2015 Inkjet Summit: Advancing the Market Through Sponsor-Attendee Collaboration
PHILADELPHIA and MARSHFIELD, MA—October 28, 2014—The third annual Inkjet Summit will be held at the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, April 27-29, 2015. The Inkjet Summit is an invitation-only, hosted event specifically designed for senior managers and business executives at printing companies and corporate enterprises who are looking to develop strategies, understand their options and make major investment decisions around production inkjet digital printing technology.
"The Inkjet Summit Conference has become the must-attend event for anyone who is considering a major investment in inkjet technologies in the future. The level of detail and discussions of practical digital solutions cannot be found in other industry trade show events," commented Ray Hartman, Vice President of Digital Print Services at TransCentra.
"We found the Inkjet Summit to be a great venue to meet with customers to discuss the latest in inkjet technology. We had amazing customer feedback from our 1:1 meetings and board room presentations. This is definitely an exciting opportunity to meet with potential customers. The Inkjet Summit is a well-rounded, balanced approach to building customer relationships, learning from trusted industry experts and to share the future and value of inkjet technology," stated Todd Smith, Manager of Product Marketing, Inkjet Products, Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A.
Attendees at the 2015 Inkjet Summit will meet and learn from some of the leading experts in the production inkjet space through a conference program led by Marco Boer, Vice President at IT Strategies, and a team of key advisory board members and speakers. Advisory Board members include:
- Marco Boer, Vice President, IT Strategies (Conference Chair)
- Elizabeth Gooding, President, Gooding Communications Group
- Barb Pellow, Group Leader, InfoTrends
- Skip Henk, EDP, President and CEO, Xplor International
- Roger P. Gimbel, EDP, President, Gimbel & Associates
- Mary Schilling, Owner, Schilling Inkjet Consulting
- Mark Michelson, Editor-in-Chief, Printing Impressions
- Charles Pesko, Strategic Advisor, nGage Events
While users are looking for information and guidance, suppliers are looking for ways to identify and develop relationships with these potential buyers specifically interested in production inkjet digital printing solutions. The Inkjet Summit is designed to meet both of these needs for attendees and sponsors.
Printing company and corporate enterprise executives who attend have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with, and listen to focused case studies from, leading inkjet solution suppliers. They also learn from top industry experts and their peers through keynote sessions and workshops, real-life end user panels, and print market segment-focused breakout sessions. And they build long-lasting relationships through numerous networking receptions and meals, optional golf and other fun activities.
"It is difficult to find time to be away from the office, but the Inkjet Summit packed so much value into a few days that I would not hesitate to attend again. The one-on-one and small group exposure to the technology was extremely informative," commented Chris Zarnosky, President, Data Services Div., DirectMail.com.
The response from users, past sponsors and new sponsors has been overwhelming heading into the 2015 Inkjet Summit. The April event will bring together a focused group of attendees, as well as sponsors that represent all aspects of inkjet solutions, including engines, workflow & software, feeding & finishing, mailing, paper, inks and supplies. Sponsorship opportunities are still available, but will most likely be sold out in early 2015.
"Our goal is to once again bring together leading suppliers and qualified attendees who are investigating and/or expanding their inkjet solutions into an intimate learning and educational environment facilitated by experts. Attendees will learn from experts, leading suppliers and, most importantly, their peers on how to approach inkjet and how to be successful," said David Pesko, Senior Vice President at nGage Events. "Our previous events accomplished this and 2015 will again truly be a win-win for both sponsors and attendees."
Inkjet Summit 2015 is scheduled to take place at the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, April 27-29. For information on sponsoring and/or attending, please visit www.ijsummit.com or contact David Pesko at email@example.com
