There’s a joke going around the Xerox stand at drupa 2012 that says the trade fair is like Groundhog Day (the movie). Every day, like clockwork, the stand staff arrives at the Messe sometime between 8:30 and 9:00 a.m., attends the Sunrise Meeting at 9:15 a.m., gives the first of several demos/presentations around 10:30 a.m., catches a glimpse of Cirque du Soleil at 10:45 a.m., then 1:45 p.m., then 4:45 p.m., followed by Happy Hour and a 20-minute ride back to the hotel.
And while this scenario is not quite what the attendees experience, I’m willing to bet that there’s one aspect that is the same for all of us. After about 30 minutes to one hour of catching up on emails, calling home, and freshening up at the hotel, we are all hungry and wondering where to go for dinner. And since many of us don’t call Düsseldorf home, this becomes a drawn-out dilemma – keeping us from that nice, warm bath or extra hour of sleep.
So, to save you time and deliberation so you can focus on whatever you came to the show for, XMPie has partnered up with Düsseldorf Inside and dataNovo to bring you the Dusseldorf 1:1 Dining Guide. With cuisine choices ranging from Asian to Italian to Fine German and Swiss, the personalized guide will provide you with dining recommendations in the area based on your preferred cuisines, as well as a QR code with a map leading you wherever you choose to go.
We hope you’ll stop by the XMPie area of the Xerox stand in Hall 8b anytime to create your personalized guide and see the power of 1:1 cross-media!
