Press release from the issuing company

Xplor 2003 TORRANCE, Calif.--Sept. 30, 2003-- To meet industry demand for education and insight into best practices for Government Printing, Xplor is offering a specialized Government Printing Forum during the 24th Annual Xplor Global Conference and Exhibit. Scheduled for Tuesday, October 28th from 8 - 11:30 a.m., the forum features a keynote from Bruce R. James, Public Printer of the United States, U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO), and a presentation by William A. Gindlesperger, Chairman & CEO of e-LYNXX Corporation. The forum promises a wealth of information for professionals in this industry. James and Gindlesperger will share industry insight gained from their extensive experience with the GPO and other government printing and procurement organizations. Over the last few years government printing has been greatly impacted because of e-commerce. Federal agencies, like Xplor attendees, need their support vendors to deliver real-world business insight and best-practice scenarios that they can leverage in their long-term strategies and day-to-day operations, especially in light of changes in electronic and printing technologies. The forum will also include an interactive vendor panel from the "GPO Top 50 Vendor List": Bob Nesbit, President of CDCI/Sourcelink, Leroy Corbin, V-P/New Business Development of NPC Inc., Joan Weber, V-P/Sales of Balmar Printing and Mike Burrows, President, Burrows Consulting, Inc., representing American MultiMedia Corp. This panel session will be moderated by Wilma M. Grant, Publications Manager, Supreme Court of the U.S. and Frederic G. Antoun, Jr., Counsel to the Printing Industries of America -- Govt. Affairs Division for Govt. Printing/Information (www.printlaw.com). The forum will wrap-up with a presentation by Antoun. Xplor's Global Conference and Exhibit runs from October 26-29, 2003 in Atlanta, Georgia. Full Conference and Exhibit attendees and one-day (Tuesday) Conference and Exhibit attendees are welcome to attend the Government Printing Forum. More information on the Conference & Exhibit can be found at www.xplor.org/xplor2003. "Xplor recognizes the need to provide our attendees with customized content to address the needs and requirements of this industry segment," said William "Bill" J. McCalpin, General Manager, Xplor International. "The government printing forum provides direct expertise and insight into the specific challenges faced by this market." James was nominated by President George W. Bush and confirmed by the U.S. Senate to be the 24th Public Printer of the United States in 2002. The GPO, a 1.5 million square-foot complex headquartered in Washington, DC, is the largest information processing, printing and distribution facility in the world and has regional offices in 20 cities throughout the country.
