Press release from the issuing company
VALHALLA, N.Y. (May 19, 2005) – Proofing continues to be a “hot” topic at most events, conferences and seminars in the graphic communications industry today and that was definitely the case when Enovation Graphic Systems, Inc. held its annual Customer Alliance Summit in late January.
Enovation brought together representatives from more than 20 companies and organizations, including printers, publishers, advertising agencies and design firms, to discuss the challenges and issues facing them today and in the future.
“It was wonderful to sit down in a non-competitive atmosphere and brainstorm about our industry and the issues we are all dealing with,” commented Gina Sigmon, director of technical sales for Quebecor World. “It was a good opportunity to discuss with vendors ours needs and expectations relating to their products and future strategy. It was also rewarding to get feedback from our customers during this summit.”
Enovation's Customer Alliance Summit is unique in the graphic arts community and is an opportunity for the attendees to talk with their peers, suppliers and vendors – all at one time and all in one place.
“We've always placed high priority on our Customer Alliance Summit,” notes Tim Combs, senior vice president, sales and marketing, for Enovation. “It's an opportunity for all of us to come together to discuss the challenges and trends in our businesses and it's an opportunity to see where the industry is headed.”
Participants discussed the future of proofing, including the projected role of remote and monitor-based technologies, as well as color management issues and techniques and the important roles of standards organizations.
“I was impressed with the event,” remarked Kevin Brucato, director of Lowe/Studio PSD in New York. “The moderators did an incredible job of covering the key day-to-day issues that we are all facing. As for the attendee list, I could not have picked a better group. The summit provided a conduit for getting to know many of our associates in the industry. It's the best industry conference I've ever attended.”
