Tuesday, February 28, 2006

Press release from the issuing company

PARAMUS, N.J., FEBRUARY 27, 2006 - The 14th Annual NAPL & PIA/GATF Sheetfed Conference, scheduled for June 11-13, 2006, at the Marriott O'Hare Hotel in Chicago, features a comprehensive program covering the full range of technical, operational, human resources, and management issues facing today's sheetfed printers. Addressing the full gamut of sheetfed printing issues, the Conference has value for a wide range of sheetfed company personnel and executives, including pressroom supervisors, operations and production managers and lead operators, as well as company CEOs and presidents. The program includes more than 25 pre-conference, general and breakout sessions led by key industry leaders, who will provide participants with the insights they need to improve pressroom and company-wide performance. In a new feature this year, participants will be able to customize their Conference experience by choosing among four function-specific tracks: - Production. Nuts-and-bolts information on improving sheetfed pressroom processes form start to finish. - Operations. A "big picture" look at leveraging equipment and technology, increasing capacity, and other strategic operations issues. - Supervisory Excellence: How to equip your employees with the tools and the confidence that will enhance job satisfaction and help them achieve your company's objectives. - Leadership: An exploration of the critical leadership skills and strategies that will help move your organization forward in today's challenging business environment. Each track includes targeted sessions and interactive roundtable discussions, where colleagues can address the specific issues they're facings and share their insights with the entire conference. In other Conference highlights: - PIA/GATF will present results of its 2006 Sheetfed Production Benchmarking Study, in which the same multi-color, two-sided job was produced by more than 50 companies, providing invaluable benchmark statistics on various aspects of file processing, platemaking, and makeready. - A dynamic session, "45 Ideas in 45 Minutes," will feature a recap of insights gained in the general and track breakout sessions, focusing on strategies to help sheetfed printers improve company performance. - Pre-Conference sessions feature subject matter experts on a range of informative topics, including press optimization, color theory and perception, lean manufacturing, hybrid UV, color management, and HR benefit. Conference fee is $595 for NAPL and PIA/GATF members, and $695 for non-members. Companies can maximize the benefits of the Conference by registering a number of employees from different areas to take advantage of multiple-registrant discounts.
