Executive Communication Exchange to provide label printers essential insights into how to grow their business in today's dynamic market

Itasca, IL, – Xeikon America Inc., an innovator in digital color printing technology, today announced its sponsorship of the Executive Communication Exchange on August 16, at the Hilton Indian Lakes Resort in Bloomingdale, IL. Designed for professionals in the label printing industry, the event will provide unique insight into the expanding opportunities in this market and best practices for using technology to grow their revenue.

This is the fourth Executive Communication Exchange this year. It will provide owners and executives of label printing companies direct interaction with industry experts, thought leaders and their peers. There is no charge for label printers to participate.

According to Michael V. Ring, president of Xeikon America, Inc., "These forums are meant to provide educational and informational tools to label converters. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn and discuss critical success factors, such as the current brand owner requirements from label printers and business strategies that offer the greatest promise in today's market."

Three industry leaders will share their perspectives at the event:

  • Jack Kenny, editor of Label & Narrow Web magazine, will present his perspective on the state of the industry, and is the event's moderator;
  • Bob Leahey, associate director at InfoTrends, a leading market research and strategic consulting firm for the digital imaging industry, will share trends from a soon-to-be-released 2011 study on the needs of brand owners;
  • Jay Ziegler, director of Sales & Marketing at Tapecon, Inc., a Buffalo, N.Y.-based full service manufacturer of pressure-sensitive labels, decals, membrane switches, and custom fabrication, will talk about his company's experiences in implementing digital technology and operating it in a hybrid environment.
  • One participant at the event, determined by random drawing, will receive a "Commercialization Assessment Report-tm (CAR) for the Narrow Web Label Printer/Converter" as well as a personal consultation from Karstedt Partners, LLC, to evaluate the potential of digital label printing for their business.

Label printers and converters interested in attending the event should contact Larry Vogel at 585-271-4655, or larry@analystadvisors.com.
