Dscoop6 Conference Sets New Record for AttendanceFebruary 22, 2011
The Dscoop Board of Directors presented the 2011 Jack Glacken Award for outstanding contributions to the Dscoop community to Eric Hawkinson, Dscoop executive director; and Leta Wood, HP customer forums manager and Dscoop liaison. Both were cited as key to the successful growth of the organization.
The keynote session on Friday featured Vyomesh Joshi, executive vice president, HP Imaging and Printing Group, who brought customers from the photo, grand format, publishing, commercial and label and packaging segments to the stage to explain some of the secrets behind their success and share what they wanted from HP. The overarching request was for HP to keep focusing on innovation and developing products to open up new markets.
“Dscoop serves an important need for our customers, and this year’s extraordinary attendance reflects how much they want to learn and grow their business,” said Jan Riecher, vice president and general manager of the U.S. Graphics Solutions Business in the Imaging and Printing Group at HP. “HP is excited to work closely with Dscoop this year to launch new types of tools that members are asking for as they see different types of opportunities emerge in the marketplace.”
“Dscoop6 was as exciting as I had anticipated,” said Sue Rescigno, president of Rescigno’s Mailing Services in Bridgeview, IL. “I went with the goal of bringing back three new ideas to research and accomplish for the next year, and I have come back with many more.”
"By every account, Dscoop6 has been the best event yet,” said Hawkinson, “not only the turnout, but the impressive educational content, the new business development tools offered, the Solutions Showcase and the immense amount of networking have all have exceeded my wildest expectations."
Dscoop7 will be held March 22-24, 2012, at the Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center in Washington, DC. For the latest information on the event and Dscoop, visit www.dscoop.org.
