"At our second annual conference, we’ll continue to present best practices for print buyers," 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. Our first conference, held in April 2002, was a huge success in terms of attendance and attendee and exhibitor satisfaction. We believe this is the most beneficial event for this unique and important group of individuals. We plan to make the Print Oasis 2003 conference even better.
"Printers and print suppliers will also benefit significantly from participating in the conference. It’s an excellent opportunity to meet the decision-makers from companies that buy large volumes of print. Over 33% of Print Oasis 2002 attendees purchase over $2 million a year in printing. These buyers are in search of quality education, solution and resources."
Conference fees are priced economically at $399 per person (early-bird rate ends Dec. 31, 2002), which includes three days of educational seminars and print buyer panelist sessions, most meals, print production book, resource binder, and the PBO Awards Luncheon, which recognizes top print buyers, designers, and suppliers in the industry.
