This year’s DScoop Edge EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) caters to the needs of HP Graphic Arts users, and brings together partners, Print Service Providers (PSPs) and key decision makers who are passionate about the latest applications and solutions that are driving today’s success in the digital print world.
This year’s conference will be held from 19–21 June 2019 at PortAventura, Spain and focuses on hands-on training and education, business growth, strategic networking and innovation.
Perhaps most unique: the more than 25 education sessions and hands-on workshops are defined by PSPs and industry partners who know first-hand the challenges and opportunities printers and operators face. Registration is open now. This year’s theme, ‘Turning Ideas into Reality,’ speaks to print’s resurgence and the business-growth opportunities of digital print. It’s also a shout-out to the PSPs who create and deliver amazing campaigns and projects for their clients. Key focus areas are Edge-Ucation, Networking and Cutting-Edge Innovation.
Even the R&R and social activities are designed with a purpose: to encourage connection, collaboration and communication among attendees. This combination goes beyond the theoretical, beyond high-level tech talk, to help PSPs build their print business, expand and engage customers, and grow revenue.
Edge brings together all the players in the digital print ecosystem, delivering practical, exceptionally relevant tools, demonstrations, applications, and collaboration that will help PSPs maximise their graphic arts technology and equipment; stretch the boundaries of digital print into new frontiers; and help them print more, print smarter, and print more profitably.
Edge-Ucation sessions are designed by Dscoop’s PSP-led education committee, ensuring that the knowledge and skills training is immediately applicable. Sessions include:
• Trends and innovations in labels, packaging, textiles, Inkjet, large format and more.
• Ecommerce/web-to-print, personalization, branding.
• Operations sessions covering sustainability, automated workflow, lean production, process improvement and robotics.
• Working sessions to define your value proposition and design a solid business model.
• Hiring and retaining the next generation.
• Marketing, sales support, and how to develop warm leads on LinkedIn.
Attendees have consistently given Dscoop high marks for its networking opportunities. Because it is such a focused, collaborative community, printers and partners are able to expand their professional networks, build industry relationships and create more business through joint endeavors. PortAventura is the perfect backdrop for exciting social activities that take Dscoop’s emphasis on networking to a level beyond tradeshows and other conferences. Recognising that some of the best business conversations happen after the sessions, the Dscoop Edge team has created get-togethers, theme park adventures and parties that bring attendees together to continue the conversation in a more relaxed environment.
The 2600 square metre Solutions Showcase at Dscoop Edge spotlights the latest partner solutions and applications that are driving greater customer engagement and PSP productivity and growth.
‘This is a great opportunity to see a wide range of partners’ equipment and solutions that are absolutely relevant to growing your business and staying ahead of market trends,’ said Silvia Martinez, Dscoop’s global partner sales sirector. ‘Attendees can look forward to seeing the latest equipment from AB Graphic International, Horizon, Imaging Solutions, and Peleman, just to name a few.
