NAPL Chief Economist To Define State Of The Industry At CUA 2003

Press release from the issuing company

VANCOUVER, B.C., CANADA -- April 15, 2003 -- What is the future of the print industry? "The recession has run deeper for us than it has for the economy as a whole," says Andrew Paparozzi, Vice President and Chief Economist of the National Association for Printing Leadership (NAPL). "Recovery will come in small steps. Print managers must plan for renewed growth by diversifying, translating technological advances into improved productivity, and redefining their businesses more broadly." Paparozzi spearheads the Association's comprehensive annual NAPL State of the Industry Report, and given current conditions, his economic forecasts are in high demand. The CUA conference will address many of the obstacles to growth cited in Paparozzi's State of the Industry Report, including strategic differentiation; marketing strategies; and finding effective methods for growth in tough economic times. It is a great opportunity to hear how CEOs, owners and managers of high-performance companies drive profitability. Additional speakers include CUA president Rich Dunklee, Director of eBusiness Solutions of HBP, Inc., who will present an update on the recent activities of the association; and Amos Michelson, CEO of Creo. Michelson will address critical issues such as how Creo interprets the current state of the industry, and where new business opportunities lie. The CUA is an independent network of users of Creo systems worldwide. All products manufactured by Creo are represented by the association, which promotes effective communication between users, Creo developers and company leadership.
