New Vision 3 Summit Leadership Conference Announced by Industry Associations
RESTON, VA—The National Association for Printing Leadership (NAPL); NPES The Association for Suppliers of Printing, Publishing and Converting Technologies (NPES); and, Printing Industries of America have joined forces to create a dynamic new leadership conference for graphic communications executives—the Vision 3 Summit—slated for March 13–16, 2011 at the J.W. Marriott Desert Springs Resort in Palm Desert, CA. This high-level program will blend the unique strengths of each of the three organizations to provide a single, authoritative conference that addresses the variety of needs of company owners and executives.
Open to both graphic communications service providers and vendors, the two-and-a-half day conference will provide the latest business intelligence covering all aspects of running a graphic communications business. Unlike other programs, the Vision 3 Summit takes a broad and distinctly management-level approach, providing up-to-the-moment industry trends, technology updates and market research from the standpoint of what matters most to a person in charge of running a company.
"From making the most judicious financial decisions in this economic environment to overcoming staffing challenges and assessing the most effective strategies for growing your business, management-level staff face challenges that differ significantly from the work issues of other employees," observed Joseph P. Truncale, President and CEO of NAPL. "Often these needs aren't effectively met in other educational venues, which try to offer a little something for everyone. With the Vision 3 Summit, we are specifically addressing the variety of issues that graphic communications business leaders face, be they an owner of a 20-employee print shop, an executive of a multimillion-dollar multimedia service provider, or upper management at an equipment vendor."
The conference will offer a mix of subject-matter experts, panel discussions with real-life business examples, and inspiring keynote addresses from both professional and industry-specific leaders. In addition to the management-level viewpoint, emphasis will also be on tactical how-to advice and strategy.
