February 15, 2010
ROCHESTER, NY—Feb. 15, 2010—Celebrating the 15th anniversary of the Graphic Users Association (GUA) North American Conference, the 2010 GUA conference theme is “U never stop growing your knowledge, your business, your network, your career.” Sponsored by Kodak and managed by the GUA Board, the 2010 GUA North American Conference will take place April 11-14 at its birthplace—the Sheraton Wall Center located in the heart of downtown Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

“As with our 2009 conference, the economy is the headline of the day. The 2010 GUA Conference will be hosting sessions, roundtable discussions and GUA classes on how to succeed and do more with less,” said Tom Clifford, GUA President. “This year’s GUA University Classes will focus on integrating KODAK Solutions as we all work to reduce costs and increase production efficiencies in our businesses.”
