Inkjet Summit Starts Monday
Next week more than 100 printers — including two dozen in-plant managers — will converge on the seaside Ponte Vedra Inn & Club, near Jacksonville, Fla., for the fifth annual Inkjet Summit. This year's event will be the largest to date; the entire Ponte Vedra Inn & Club will be taken over by participants, all eager to learn about production inkjet printing.
Once again the knowledgable Marco Boer, VP of I.T. Strategies, will act as conference chair. He will start the event Monday night with a keynote during which he will assess the status of production inkjet technology after 10 years of successful deployment, and review the new generation of entry-level systems that are putting inkjet within reach of in-plants.
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. IPG Editor Bob Neubauer will lead the in-plant track, providing an update on inkjet implementations at in-plants and facilitating a panel discussion of in-plant inkjet users. Sponsors will also present in-plant case studies featuring such successful implementations as those at the Church of Scientology International, the State of Colorado and Houston ISD.
Among the in-plants attending next week are managers from HealthSouth, Iowa State University, Michigan Farm Bureau, Navy Federal Credit Union, Farmers Insurance, the States of Michigan and Colorado, Houston ISD, and the Universities of Missouri, Oklahoma, Michigan and Virginia, to name a few.
