Learn With Us · INKJET · FEB 15-19th

Inkjet is one of the hottest topics in the global printing industry. In this 'Learn With Us' event, we will deliver the information you need about the technology, the applications, and the business. This event is for PSP's, Converters, brand owners, publishers, and people considering Inkjet as part of their business.

Engagement and Commitment

'Learn With Us' is 100% LIVE, so what you see is what you get. Interviews, presentations, and even showing print samples will inspire and encourage interaction. We have presenters from leading vendors like HP, Canon, Hunkeler, Vpress, Horizon, EFI, AMS, and many more. But we also feature independent specialists like Pat McGrew, Simon Cooper, Marc Freitag, Jean Lloyd, and Morten Reitoft and a wealth of people that openly share their insights!

Many Good reasons to register

So many events - so why should you choose this one?
First of all, we believe the LIVE format is great, and you can always watch everything later, if better for you. However, 'Learn With Us' is a learning experience, and we have extended this in 2021 to include the delivery of physical samples. We also include pre-recorded films from printing companies that have already invested in Inkjet. We are confident that our 'Learn With Us' will do the only thing we intent - to teach!

How Post-Composition Print Tools will Drive..... 14:00

It is a new year and you are looking for that edge as a Print Service Provider (PSP). You may even consider yourself a Marketing Service Provider (MSP). In any case, you need fresh ideas for how to drive success for your operations through optimisation, remote working and, ultimately, cost savings. For your offerings, your print shop needs to take more orders into the print workflow. That work needs to have personalisation as an option and the security of tracking and reporting to ensure it is delivered. More than delivery, you also need a process that ensures billing accuracy, so none of your print shop profits stays on the table.  

In 2021, the way to drive your print shop’s boost in success can come from an unlikely player—post-composition print workflow solutions. We invite you to join a lively discussion with the mission to benefit Print Service Providers (PSPs) and their associated print shops. By taking on the right tools and making sure that those tools can grow and shrink easily with your needs, the door to new opportunities is set to open.

Analysts tell us that these themes will endure throughout 2021: 

· larger number of orders with smaller quantities 
· need for personalisation
· requirement for fast production and delivery
· requirement for competitive pricing. 

To support your customers, your print shop will need to be at the top of its optimisation game. You will need to have your cost savings strategy dialled in. We believe you will want to leverage post-composition print workflow tools so you can improve print-ready files coming in from customers. Moreover, we believe having a great relationship with experts in this area will bring you less stress and boost your success.

Join us for the conversation and accelerate your 2021 print shop success.
