Expanded PRINT UV Conference Returns to Las Vegas on March 8-10
RIVER FALLS, WI—Feb. 9, 2009—Print UV 2009, the first and only conference dedicated exclusively to the burgeoning UV print market, has booked a return engagement March 8-10 at the all-new Encore Wynn Las Vegas. Following the enormous success of the inaugural Print UV conference in 2008, organizers of this year’s event are busy putting the final touches on a dynamic, cutting-edge educational and networking program designed to promote the growth of UV printing throughout the graphic arts industry.
“Last year’s event marked the first step toward organizing the UV community, and feedback was overwhelmingly positive,” says Stephen Metcalf, President and CEO of Air Motion Systems, founder and Platinum sponsor of the Print UV conference. “This year, we are set to outdo ourselves by providing attendees with even more opportunities to learn about exciting UV trends and innovations from expert practitioners, as well as to catch up on the latest advances in inks, coatings and equipment. In addition to presenting several conference sessions exploring the environmental benefits of UV printing, we also will announce the results of a new white paper on this important and timely topic.”
Get With the Program
The conference format is geared to the needs of executives, managers and master printers, who make daily decisions about implementing the UV process in their organizations. The conference agenda places heavy emphasis on peer-to-peer networking opportunities, UV business topics and UV technical strategies. Discussion topics will include “In-House R&D: Innovation with UV,” “UV on Plastics,” “UV Technology Update: Energy Efficiency, Digital Power and LED,” “Perfecting with UV,” and “Sustainable UV Printing,” among many others. Delivering the keynote address on Monday morning at 9:30 a.m. will be Warren Werbitt, President and CEO of Montreal’s Pazazz Printing on modern printing and the critical role the UV transformation has played in his company’s growth strategy. In 2008, Mr. Werbitt became a YouTube phenomenon for producing and starring in “Printing’s Alive,” a video valentine to the printing industry. In between sessions, attendees are invited to network with a “Who’s Who” of the North American printing market in luxurious surroundings at the Encore Wynn Las Vegas.
