Attendees can join from wherever they are and sign up for sessions featuring business, industry and technical education; discussions and knowledge-sharing with colleagues; technology demonstrations and solution updates from partners; and virtual networking with printers and partners all over the world.
The event allows HP print service providers to learn the latest tools, technology, industry trends and business applications to help their business and teams grow. Business, industry and technical education sessions will “follow the sun,” with the four-day event designed to accommodate different global time zones. In true Dscoop fashion, there will also be many opportunities to meet with partners, see real-case applications in the virtual Solutions Showcase, and to share ideas with colleagues during networking sessions. Registrants will be able to connect globally with like-minded peers in a way that’s interactive and meaningful.
Dscoop gathers PSPs (print service providers) using HP Graphic Arts solutions such as HP Indigo digital presses, along with creative designers, solutions, and media partners, and brand leaders, through events, inspiration and collaboration. Along with the print community it serves and supports, Dscoop adapted over the past year, too.
After Edge Orlando 2020 was postponed in March due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Dscoop brought more than 90 virtual events and new content to its community as powerful ways to learn from each other and from partners, industry experts and business leaders.
Dscoop recently revised its plans for a global hybrid event (with a simultaneous face-to-face event in St. Louis), due to concerns for the safety of its members. The good news is that the upcoming Edge Fusion will offer the full hybrid experience for all of its members to join, no matter where in the world they are located.
“Fusion is more than an event name,” explains Keith Wilmot, CEO of Dscoop. “It exemplifies the energy and enthusiasm of the Dscoop community coming together to learn, grow, and connect with each other. Our community is the most unique group of people I’ve ever known. They genuinely want to collaborate and share their advice and experiences. We’ve seen it throughout our 2020 virtual events: the Dscoop spirit is authentic, powerful and makes us stronger together.”
Edge Fusion will offer session topics based on members’ survey feedback, scheduled at times that accommodate three different global regions. Programming includes:
- Keynote speakers to inspire action, motivation and new ideas
- Business, marketing, sales and leadership sessions to drive business and professional growth
- Demos and workshops on the latest technologies and tools to increase innovation and revenue
- Local in-country hybrid events to provide highly relevant education and idea-sharing for specific markets
