Press release from the issuing company
ARLINGTON, VA – (January 14, 2002) – Print Buyers Online.com, a free, educational e-community for print buyers, specifiers and designers, announced today that it is hosting the Print Oasis Print Buyers Conference on April 3-5, 2002 in Tysons Corner, VA. This conference debuts by showcasing technology and business solutions to help print buyers reduce costs, increase efficiencies and work more effectively with their print suppliers.
The three-day event will attract novice to seasoned print production professionals from advertising agencies, associations, publishing companies and corporations. Top-notch, dynamic speakers will show print buyers how to reduce costs and turnaround times while supporting peaceable and profitable relationships with their suppliers. Print buyers will network with industry peers, and discover best practices and lessons learned from seasoned buyers.
"No one grows up wanting to be a print buyer. Most learn print buying through trial by fire," commented Suzanne Morgan, President of Print Buyers Online.com. "There are very few opportunities for education of print buyers and ways to connect with other production professionals. As an independent party focused on the best interests of buyers, Print Buyers Online.com offers a highly focused conference with quality education and networking. PBO developed the Print Oasis conference in response to the overwhelming requests from our members. We believe this is the most beneficial event for this unique and important group of individuals. Printers will also benefit significantly from this, as a more educated customer is a more profitable customer."
The Print Oasis Conference will also feature more than 35 exhibitors including paper manufacturers, major technology firms, and printing companies. Exhibitors include Heidelberg USA, Xerox Corporation, and Kodak Polychrome Graphics. Exhibitors will unveil technology innovations as well as show buyers how to best adapt existing print solutions.
Conference fees are priced economically at $350 per person, which includes two-full days of seminars and print buyer panelist sessions, most meals, and the PBO Awards Party, which recognizes top print buyers, designers, and suppliers in the industry.
