Sponsor Registration Opens for Annual Print & Media Conference

CHESTNUT HILL, MA—June 17, 2011—If you serve people who work at the intersection of print and digital media, now is the time to grow your business by sponsoring Print Buyers International’s (PBI) 6th Annual Print & Media Conference.

This two-day conference on Sept. 13-14, 2011, is the year’s most important professional program for senior-level print buyers, print production specialists, graphic designers and marketing pros who want to learn from—and grow with—today’s fast-moving print and media changes. They are people who want to understand how companies like yours can help redefine their roles and fulfill their companies’ needs. A one-day PBI Boot Camp with additional sponsorship opportunities will precede the conference on Monday, Sept. 12.

This year, the 6th Annual Print & Media Conference will offer more benefits than ever to its generous sponsors. Co-located at GRAPH EXPO at McCormick Place in Chicago for the first time, the Conference will take place just steps away from the graphic arts industry’s biggest annual event. Every PBI sponsor will receive free tickets to the expansive GRAPH EXPO show floor with 500+ exhibitors, plus discounted prices from 22 hotels and major airlines.

But PBI’s biggest sponsor benefits will happen inside the Print & Media Conference Sponsor Center. There, our select group of 30 Conference sponsors will enjoy two days of non-stop networking and connection with hundreds of senior professionals who purchase or influence the purchase of print and related media. PBI sponsors are woven into the Conference’s fabric with easy access to the educational programs. In addition, designated Sponsor Center visit times, a cocktail party on Tuesday, September 13th, and interactions before, during and after all Conference sessions provide ongoing opportunities to network and connect with Conference attendees.

Creating a rewarding experience for every conference sponsor is a Print & Media Conference hallmark, says PBI founder and Conference host Margie Dana. “We focus relentlessly on our sponsors’ needs before, during and after the Conference, so they get the best value for their dollars,” she comments. “When our sponsors tell us, as they often do, that they’ve gained new business and made new valuable connections at the Print & Media Conference, we know our efforts have been worthwhile.”

With PBI Patron Sponsors Xerox and Solo Printing Inc. returning in 2011, it is clear that PBI’s efforts are paying off. To sweeten the experience even more, sponsors that sign up between now and July 31st will enjoy PBI’s generous Early Bird discount.

“For service providers, the 6th Annual Print & Media Conference is more than a Conference,” Dana says. “It’s a unique opportunity to introduce senior-level print buyers, creatives and marcom specialists to your company while making connections with the people you need to reach. I don’t know any company in any business that wouldn’t benefit from that kind of exposure.”
