FOSTER CITY, CA—Aug. 30, 2010—EFI today announced the 12th annual Connect Users’ Conference will take place from April 26-29, 2011 at the Wynn Las Vegas.

The Connect lab area will once again showcase the full portfolio of EFI solutions, including the complete print MIS line-up (PrintSmith, Pace, Monarch, Radius, Digital StoreFront and more), numerous Fiery solutions, VUTEk, Rastek and Jetrion printers, as well as live demos of end-to-end workflow integrations. The event will also feature the return of the popular live auction.
The Connect conference will kick off with a lively “fireside chat” between Adobe President and CEO Shantanu Narayen and EFI CEO Guy Gecht on Tuesday evening, April 26. The two will discuss a variety of topics, including the future of printing and Adobe’s strategy moving forward.
