Tuesday, August 31, 2010
Foster City, California - EFI, a world leader in customer-focused digital printing innovation, today announced the 12th annual Connect users' conference will take place next year from April 26 to April 29 at the Wynn Las Vegas. Connect enables print industry leaders from around the world to attend educational sessions, test drive the latest EFI products, voice their opinions at user group meetings, discuss industry trends, and network with peers.
The Connect lab area will once again showcase the full portfolio of EFI solutions, including the complete print MIS line-up (PrintSmith, Pace, Monarch, Radius, Digital StoreFront and more), numerous Fiery solutions, VUTEk, Rastek and Jetrion printers, as well as live demos of end-to-end workflow integrations. The event will also feature the return of the popular live auction.
The Connect conference will kick off with a lively "fireside chat" between Adobe President and CEO Shantanu Narayen and EFI CEO Guy Gecht on Tuesday evening, April 26. The two will discuss a variety of topics, including the future of printing and Adobe's strategy moving forward.
"EFI Connect 2011 will build on our very successful 2010 event, offering attendees many opportunities for learning, discussion and idea exchange," said Frank Mallozzi, senior vice president of worldwide sales and marketing, EFI. "We'll showcase our full portfolio of products and solutions, including our newest addition, EFI Radius packaging software. The lab area, together with exciting speakers, in-depth educational sessions and industry vendor booths, all make Connect a 'must attend' event."
"We have been long-time believers in EFI Connect, and last year we had eight people across our six companies attend the conference," said Joan B. Davidson, group president of Sheridan Publications Services at The Sheridan Group. "The opportunity to network with peers is invaluable, as well as the chance to look ahead and learn about what's coming next. Each year we bring back ideas that we put into action."
