Shanghai bund - ITL back to first overseas opening for global mid-term review

Exotic and bustling, Shanghai's Bund, the historic area of the city bordering the Huangpu River, was the location for an upbeat appraisal of Integration Technology (ITL)'s mid-year sales and marketing review.

ITL products have proved to be the number one choice for major players in the international inkjet printer manufacturing sector.

A pioneering designer and developer of ultra-violet (UV) curing solutions for inkjet printing amongst other emerging technologies, ITL enjoys a significant export market share and ITL China was the very first of the company's offices to open to meet the needs of the highly important South East Asian manufacturing sector.

ITL Shanghai's sales team welcomed its Japanese, Korean, European and USA counterparts as well as directors from the UK to what has become a fixture in the company's trading year and in an informal, flexible context than the more rigid framework and reporting procedures of the company's annual ISM at its HQ in Oxford, England.


The 2008 meeting proved particularly useful with its upbeat review in the context of the global economic situation and provided a forum for exploring development ideas that could well see ITL products entering a number of other technology sectors.

Discussions allowed timely adjustments to business strategy that will benefit overseas customer facing staff and inform the design and development team back home.

The Shanghai 'home team' of Sam Yang and Jane Wensh proved admirable hosts, providing a timetable that also enabled Koji Ogawa and Kenji Takamura from ITL's Japanese sales partner, Jennifer Heathcote from ITL USA, Simon Gibbs from ITL Europe and Lewis Jun from ITL Korea to learn more about Chinese business culture at first hand.

Sam and Jane arranged for the international visitors to explore the Yuyuan Garden, visit the 400-year old water village of Zhu Jia Jiao, and be guided - carefully! - through local restaurant menus.

ITL UK directors, Adrian Lockwood, David Johnson and Jason Smith, were pleased with the opportunity to get the team together after the closely packed series of international industry conferences and exhibitions that filled the diary over preceding months.

Global Accounts Director David Johnson commented: "ITL marketing people are technically experienced in the sector, well able to troubleshoot problems and solve any set-up issues that might arise.

"Bringing the team together here in Shanghai, to the very site of our first overseas office, enabled us to take a step back and thus keep an open perspective on our business plan for 2009 and forward."

ITL's 2009 mid-term meeting is scheduled to take place in Chicago, the second ITL sales office to be opened outside the UK.
