The audience totally filled the seminar presentation room at the Hilton Leningradskaya Hotel in Moscow and included many top managers of the Russian publishing and printing industry.
Seminar attendee Alexander Maximov, Development Director of Z-Card, commented, “This was a striking and very useful event. Before I came here, I had thought that it would be a usual routine conference for clients. But I’ve learned about many innovative technologies and ideas that can be turned into reality.
“The global situation has made everyone wake up. Many fresh ideas are emerging on the market.
Today, I met some of my old partners and we discussed new ideas. I sincerely thank PrintCity and the Guild of Press Publishers for this event!”
Boris Kagan, Production Director, Expert Media Holding indicated, “This is a very interesting event. This has been the third PrintCity event that I’ve visited. Every time I learn very useful information.
“PrintCity selects very good presentation topics and speakers. They discuss new topics and reveal new aspects of various issues. This time, I’ve especially liked the presentation about the paper web control and check-up system. It’s a very important aspect.”
Julia Kazakova, GIPP Executive Director, summarising the event said, “The idea of the conference is reflecting the situation at the market. Today the publishers are forced to optimize their production costs, the quantity of editions is decreasing, the layouts are changing, they are choosing cheaper paper grades and printing services. But it is necessary to think about future development during the time of economic downturns.
“By initiating this conference the organisers wanted to tell about the new possibilities existing in the printing industry, of paper companies, of machine producers that can offer new solutions to advertisers and readers. For the first time such a conference was not a client event where the companies just sell their products and services. The participants mentioned that the conference has added value in providing new possibilities during the economic downturn.”
GIPP is a non-profit organisation of Russian print publishers and suppliers. The PrintCity Alliance has a long history of delivering successful seminars in Russia, in both Moscow and St. Petersburg, across the commercial printing, publishing and packaging sectors.
