Graph Expo 2012 Event with Dr. Joe Webb

"The Business of Printing"

Sponsored by:

Join us at Graph Expo on Monday, October 8th, from 8:00 to 10:00 AM in Room S105D for our annual breakfast and thought-provoking talk by Dr. Joe Webb, Director of WhatTheyThink's Economics and Research Center. In its 10th year, this popular event is sponsored by EFI and will be kicked off by EFI CEO Guy Gecht.

Printing businesses have realized that their market focus must be more creative and dynamic as they both compete with and embrace digital media. Those two concepts present an interesting paradox that underscores the need for planning and superior execution of those plans.

Dr. Webb offers insights into the key steps required to creating a flexible organization built on a strong, unshakable foundation... delivered in his well-known and contrarian style, followed by the usual lively Q&A . Attendees are sure to leave this event with actionable ideas they can put into play immediately.

Topics include:

  • Economic overview and the post-election economy

  • It's the printing BUSINESS that matters, not just PRINT

  • The paradox of digital media: using it and competing against it

  • Essential aspects of a flexible, yet unshakable, print business: its people and investments

Dr. Joe Webb is a recognized marketing authority, forecaster and one of the best known speakers in our industry. (See his bio here.)
