“Being a keynote sponsor of an event like the Inkjet Summit gives Canon Solutions America the opportunity to not only interact with our customers and learn what makes their businesses successful, but to also foster thought leadership and development in the area of inkjet technology,” said Francis McMahon, Executive Vice President, Canon Solutions America. “Information gathering and researching inkjet and other solutions is more important than ever. The Inkjet Summit is a great environment to engage in this level of discussion through 1:1 meetings, case studies, and networking.”
“HP is proud to be a Keynote Sponsor of the Inkjet Summit for the seventh consecutive year,” said Vahaaj Khan, AMS PWP Sales Manager, HP. “We view this as an opportunity to learn about the latest trends in the industry and meet many prospects in a condensed three-day window. This event impresses us with attendees like CEOs and business owners taking keen interest in their business growth coming out of COVID-19. With workflow and finishing partners, press manufacturers, media companies and integrators - the attendees are able to conduct in-depth investment research, that otherwise would take months to accomplish.”
“Despite challenges from the pandemic, the business of inkjet continues to be strong and inkjet leaders continue to innovate. To continue this trajectory, collaboration and information sharing must be encouraged, and thankfully they are centerpieces to the Inkjet Summit experience,” remarked Heather Poulin, Vice President, Marketing, Commercial and Industrial Printing, Ricoh USA, Inc. “This year is critically important as business owners and senior managers are tasked with charting their course of business growth coming out of the pandemic. These are the exact times when collaborative experiences, like The Inkjet Summit, are most important to our collective future.”
Ken Ingram, President, SCREEN Americas commented, “We are excited to once again sponsor the Inkjet Summit, elevating this year to a Keynote Partner level. Attendees love the Inkjet Summit because of the opportunity to learn so much in a short period of time, and for networking with peers. For SCREEN, the Inkjet Summit enables us to have substantive discussions with a large number of prospective clients who are coming out of a difficult 2020. They are looking for new solutions to help strengthen their position and grow their business, and SCREEN is the perfect partner to help them accomplish this. We’ve always told anyone who asked that the Summit was a key factor in our early success and we think it may hold even greater potential going forward.”
The unique, invitation-only format of the event will bring together a select group of executive peers and help them understand how current and future production inkjet printing technology, software, and solutions will impact their businesses and investment plans. Sponsors will have ample opportunities to network with these highly qualified decision makers, including at social events and meals, private case study presentations, and prescheduled 1:1 meetings – all taking place in the plush resort setting of the Hyatt Lost Pines.
