The Vision 3 Summit Rocked
On day three I was honored to open the conference by facilitating a pacesetters panel featuring Craig Faust from Quad/Graphics, Bill Gilmer of Wordsprint, and Scott Vaughn from the Standard Group. All three discussed how they are transforming their businesses by diversifying their offerings and working more strategically with clients. The conference concluded with economist No.3—the ever entertaining and insightful Andy Paparozzi from NAPL who summarized all of the conference presentations with a cogent blueprint for printers to use to increase their profitability.
In addition to the aforementioned keynote presentations, participants had the opportunity to partake in numerous breakout sessions on a myriad of topics, including the future of direct marketing, harnessing megatrends for profitability, cementing client relationships with social media, integrating offset and digital technologies, and much more.
All in all, the Vision 3 Summit rocked! It brought three organizations together, served as the venue for one of the largest printing industry events in 2011, and demonstrated that one plus one plus one equals a lot more than three!
Make sure you mark your calendars for the next Summit which will be held February 19–22, 2012, in Marco Island, Florida.
