Wednesday 21 Aug at 14h30. Topic: Where next should we invest?
Thursday 22 Aug at 14h30. Topic: The Bigger Picture – an Insight Report.
Where next should we invest?
A discussion of what is coming over the next decade – what were the new ideas shown at drupa last year, what is being adopted in Europe and how is it being used, and what does it mean for us in the printing business? How will these new technologies shape our future investments and benefit our customers and ourselves? What else do we need to be considering apart from kit? Lloyd gives her view of the changes she has seen in the last twelve months, and what might happen next. There’s a lot more to print than printing.
The Bigger Picture – an Insight Report
What do our customers want from us as printing companies? Is it as cost driven as we think? This independent European research report published at drupa last year asks the questions of the print buyers – is print still important to your organisation? Does it work? What do you want from your print suppliers moving forward? How well are they providing this at the moment?
Who better to tell us where to improve our offering than our customers? Lloyd talks through the results – and offers her interpretation of them as a print company owner in the UK.
The conference will be held in Hall 2 under the mezzanine. Entrance to the Expo and conference is free, pre-register online: www.africaprintexpo.com. Please arrive promptly to secure your seat.
