Attendees will receive production and management ideas from industry experts that they can take back to their businesses and implement immediately. Some of the conference session topic highlights include prepress and plate technologies, maximizing profits in Lean, application in action with digital printing, and inside of printed electronics. In addition to these topics, attendees will learn more information aimed at helping them grow their businesses and increase profits during these turbulent economic times.
