Press release from the issuing company

Presentations provide a no-spin understanding of print automation software

Fairfax, Virginia - The annual SPIRE meeting commenced last week (Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, March 15–17) to bring together the top drivers in the industry to discuss automation and current capabilities in specialty imaging. This top-tier education spreads to every corner of the marketplace and adds to the strength of the entire printing community. 

This year’s program featured the Automation Vendor Panel Q&A Rapid Fire session, where attendees could ask critical questions directly to the leaders in the automation niche. “The interaction during the automation panel discussion was valuable for both SPIRE members and panelists,” said Michael Robertson, President, SGIA. “We really explored the challenges for graphics producers as well as those faced by software providers. There were important takeaways on both sides of the issue.”

Additional networking events and educational presentations filled the two-day event, including:

  • What Can Be Automated, Will Be Automated and Everything Can Be Automated: The Amazing Automation Journey and Corporate Mission of Firehouse 
    Terry Corman, CEO, Firehouse 
  • Demystifying Automation Software
    Darrian Young, Director Software and Development, Tucanna 
  • Automation Opportunity Categories
    Mike Ruff, Mike Ruff Consulting

SGIA would like to thank the 2015 SPIRE sponsors: Durst Image Technology, EFI, FLEXcon, FUJIFILM and Mimaki. To learn more about SPIRE membership, contact Mary Johnson at 703.359.1308.
