Keynote: PRIMIR UV Market Report (Margaux 2)

Marco Boer – IT Strategies, Inc

Last year we announced that NPES and PRIMIR had funded a special research project on the adoption, use and growth of UV in the printing industry. This year, Print UV attendees will be the first to hear the results of this report that will dive into the size and segments of the UV printing market. The report will provide clarity and focus on the state of this market while identifying major barriers and opportunities for everyone involved in the UV Graphic Arts Industry. The results are both interesting and thought provoking to see how your company stacks up in this still growing field.

Matching Offset Coatings on Digitally Printed Material (Margaux 2)

This could be the story of “When Worlds Collide”! It seems that virtually every printer has added a form of digital capacity to subsidize his or her printing efforts. A common question that is asked of Print UV is how do you match offset coatings to the digitally printed output? We have assembled a panel of experts to tell you how it can be accomplished, if at all.

“Bringing It All Together” Marketing New Processes to your Customers (Margaux 2)

Your company has spent millions of dollars investing in new equipment and even more in developing new processes, yet your sales force keeps bringing you low margin four-color opportunities on C1S. How you educate both your sales group and your customers of the fantastic offerings you have invested in is an often missed step. A printer who has gone through six plus years of investments in equipment and process development will share their successful approach in reaching out to both sales and customers.
