: the COLOP family grooved neat!
The evening came to an end at the dessert buffet. Our guests talked animatedly about the experienced and could exchange themselves about the world of stamps and private topics.
COLOP thanks its more than 100 guests for coming. It is always a pleasure to see, that customers from all over the world come to Frankfurt to share news about the industry and to build, maintain and intensify old and new contacts.
