On Demand Show to Feature Allied Events
NEW YORK CITY—Slated to run April 7-9 at the Jacob K. Javits Center, the 2003 edition of the On Demand Digital Printing and Publishing Conference & Exposition is being held in conjunction with two other events—the AIIM 2003 Conference & Exposition and TeleCon Collaborate 2003 Conference & Exposition.
AIIM International is an association for the global enterprise content management (ECDM) industry and focuses on the technologies used to create, capture, customize, deliver and manage enterprise content to support business processes. TeleCon Collaborate showcases solutions that enhance productivity and performance within the enterprise, including videoconferencing, Web conferencing and project management tools.
The combined event will feature several marquee names in conference sessions that should be of interest to the commercial printing community.
Monday's keynote will be headlined by Arthur Sulzberger Jr., chairman and publisher of the New York Times. Sulzberger is to receive the 2003 Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) Isaiah Thomas Award in Publishing. RIT's School of Print Media presents this honor (sponsored by Xerox) annually for outstanding contributions to the publishing industry. The award is named in tribute to Isaiah Thomas, a pioneer of the American printing industry.
Following the day's keynote, Charlie Pesko Jr., managing director of CAP Ventures, will present "Strategies for Survival and Growth: Re-Defining the Business of Print." This annual industry update will examine how print-on-demand drives growth in the market and enables adopters to offer solutions that will ensure their survival. Next up on the schedule is the U.S. Public Printer, Bruce R. James, who will explore "The Changing Nature of Print Communications."
Among the panel discussions geared to commercial printers is Tuesday's "Beyond Print: The Value-added Services Opportunity." The session will explore the value-added service opportunities for print service providers, recipes for success and barriers to implementation. On Wednesday, "An Economic Forecast for the Print Industry" will feature a panel of experts offering relevant information about the current market and the economic climate moving forward.
