Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe will be welcoming more than 1,000 of its international retail partners to its European Leadership Campus (ELC) 2019. Being held on 18 October in Copenhagen, Denmark, this year’s major summit will bring together Konica Minolta’s channel partners to showcase the company’s newest products, solutions and services and to provide a forum to learn about and discuss evolving market needs. In 2019, the main theme of ELC is “Rethink Your Scope” - inviting attendees to consider both the challenges and the opportunities presented to them and their customers by digital transformation. Hence, one particular focus is Konica Minolta’s groundbreaking Workplace Hub - a true all-in-one IoT solution for the connected workplace that helps businesses to simplify their IT infrastructure.
The ELC 2019 offers partners from across Konica Minolta’s European and CAMEA region insights into key market trends as well as the company’s visionary outlook to address the emerging opportunities of today and tomorrow – from office or professional printing to IT services solutions. Most notably, the programme will include main stage keynote addresses from Shoei Yamana, President and CEO of Konica Minolta, Inc., who will offer a global perspective on the company and from Keiji Okamoto, who will outline Konica Minolta’s channel strategy for the region. The campus will also provide a showcase of a breadth of products, solutions and services from Konica Minolta. In addition to Workplace Hub, the partners can also experience the latest innovations and learn more about new office or professional printing technology products and solutions for secure, efficient business processes and document management.
In line with Konica Minolta’s deep commitment to sustainability, the ELC 2019 will again be completely carbon-neutral. In 2019, all carbon emissions will be compensated for, including all overnight stays and travel activities of all guests and Konica Minolta crew members, meals and drinks, transportation of display items, waste, cleaning of textiles and even exhibition materials.
