PPDS has opening of its new 2,368-square-foot, sustainability inspired, multipurpose Master Showroom on its home ground in Amsterdam. The goal of the new showroom is to provide existing and prospective partners and customers with convenient access to its specialist teams, and to experience its full suite of hardware and software display solutions, for more educated and collaborative project creations and decision making.

“PPDS is focused on helping customers to create healthier, more efficient, and sustainable working and learning environments," said Martijn van der Woude, VP global marketing and business development at PPDS. "Sustainability is not about good PR, it is about taking decisive action, which is one of the key inspirations behind our new PPDS Master Showroom.”

Spanning two separate floors and featuring a nearly 28-foot ceiling and mezzanine, the new PPDS Master Showroom is the company’s largest and most sustainable showcasing space to date, with the building recently receiving an A-grade Energy Label classification (‘A’ being the highest ‘G’ being the lowest), indicating an extremely energy efficient environment.

New stricter rules were recently introduced by the European Parliament to reduce energy consumption in buildings, including workplaces, schools and other public buildings. This directive is aligned with PPDS’ global sustainability strategy, supporting customers in achieving their goals through an ever-growing portfolio of energy efficient solutions, all featuring in the Master Showroom, supporting all market verticals.

These will include the ‘zero power’ 25-inch Philips Tableaux Advanced Color ePaper (ACeP) display, as well as the brand new 32-inch Philips Tableaux 5150 featuring E Ink’s Spectra 6 technology, which is due to be unveiled for the first time there during November.
