Reston, VA – Graphic Arts Show Company today announced that the annual VUE/POINT Conference will be held at the Wyndham Palace in the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida, April 11-13, 2005, a major shift in location from the prior fourteen years, when the Conference was held in the Washington, DC area. VUE/POINT Conference, the graphic communications industry’s only fully-interactive peer-to-peer conference, will maintain the same discussion format, and include tabletop exhibits, evening roundtables, social events, and panel sessions during the three days it is held.
“VUE/POINT Conference is still the most effective way for graphic arts professionals to get accurate information and to benchmark their company’s success by learning from the experience of others. The move to Orlando should make the Conference more attractive to time-starved professionals in need of information who also have family obligations,” added Regis J. Delmontagne, President of GASC.
“The Wyndham is a terrific property, and we felt that the change in venue would be a benefit to VUE/POINT Conference attendees who had difficulty taking time away from family to attend the conference. The Resort caters to families, access to the area is easy from anywhere in the country, and attendees can meet their educational and family obligations at the same time,” noted Michael Vinocur, event manager for the Conference.
Topics for the 2005 Conference will be announced shortly, but in general, sessions will offer attendees a full-scope view of the graphic arts industry, including all aspects of digital prepress, digital and traditional printing, bindery and post press finishing, wide format inkjet, mailing and fulfillment services and more.
