DICE will hold its annual meeting in Las Vegas, Nev. from Oct. 11th to Oct. 13th, where Presstek Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, Todd Chambers, along with other DICE sponsors, will participate in a panel discussion on “Vendors’ Views of the Future.” The panelists will discuss what trends they are seeing in the digital printing marketplace and how those trends will impact the industry and the role of print going forward. They will also discuss success factors and growth opportunities for their companies as well as the industry.
“We see Presstek’s digital offset technology as highly complementary to the digital printing technology employed by our current members, in fact, many of our members already have a Presstek DI running alongside their digital toner press,” states DICE Executive Director, Michael Vinocur. He adds: “DI presses are being placed in a growing range of environments including commercial printers of all sizes, digital printers, in-plants and vertical markets like mail houses and direct marketing agencies. We look forward bringing this range of user experience to our forums.”
“Presstek is excited to become an active participant in DICE and welcomes the opportunity for our DI users to learn from and to share their successes with the DICE community helping them become more capable, profitable and competitive,” Chambers said. “DICE’s inclusion of a Presstek community – where participants can speak with peers about DI technology – represents growing recognition of the benefits that DI can bring into the digital production environment. We believe that all printers can benefit from a forum where they can learn best practices from each other and how to maximize the potential of their businesses.”
