Air Motion Systems Becomes Founding Sponsor of Print UV 2008 Conference
LAS VEGAS--January 10, 2008--AMS today announced its role as a founding sponsorship of Print UV 2008, the first printing industry event focused exclusively on the growing UV printing market. Designed as an intimate, peer-oriented event, "Print UV" is sponsored by a founding group of key industry participants dedicated to encourage, promote and sustain the growth of UV printing in the global graphic communications industry.
"We are thrilled to be a founding sponsor in the formation of the Print UV 2008 Conference and the Print UV Association", remarked Hans Ulland, Co-Founder and Vice President of Sales for Air Motion Systems. "UV is one of the fastest-growing technologies in sheet-fed and web-offset printing, but as a community of practitioners, it has never been well organized. New standards and best practices are emerging quickly, but there has never been an easy way to share and disseminate information. The Print UV 2008 Conference - designed for printers and sponsored by multiple like-minded industry participants - is the first legitimate step in this direction."
Print UV 2008 will take place at the exclusive Wynn Las Vegas resort in Las Vegas, Nevada beginning Sunday, March 2nd and concluding on Tuesday, March 4th. The conference offers a full agenda of exciting topics and speakers on the subject of UV printing and coating, along with unparalleled networking opportunities featuring some of the most elite printers in North America.
With a format geared to the needs of executives, managers and master printers who are making decisions about the UV process in their organizations, the PrintUV conference is placing a heavy emphasis on networking, UV business topics and UV technical strategies.
Print UV conference attendees will learn about key ad media buying trends that are driving the rapid growth of UV printing, see how commercial and packaging printers are "making UV happen" in their press rooms, understand how to market and sell UV to customers and print buyers, hear how industry leaders have developed proprietary offerings with exotic UV printing and coating techniques, get tips from the pros and catch up on the latest advances in inks, coatings and equipment, explore process and environmental benefits for going 100% UV in the press room, and network in style with the "who's who" of the North American UV printing market.
Experts will be on hand from key suppliers in the industry, representing major press OEMs, UV equipment suppliers, ink and coating suppliers, as well as consumable suppliers, to answer questions both one-on-one, as well as in conference presentations and panel discussions.
Print UV 2008 will take place at the exclusive Wynn Las Vegas Resort March 2-4 in Las Vegas, Nevada - winner of the Mobil 5 Star and the AAA Five Diamond rating of excellence. For more information, visit www.printuv.com.
