Welcome to the Vision 3 Summit Blog Series
The Vision 3 Summit has gathered together some of the greatest and most innovative speakers in the industry, and we thought it would be a shame to limit the sharing of ideas and solutions to just the four days the conference takes place. In the coming weeks, this blog will play host to many of the leaders in the industry who will discuss how to take advantage of new technologies, stay ahead of trends, and become an industry leader.
As we count down to the Vision 3 Summit (10 weeks away!), we have many of our speakers lined up to blog. You’ll hear from specialists at NAPL and NPES, along with Printing Industries of America. In addition to hearing from the associations, we’ll make sure to have content from some of the innovative printing companies that are helping us make the Vision 3 Summit a groundbreaking leadership conference.
We’ll be covering some of the hot topics and trends more in depth at the conference, but these post will give you a great idea about where the industry is heading and what to keep an eye out for.
Our industry is adopting new technology and changing faster than ever, so we’re really excited about using this blog series as a platform to help educate printers on topics such as social media, sustainability, economics, future trends and marketing. We’ll be posting weekly, so be sure to bookmark this page and check back often.
Please don’t hesitate to engage with us on the blog posts. We’re here to help spread information. If you have any questions or comments, we’d love to hear them!
I want to thank Printing Impressions for allowing us this blog space. They’re our media sponsors for this great event, and we appreciate all of their help and support!
