Paperworld, the most important trade fair in Europe, took place once again this year in Frankfurt am Main from Saturday 28 Jan. to Tuesday 31 Feb. 2012.
Trodat's trade show appearance this year was also the prelude to its centenary year and stood as mark of recognition of this milestone anniversary: Trodat – The Next 100 Years.
2012 Paperworld preview meeting
Nearly 200 participants came to the presentation of the most important innovations which took place during the afternoon of Friday 27 Jan. 2012, the day before the launch of the official trade show. The aim of Trodat's 2012 preview meeting was to present all of the trade fair's highlights to the most important international customers using PowerPoint presentations, new products and video clips, live demos and live interviews even before the official trade show launch.
Anniversary event—Trodat The Next 100 Years
Trodat celebrates its birthday in 2012. For one hundred years, Trodat has succeeded in making the world of stamping even simpler, more colourful, and more varied. For all the pride and tradition in the first one hundred years, everything revolves around the future with us. These aspects — past, present, and especially the future — are expressed with the anniversary slogan 'Trodat – The Next 100 Years'. The Trodat Paperworld customer event this year was held under this anniversary slogan, which we celebrated with our many customers from all over the world in an impressive and colourful fashion at the Thurn und Taxis Palais, one of Frankfurt's most impressive event venues.

Paperworld started on Saturday 28 Jan. 2012 at 9.00 a.m. The whole stand design was aligned with this year's Trodat anniversary 'Trodat – The Next 100 Years'.
The Group's product and service innovations for this year were exhibited on the 210m2 stand and the focus was on the product and services news which had already presented at the preview meeting.

The latest developments in Multi Color Impression multicolour stamps with the Multi Color Jet were presented together with Trotec. Trotec exhibited on the stand its entire product and service selection, from the Rayjet to the Laserati, supplemented by consumables and application examples from the areas of cutting, engraving and marking.
