Press release from the issuing company

SAN FRANCISCO AUGUST 30, 2005 Seybold Chicago, produced by MediaLive International, Inc., today announced that during the event, keynote speaker Jürgen Kurz, Quark Senior Vice President of Product Development, will make the first public demonstration of QuarkXPress 7, the company's first major upgrade of their flagship publishing product in two years. During his keynote presentation, "Transforming the Business of Creative Communications," on Monday, September 12 at 4PM, Kurz will publicly unveil some of the key features of QuarkXPress 7. After the keynote, The Seybold Report will informally poll attendees on their thoughts regarding the product and report findings in The Seybold Bulletin on September 13 at www.seyboldreports.com/Bulletin/about.html. Seybold Chicago will be held September 11-14, 2005 at the Hyatt Regency McCormick Center. "Adobe has be widely and incessantly covered by the graphic arts press, but we feel that Quark has an interesting story of its own to tell," said Cynthia Wood, Content Director of Seybold Seminars and The Seybold Report. "We invited Quark to address the controversy that lingers in some users' minds: Is QuarkXPress 7 worth the wait? And will there be reason to move back to QuarkXPress from InDesign once QuarkXPress 7 ships?" Co-located with PRINT 05 & CONVERTINGSM 05, Seybold Chicago will provide graphic communications and publishing professionals with unprecedented exposure to industry knowledge and information that is immediately applicable to real-world situations. The Seybold Chicago curriculum will focus on up-front metadata and JDF tools and project workflows, variable data publishing systems, and digital asset management with a focus on catalogs, direct marketing and packaging. Attendees at Seybold Chicago are digital publishing workflow professionals who face challenges while creating, managing, and distributing digital content for their organizations. Seybold Seminars is expanding its publishing industry influence in 2005 by producing a series of focused conference-only events that will be driven by advances in new technology and the evolving industry into workflow and content management. The Seybold event series will push the adoption of these technologies into the mainstream and show real world examples of enterprises that have succeeded and the challenges and returns they've encountered along the way.
