Press release from the issuing company

Philadelphia, PA (February 28, 2006) -- INTERQUEST, a leading market and technology research and consulting firm serving the digital printing and publishing industry, and Book Business magazine, the leading trade publication for book printing and publishing as well as producer of BookTech Conference and Expo, today announced a partnership for the two organizations to provide an educational forum on trends and opportunities on digital book and manual production. The Digital Book Printing Forum will be held March 21, 2006, during the annual BookTech Conference and Expo at the Hilton New York in midtown Manhattan. "Digital printing provides an enormous but largely untapped opportunity for printers and publishers. We have followed recent developments in the book industry closely, and find plenty of enthusiasm for digital technology as well as evidence that things are changing, " said Gilles Biscos, president of INTERQUEST. "As one of the leading providers of research into emerging markets and applications, we are excited to be partnering with Book Business magazine to expose Book Tech attendees to the trends and opportunities digital printing opens up to their industry." Sponsored by a number of leading industry vendors, including Delphax, IBM Printing Systems, Hewlett Packard, Nipson, Lasermax Roll Systems and Xerox Corporation, the Digital Book Printing Forum will utilize a combination of recent INTERQUEST research, expert presentations, and success stories to provide the audience with an overview of the market, and insights into the challenges and opportunities confronting book printers and publishers. "The theme of this year's BookTech Conference is managing evolution in the industry, and what better way to prepare attendees for coming changes than to expose them to this important and exciting application of digital printing," noted Mark S. Hertzog, General Manager of the BookTech Conference & Expo. "We want to give attendees all the information and ammunition we possibly can, and we think the Digital Book Printing Forum will add an important dimension to their experience at BookTech this year." The Digital Book Printing Forum will take place on Tuesday, March 21 from 1:30 to 4:45 p.m. at the Hilton New York -- the same location as the BookTech Conference and Expo. The Forum Keynote will be followed by INTERQUEST presentations drawn from its recent research into digital book and manual printing, and an end-user panel of leading book printers in North America. Forum attendees are also invited to the BookTech Keynote at 9:00 a.m., and the BookTech Expo from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. For more information or to register, visit http://www.BookBusinessExpo.com.
