The event is open to all industry editors and consultants free of charge. "Some presenters may be making announcements at our event and it is an excellent opportunity to get the jump on their digital printing updates prior to PRINT 17," says PIA's Executive Vice President Marty Maloney.
The list of presentation sponsors also include EFI, Ricoh, Canon, Heidelberg, Xerox, HP and Konica Minolta. Presentation sponsorships are now closed.
The event will take place at Club 101, located at 101 Park Avenue, NY, NY at 40th Street. Mark Michelson, the event’s lead moderator will be joined by expert panelists, speakers and presenters. Over 100 printers will hear the latest updates and options for all areas of digital printing including toner, inkjet production, label & packaging and wide format. A digital experience printers panel will feature top management from printers large and small; including Mike Graff, CEO of Sandy Alexander and Cheryl Kahanec, President of Marketing Solutions Group, Earth Color and Eric Webber, CEO & President of Cohber Press.
Maloney adds, "It has been over a year since are first Think Tank and Printers are requesting an update. They like our format which allows them to make side-by-side comparisons and find out which press should be their next digital purchase."
A new tier of sponsorship has been added to the event. This new tier is a non-presentation sponsorship that will give supporting vendors a reserved table for five persons, an in-room small perimeter table to sell as well as display literature. Paper Mart, Pantone / X-Rite and Lindenmeyer Munroe are in this category. Non-Presentation sponsors will pay a single affordable inclusive fee of $1300. Printers and others registering for the event will pay a deeply discounted rate of a $109. Actual cost is north of $200 per person.
The event will cut across all digital printing technologies from the simplest to ink jet production and all applications will be discussed including direct mail, books, labels & packaging and wide format graphics. The presentations will be interspersed by discussion panels that will include a panel of digital printers and also a panel of digital press manufacturers.
Presentation sponsors will typically be press manufacturers and non-presentation sponsors will be paper, finishing, software, color and others supporting the digital print industry.
