EFI Expects Record Attendance at This Week's Connect Conference
EFI is on track to set another new record for its Connect users’ conference, which is taking place this week in Las Vegas. More than 200 sessions are being offered this year—the most ever at a Connect conference—and the number of customers scheduled to attend has eclipsed last year’s attendance.
IPG Editor Bob Neubauer and Publisher Mike Hempstead will both be at the conference, joining attendees from 30 different countries. Connect will feature sessions on EFI's numerous technologies. The expanded slate of educational offerings reflects the scope of opportunities possible with newer, advanced workflows in the comprehensive EFI Productivity Suite introduced at Connect 2015.
Connect also has new sessions addressing fabric graphic display applications with EFI Reggiani technology—a segment that is in the early stages of analog-to-digital transition and is therefore primed for rapid adoption.
“EFI has always aimed at providing the best knowledge and education to improve print operations, but now...we are also seeing more people interested in growing their business than ever before because of new applications demonstrated by EFI and our partners at the conference,” said Guy Gecht, EFI’s CEO. “This combined with sessions like the Steve Wynn keynote will provide important insights on how to use global trends in building a more competitive business.”
Connect 2016 also features keynotes from Epicomm Chief Economist Andy Paparozzi, and a number of EFI executives. And, for the third consecutive year, industry analyst firm InfoTrends is conducting a track of business development sessions at the conference.
Along with exhibits from EFI’s industry leading portfolio of Fiery digital front end technologies, print MIS/ERP software, Web-to-print and eCommerce systems, and UV inkjet printers, this year’s conference also features numerous exhibits from partner companies, including Xerox, Canon U.S.A., Duplo, Kodak, Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Ricoh Production Print and many others.
