Wide-format Summit Goes Live
As the attendees of the ninth annual Inkjet Summit are winding down their program’s final day at the Hyatt Regency Lost Pines on July 28, attendees of the Wide-format Summit will be commencing the first day of theirs in the same elegant location. The overlap in scheduling is slight, but the similarities between the two NAPCO Media events are strong.
Like the Inkjet Summit, the Wide-format Summit (July 28-30) is an invitational, hosted conference for qualified attendees — in this case, actual and potential users of wide-format digital production printing equipment, software, and related supplies. Recognizing wide-format printing technology as a key driver of convergence — the movement of print service providers into adjacent areas of opportunity with the help of new solutions — NAPCO Media gave it an event of its own with the same proven meeting formula as the Inkjet Summit.
Presented virtually in 2020 due to the pandemic, the Wide-format Summit debuts as a live conference this year. The structure of its agenda parallels that of the Inkjet Summit: keynotes, general sessions, case studies, one-on-one meetings, and sponsor exhibits, as well as an abundance of networking opportunities.
The agenda spans three key application segments: textile, roll-to-roll, and flatbed. Topics to be addressed in the keynote and general presentations include:
- The Wide-format Landscape and Preparing for the Surge Ahead
- Four Topics the Wide-format Industry Cannot Ignore
- Why People Are Your Biggest Challenge and Greatest Opportunity
- Meeting the Needs of Tomorrow’s Buyers
- Designing Your Move into Digital Textiles
- Automation Is No Longer an Option
- The Art of Contingency Planning
Like the Inkjet Summit, the Wide-format Summit is designed to let attendees replace weeks, if not months, of individual research with one immersive, concentrated learning and networking experience. For complete details, visit WideFormatSummit.com.
