New York, NY; July 24, 2001 - What will printing industry survivors in 2005 look like, and what will they have to do in order to survive?
That's the question Robert H. Rosen, President of R.H. Rosen Associates, New York, has been charged with answering as both the moderator and a speaker on a panel of graphic arts professionals at the wrap-up keynote session of the PRINT '01 conference and exhibition entitled, "Survivor: Who'll be around to attend PRINT '05?"
Open to all PRINT '01 attendees, this final keynote session slated for Tuesday, September 11 from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. (General Session C) is designed to provide attendees with insights about the characteristics of printers most likely to survive and flourish during the four years leading up to PRINT '05.
"We've heard the prognostications and forecasts about the printing industry, some dire, some optimistic. This keynote session will be a great opportunity for attendees to put things into perspective and perhaps sneak a glimpse at their own company's future," says Rosen.
Bob Rosen is a former investment banker and the previous owner of six graphic arts companies. In 1987 he founded R.H. Rosen Associates, Inc., a New York and San Francisco-based consulting firm that specializes solely in the graphic arts industry. Since then, the firm has worked with over 400 graphic arts companies, helping them to be more competitive and profitable while operating within the industry's difficult competitive environment.
Other speakers at the Tuesday wrap-up keynote session will include Robert Kashan, CEO of New York City-based IGI-Earth Color, one of the industry's fastest growing firms, and Eric Rubin, COO of Cleveland's Modern International Graphics, another industry-leading firm that is successfully addressing the challenges of a tough competitive environment.
PRINT '01, which will be held at Chicago's McCormick Place from September 6-12, 2001, is the largest and most comprehensive trade show held in the world this year for graphic design, digital prepress, printing, publishing, and converting technology. It will play host to a projected 90,000 industry professionals from throughout the United States and more than 100 countries.
