GRAPH EXPO 2010 Announces Print Buyer Program Among Full Slate of Educational Seminars
The Print Buyer Forum, slated for Monday, October 4 and Tuesday, October 5, is for more experienced print buyers. Themed “Moving Modern Print Buyers Forward & Upward,” the two-day educational event will address the challenges print buyers face in this new print-buying environment. Sessions will include a workshop on how to achieve optimum on-the-job productivity with a roundup of tools that can help buyers prioritize their tasks; an interactive discussion among print-buying pros about their job challenges, ideas and resources; an overview of the trends and demographic changes affecting the U.S. printing industry; an introduction on how to use cross-media strategies to improve the bottom line; plus, a primer on new applications in digital printing.
New this year is the option for participants to select individual seminars to attend within the Print Buyer Forum. The entire forum features five seminars, two of which include breakfast and one that includes lunch, for a total of $299. (Priced individually, the five seminars would cost $549.)
