Free In-plant Forums at Expo Almost at Capacity
Seats are filling up quickly for In-plant Impressions' popular In-plant Forums at PRINTING United Expo. These two gatherings were designed to bring in-plant managers together during the show, to network and learn about new opportunities while enjoying free breakfast and lunch.
Sponsored by Canon Solutions America, Fujifilm, and Swagforce, and in partnership with the In-plant Printing & Mailing Association (IPMA), the two forums will both take place on the second day of the three-day expo. They are open only to in-plants. To attend, managers must sign up separately for each forum, and space is limited. They will take place in room N237 (level 2) in the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Thursday Oct. 20. 8:30-10 (Breakfast)
Sponsored by Fujifilm and Swagforce, this session will highlight new service offerings that in-plants have added to increase their value. IPI Editor Bob Neubauer will moderate a panel discussion between in-plant managers to learn about new services they provide, such as wide-format printing, promotional product sales, apparel printing, and more. The session will give attendees ideas to help them add revenue and business, strengthening their in-plants.
Thursday Oct. 20. 12-1:30. (Lunch)
Sponsored by Canon Solutions America, this session will focus on how in-plants are using workflow automation to reduce costs, improve efficiency, and make up for staff vacancies. Automation is also enabling in-plants to take in more work than they could previously handle, cementing their value. The session will feature consultant, researcher and communication technology evangelist Pat McGrew to offer insights on the latest workflow technologies.
Both events are free to in-plants. The In-plant Forums are not the only events PRINTING United Expo has in store for in-plants, however. IPI’s partner on the forums, IPMA, will hold a happy hour on Thursday Oct. 20, from 4-6 p.m. at its booth (N2273). All in-plants are invited, IPMA members and non-members.
