Sixth Inkjet Summit Promises to Highlight Successful Inkjet Press Adoption
The sixth annual Inkjet Summit will be held at the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., April 9-11, 2018. The Inkjet Summit is an invitation-only, hosted event specifically designed for senior managers and business executives at printing companies and corporate enterprises who are looking to develop strategies, understand their options and make major investment decisions around production inkjet digital printing technology.
The focus of the 2018 Inkjet Summit will be on sharing insight on key factors of successful production inkjet press adoption. Panels and presentations will include sessions on press implementations, sales requirements, end-to-end workflows and technology options. Application segments covered include everything from Transaction and Direct Mail/Marketing through Publishing, General Commercial and In-Plant printing.
According to Marco Boer, Chair of the Inkjet Summit and VP at IT Strategies: “What makes the Inkjet Summit so impactful to prospective production inkjet buyers is that there is no other event in the world where so much decision-making information is packed into a 3-day period. Attendees will tell you that it is like drinking from a fire hose.”
"This was my first Inkjet Summit and I attended not knowing what to expect. I was interested in gaining knowledge of inkjet printing so that I could make informed decisions. The Summit far exceeded my expectations because of the focus on education. Industry experts, vendors and attendees were all committed to a learning experience. I left with knowledge that was actionable, specific things that will have a positive impact on our journey into inkjet printing."
— Rick Elliott, Director, Corporate Support Services, Mutual of Omaha

While users are looking for information and guidance, suppliers are looking for ways to identify and develop relationships with these potential buyers specifically interested in production inkjet digital printing solutions. The Inkjet Summit is designed to meet both of these needs for attendees and sponsors.
"The Inkjet Summit provided me an opportunity to obtain an overall understanding of inkjet technology. Since this is the new technology in our industry it was a must for me to learn more about it from supply availability, capabilities, opportunities, and the challenges that exist in this technology. The broad overview from process, paper, presses and finishing was tremendous. The opportunity to meet with the suppliers one-on-one to talk about specific applications to my company was invaluable. You cannot have that type of interaction at any other conference."
- Dale Park, President, Action Graphics
Printing company and corporate enterprise executives who attend have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with, and listen to focused case studies from, leading inkjet solution suppliers. They also learn from top industry experts and their peers through workshops, real-life end user panels, and print market segment-focused breakout sessions.
"Everything about the Inkjet Summit was extremely informative! The case studies, user testimonials, and networking made a huge difference for me." - David Gaines, Supervisor, BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee
The response from users, past sponsors and new sponsors has been overwhelming heading into the 2018 Inkjet Summit. The April event will bring together a focused group of attendees, as well as sponsors that represent all aspects of inkjet solutions, including engines, workflow and software, feeding and finishing, mailing, paper, inks and supplies.
