As many know, WhatTheyThink will present our 2nd Print CEO Forum on October 1st and 2nd. This is an exclusive event for printing executives only. The Print CEO Forum will be held at the prestigious University Club in Chicago.
Since the announcement I have been contacted again by many of our sponsors and suppliers in the industry asking how they could sponsor or attend the conference. I have explained that this conference will be unlike any other since we will not have vendor/supplier sponsors in attendance. In conjunction with the CEO Forum, we will present the CEO of the Year award at a dinner ceremony. The award dinner is sponsored by manroland but is not part of the conference.
Our mission with this conference is to present objective content to attendees without any perception of an agenda from industry suppliers or sponsors. I wanted to just provide clarification again that this content will be presented without input from suppliers and we think this provides a unique venue for printing executives.
We want our attendees (printing executives) to know that they will be mingling only with their peers with no pressure from their suppliers. This is not to say that events that have sponsors are tainted. We believe an event without sponsors presents an opportunity to deliver a different experience for attendees. Last year’s event was great and this year will be even better.
If you are a printing executive, this event will detail what you should know about economics, resources, Internet, technologies, products, strategies, and trends that will shape the future of print. Structuring your printing business for success is the bottom line and our mission with the Print CEO Forum is to help you do that.
