Press release from the issuing company
More than 2,000 digital print professionals gathered at Dscoop7, the 2012 Dscoop Annual Conference that ran March 22-24 at the Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center in Washington, D.C. This turnout marked a 30 percent increase in core North American attendees from last year’s event and included attendees from 38 countries around the world. In addition, 95 Partners participated in the Solutions Showcase exhibition.
"Dscoop7 was a success in every sense of the word,” said Craig Curran, Dscoop7 chairman and vice president of sales at Nosco. “Our attendees heard exciting pre-drupa announcements from HP and Partners and received top-notch education from experts such as Sally Hogshead, Chad Dick and Josh Linkner. The ability to connect with each other is a unique benefit that only Dscoop offers.”
In addition to the more than 150 educational sessions throughout the three-day event, the organization also launched the Marketing to Win Toolkit. The idea for the toolkit grew from the member base, which expressed the need for education and turnkey tools to help them market their business.
Additional highlights from Dscoop7 included:
“Dscoop conferences continue to be an extremely valuable nexus between HP and our customers,” said Jan Riecher, vice president and general manager of the Americas Graphic Solutions Business in HP’s Printing and Personal Systems Group. “Most of the innovations HP introduced this month resulted from feedback from the Dscoop organization and from our customer advisory councils worldwide. This user community is an amazingly influential dynamic in the market and a driving force that is helping to shape the future of the graphic arts industry.”
“It is important to continue to find inspiration and find new ways to see and think,” said Marilee Clark, general manager of C2 Imaging Headquarters. “The Dscoop conference gives you a new perspective. Instead of trying to find your way out of the maze of your job role, you start to look at the entire setting to see that there are multiple ways to get to where you and your company want to go.”
"Dscoop7 has once again raised the bar,” said Eric Hawkinson, Dscoop global executive director. “The excitement around drupa and the global expansion of Dscoop has been undeniable. We see great things for the future of the print industry because all of our members are working together to become more successful.”
Conference proceedings will be available on the website for Dscoop members to access starting next week.
Dscoop8 will be held Feb. 14-16, 2013, at the Gaylord Texan Hotel and Convention Center in Dallas, Texas.
