Press release from the issuing company
LOS ANGELES--Sept. 24, 2001--Key3Media Group, Inc. today announced its Seybold Seminars east coast Conference will take place February 19-22, 2002 at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York, New York. Seybold Seminars is targeted at the commercial and corporate publishing, design and marketing industries, and the return to New York City after three years in Boston, signals a commitment to the core audiences that make up the Seybold marketplace.
"Our exhibitors and our customers come together to compare and contrast products, services and standards in the graphic arts, publishing and marketing fields,'' said Gene Gable, president of Seybold Seminars and Publications. "We can think of no better place to build a marketplace than New York City, which is the capital of business and professional communications.''
The decision to move Seybold Seminars back to New York was made prior to the events of September 11, 2001. "The recent tragedies in New York only firm our commitment to the City of New York and the business and commerce our marketplace can bring there,'' said Gable. "We look forward to working with the City, the hotel community and the numerous businesses that depend on trade events for their vitality.''
SeyboldNY 2002 will be a high-level conference for graphic and publishing industry professionals, designed to provide not only insights into where the design and publishing industries are headed, but also practical information on how to use publishing technology for the best financial return.
The four-day program will focus on those segments of the publishing industry that are centered in New York, including advertising, financial, magazine and book publishing.
SeyboldNY 2002 will mark the debut of a new Seybold Seminars conference, PDF (portable document format) for Electronic Publishing, designed to be the world's largest PDF conference.
At the center of the event is the Seybold Summit, a one-day conference focused on the technologies that are changing the face of publishing, including cross-media authoring tools, digital rights management systems and personalized publishing techniques. Also featured are Seybold Hot Technology Days, focused on a specific technology that is changing the graphic arts and publishing field.
As with all Seybold Seminars, SeyboldNY 2002 will include a host of Seybold tutorials, and half-day programs from world-class instructors that show attendees how to put technology into action.
"We are very excited to be coming back to New York,'' said Gable. "It's where our customers are, it's where business takes place, and it's where the world turns when looking for new commerce models in publishing.''
