Printing Industries of America Announces Integrated Print Forum

PITTSBURGH—May 18, 2011—Printing Industries of America is proud to announce its newest conference, the Integrated Print Forum. Taking place in Pittsburgh on Oct. 24-25, 2011, the Integrated Print Forum will provide printers with an intimate environment to learn about the newest technologies and how to implement them into their reportoire to reach a greater profit potential.

As the industry evolves to take advantage of the variety of technical offerings available to printers, it’s paramount to design a conference that teaches cutting-edge techniques and showcases how to integrate print with other forms of media. The Integrated Print Forum does just that.

The forum will cover everything from integrated marketing campaign management to augmented reality to designing Websites for mobile applications—all with a focus on print service providers. Speakers at the conference come from a wide range of disciplines, including sales mavens, social media masters and marketing integration experts.

“We have assembled an interactive forum for printers to learn tactics that they can apply to their business as soon as they return home,” said Julie Shaffer, vice president of digital technologies, Printing Industries of America. “It’s important for printers to come together, share ideas, and learn about new technologies and opportunities that can help ensure our industry continues to evolve and meet the changing needs of consumers.”
