TrendVision to Kick Off Graphics of the Americas 2004
Press release from the issuing company
May 15, 2003 -- Orlando, FL - The Printing Association of Florida announces TrendVision, a conference developed exclusively for graphic communications professionals that will digest and analyze emerging and converging business and technology trends in the graphics industry.
This ground breaking event is designed to focus on the convergence that is taking place among the major graphic communication industries, and will cover trends in print buying, print use, print practices, related commercial and corporate communication markets, and competitors. TrendVision will provide a unique learning experience, exposing conference attendees to “cutting edge” information from leading industry observers and thinkers.
TrendVision will take place in Miami Beach, Florida, Thursday and Friday, January 22 and 23, 2004 in conjunction with the Graphics of the Americas Exposition - one of the two largest graphic arts events held in the United States and the first industry trade show of the year. With 1,400 booths filled with innovative products and equipment, GOA 2004 is certain to help graphic communications professionals be more competitive and profitable. Free trade show admission is included with TrendVision registration.
“The INFORMATION AGE is being driven by the Digital Revolution and presents a multitude of opportunities as well as challenges and pitfalls. We have already seen the economic rise and fall of the dot-com economy, and the huge amount of money that has been lost as a result of a lack of valid and credible information and forecasting,” said Michael H. Streibig, PAF president.
TrendVision 2004 will bring together major research professionals and analysts who will examine the future role of our industry in the information and communications marketplace. “TrendVision will also provide a unique resource that will enable your organization or company to bring the blurring lines of industry convergence into focus and establish a new course and direction,” continued Streibig.
Following are some of the industry visionaries that will be with us in Miami Beach.
Vince Naselli and Richard Romano of TrendWatch Graphic Arts - “An analysis of significant trends as revealed through their proprietary research.”
Charlie Corr of CAP Ventures - “The new dynamics of Print Buying.”
Frank Romano from the Rochester Institute of Technology - “What does the future hold for the printing business?”
Robert H. Rosen, Industry Consultant - “Will new management trends be successful?”
(Additional speakers will be announced in the coming weeks.)
“This is a critical time for our economy and industry,” Streibig stated. “January 2004 in Miami Beach is the perfect time to plan ahead, examine new markets, hone your marketing skills and take advantage of the new direction of the Information Technology marketplace and the role that Print and Graphics will play in future successes.”
