Inkjet Summit Just 10 Days Away
After a very successful in-person Inkjet Summit in July 2021, the event will celebrate its 10th anniversary in just 10 days at the Hyatt Lost Pines in Austin, Texas. More than 125 printers — including about two dozen in-plant managers — will be on hand, with more than 300 people total. Organized by IPI's parent company, PRINTING United Alliance, the invitation-only event will provide attendees with an in-depth education about production inkjet printing.
In his role as conference chair, Marco Boer, VP of I.T. Strategies, will start the event Monday night with a provocative keynote exploring how automation is driving the inkjet opportunity. Also on the docket that night, Barb Pellow, of Pellow & Partners, will lead a panel discussion with four inkjet press users focusing on their success stories. Then Mark Michelson, editor of Printing Impressions, will tackle the topic of staff shortages by interviewing a panel of printers about how they are attracting new employees.
For three days, in-plant managers will mingle with printing company owners and senior-level operations managers, sharing real-life experiences and enjoying a nonstop program of keynotes, user panel discussions, case studies and expert consultant presentations. IPI Editor Bob Neubauer will lead the in-plant track, providing an update on inkjet installations at in-plants and facilitating a panel discussion of in-plant inkjet users. Sponsors will also present in-plant case studies featuring successful inkjet implementations.
Among the in-plants attending next week are managers from Des Moines Public Schools, Medical Mutual of Ohio, The Sherwin-Williams Co., University of Nebraska-Lincoln, University of California-Davis, Shelter Insurance, the State of Nebraska, The University of Texas at Austin, Ohio University, Geisinger, Protective Life Insurance, Houston ISD, the State of Kansas, Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, and the U.S. Government Publishing Office, to name a few.
