Air Motion Systems Sponsors Print UV 2008 Conference
ARVADA, CO--February 21, 2008--Air Motion Systems, the leading North American manufacturer of high-performance UV curing systems, IR/Hot Air drying systems and related accessories for the printing and finishing industries, is the founding sponsor of Print UV 2008, a new, peer-oriented industry conference focused exclusively on the growing UV printing market.
Designed for printers who are serious about differentiating, growing and profiting with UV printed media, Print UV 2008 and the PrintUV online community are co-sponsored by a group of key industry participants dedicated to encouraging, promoting and sustaining the growth of UV printing in the global graphic communications industry. Founding co-sponsors include major press manufacturers, UV equipment suppliers and suppliers of inks, coatings and consumables.
"We are thrilled to play a founding role 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. "Although UV is one of the fastest-growing technologies in sheetfed and web offset printing, its community of practitioners has never been well organized. New standards and best practices are emerging quickly, but there has never been an easy way to disseminate and share 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 2 and concluding on Tuesday, March 4. The conference format is geared to the needs of executives, managers and master printers who make daily decisions about implementing the UV process in their organizations. The conference agenda places a heavy emphasis on networking opportunities, UV business topics and UV technical strategies.
Attendees will learn about key ad media buying trends that are driving the rapid growth of UV printing and hear how commercial and packaging printers are "making UV happen" in their press rooms. They also will learn how to market and sell UV, 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. Finally, participants will explore the process and environmental benefits of going 100 percent VOC-free UV in the pressroom, and network in style with the "who's who" of the North American UV printing market.
