Press release from the issuing company

Attendance up 46% as company introduces Avanti Slingshot educational sessions

TORONTO – Avanti Computer Systems Limited, a leading provider of Print MIS solutions, announced attendance numbers for its 23rdAnnual User Group Conference were up 46%, the highest in the company’s history. 

Attendees enjoyed the splendor of Niagara Falls while attending sessions geared towards all levels – from “Newbie” to Expert – of both the Avanti Classic platform, as well as Avanti Slingshot, introduced in 2013 and recent winner of two MUST SEE’EM awards at this year’s Graph Expo.

“This year’s conference surpassed all of our goals and expectations”, stated Patrick Bolan, president and CEO, Avanti. “Our ‘first-timers’, who made up nearly half of our attendees, were quickly made to feel a welcome member of the Avanti family.”

“Thank you for making this a great first user conference experience for me,” shared Jayne Demerchant, VP of Export and Business Development, Taylor Printing Group. “I have learned so much in a week and look forward to taking this knowledge back with me. I was a sponge learning as much as I could, not only from the Avanti team but also the users and their experiences. The networking was incredible.”

Sponsors of the event included Ricoh, the Conference’s gold sponsor, as well as Xerox, Marcom Central, Soft Solutions, NexTec, Graphic Arts Magazine, and ProShip. Sponsors attending the Avanti User Group Conference embraced the opportunity to learn and share ideas with today’s commercial and in-plant leaders across North America, all in one place.

Back by popular demand was the “Ask the Experts” room, where customers could spend one-on-one time with Avanti Classic and/or Avanti Slingshot staff, for valuable advice and ideas to maximize ROI of their Avanti print MIS platform.

“I spent quality one-on-one time with Michelle in the ‘Ask the Experts’ room during the first two days of the conference”, declared Joe Farage, President, Buffalo Printing Co. “All my questions were answered. That alone was well worth the price of admission.”

Attendees were treated to a spectacular, one-of-a-kind experience at Avanti’s social event, which took place in picturesque Niagara-on-the-Lake. The group was treated to a tour of Ravine Vineyard, including dinner and wine pairing. The evening was capped off with a bonfire and homemade ‘smores.

Avanti hosted its annual User Group conference October 6 - 9 in Niagara Falls, Ontario offering concurrent sessions for both its Avanti Classic and Avanti Slingshot customers.
