Interviewer: Tell us why you came to DScoop?
Interviewee: Well, for networking opportunities. We’ve been the proud owner of an Indigo for two months now, so we have a whole lot to learn and I was looking forward to the networking opportunities.
Interviewee 2: We have over 1,700 people here at DScoop this year to participate in over 110 educational sessions over the course of about a three-day period. Not only do we have 1,700 people, but what’s maybe most significant about that number is that number makes up partners. We have over 80 partner companies here supporting DScoop from print technologies to data management to finishing to media partners. You name it; they are here to help support the event. And of course, HP is the premiere sponsor of DScoop.
Interviewee3: I hope to meet a lot of people that are much smarter than I am, and that shouldn’t be very difficult since we know nothing at all about this digital printing thing.
Interviewee4: I just finished a session that had representatives from Korea, China, Japan, Indonesia, and India all in one room talking about the opportunities in digital, what they need from a business development perspective and how DScoop can help them, not only today, but throughout the year in a worldwide effort.
Interviewee5: Right now, we’re at the HP Capture and about to learn a lot about the HP tools that are available to us to make our business a little bit better.
Interviewee6: We have customers here that want to do nothing more than to just learn, understand the opportunities in the new key vertical markets like publishing and photo, and to really understand the applications that are going to help drive them in 2010 and move ahead into 2011.
