he return of the IMA after a year's break in a new location, namely Düsseldorf,
was reason for uncertainty of its success. However, it did not take long for this
uncertainty to elapse. The IMA was a busy show and Suzo had its own stand.
The German Suzo sales staff reported being very busy. Michael Pfeil of Suzo Germany commented, “We presented our new German catalogue to our German-speaking customers. We found that the market is picking up in Germany. We had the opportunity to present Starpoint as part of the Suzo Happ Group.
Eric Lafranca of Suzo Germany agrees, “Our strength in depth is what our customers appreciate. Our new Evolution hopper created much interest as well as the banknote readers Trilogy from PTI and SC83 from MEI. The Trilogy won the prize of being best foreign product at the Polish Gaming Show recently. It's great being able to offer such great quality at a real value price to our customers.”
A week later Suzo exhibited both at the ATEI and ICE stands. The ICE stand was shared with the strategic partners MEI and FutureLogic. “Mei and FutureLogic have great products. Combine this with the Suzo knowledge and service; this makes the future bright”, stated Suzo's MD, Marcel Oelen. One of Suzo's best known characters, Robert van Enkhuijzen was particularly busy explaining Suzo's new RGB topper, along with ELO touch screens. And the new Trilogy stacker low-cost note reader created much interest”, noted Robert.
Finally, the Suzo Happ Group took the opportunity to thank their customers and suppliers for their trust in 2006 by celebrating a party at the London Chelsea football club. “We had over 700 guests at our James Bond themed party. It was a memorable evening,” stated Marcel.
