Dates Set for 2011 PODi AppForum in Las Vegas

ROCHESTER, NY—June 10, 2010—PODi, the Digital Printing Initiative, announced today that the 2011 AppForum will be held January 31 – February 2 at the exciting Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas. This face-to-face forum for the world’s digital community provides opportunity for hundreds of market leaders to share ideas, network, and learn how to harness digital applications, relevant marketing tactics, and applications technology to grow business.

With the continued strong growth of new digital applications that drive print, the AppForum’s unique unbiased, vendor neutral approach has become essential to print and marketing service providers from around the world. In fact, attendance at the 2010 event was up 20% in spite of the difficult economy.

“The AppForum has the best content…period. The sessions are always educational, insightful and relevant to the ever changing business climate. It’s the only conference I won’t miss! ” says Modern Mail President, Doug Ainsworth. Adds Joyce Wallace from Access Business Group, “It felt like a true forum for users rather than some of the other vendor-selling-heavy conferences.”

David Hess, VP of Business Development at Harvest Communications, says “The AppForum is my favorite event of the year – excellent for learning, making connections, and networking.” Event attendees will find three days of focused educational sessions, lively panel discussions, keynotes from industry thought leaders, and the most productive networking they’ll do all year. This year’s Tracks:

• Business Growth Strategies

• Relevant Marketing Tactics

• Leading Edge Applications

• Application Technologies

Successful candidates will have unique, results-driven digital print or marketing stories, strategic business or sales knowledge, exceptional technical proficiencies, or expertise in new, profit-generating applications, including cross-media, direct marketing, web to print, QR codes, or social media.
