“The ability for customers to have one-on-one conversations with Kodak’s solution managers and executives sets the GUA Conference apart each year,” said Clifford. “The GUA University Classes, roundtable discussions, and focused time with Kodak’s technical personnel represent valuable resources that can improve productivity and profitability among attendees’ businesses.”
The first two days of the conference, June 6 and 7, are dedicated to GUA University Classes. The classes offer in-depth information on Kodak’s solutions and services including hands-on learning in small class sizes taught by industry-leading instructors.
