    Keynote User Panel: Inkjet - It’s About Adding Value

    As inkjet technology becomes more prevalent in the market, service providers will need to evaluate how to differentiate from the competition. Turnaround time, quality and affordability are table stakes. Differentiation means that service providers need to provide demonstrable results through better use of data, design and cross channel capabilities to enhance digital print and influence the results and value delivered to the end customer. In this keynote panel discussion, you will hear from customer users from our keynote sponsors about how they are embodying inkjet with value added solutions and services to help customers enhance response rates; improve time to market and impact overall bottom line profitability.

    General Session: Print - An Emerging Digital Marketing Champion

    As draconian changes in privacy and ad tracking continue to roil the Ad Tech industry, the new reality is setting in that the days of relative regulatory freedom are ending. While the rush is on to manufacture a privacy-compliant solution, a seemingly paradoxical trend is emerging: print is becoming a digital marketing champion. In this session, we will see case studies and learn how ” digital browse intent” is driving catalog and direct mail to new heights of performance.

    General Session: Dealing with the New Normal: Rebuilding and Resuscitating Your Business

    The COVID-19 pandemic won’t last forever. Eventually, this will all end. The “new normal” won’t necessarily fade away and service providers need to redefine “business as usual.” This session is designed to share strategies on how to capitalize on the emerging opportunities.

     

    Your peers will be discussing:

    • Product and service gaps may have arisen and how customers in various industry segments are looking for more effective ways to communicate with their client base…this means more and new applications focused on new customer acquisition and retention
    • Ways to streamline operations based on necessary staffing reductions
    • While not something to celebrate, how to capitalize on competition that may have been eliminated and the resulting new client opportunity
    • Identifying new talent that is available and eagerly looking for jobs

    General Session User Panel: Veteran Inkjet Users Share Their Triumphs and Tribulations

    Much has changed in almost a decade since these early production inkjet adopters installed their first output devices. These long-time users will share their experiences of what went right, what they would have done differently, and the key considerations for print providers seeking to move forward. They’ll also discuss the ramifications for those who remain on the sidelines hesitant to adopt.
