Seminars are priced independently and early registration fee range from £ 25.00 (including VAT) for students, £ 55.00 (including VAT) for Xplor members and £ 85.00 (including VAT) for non-members. Online registration will be available the week of August 28, 2006 at www.xploruk.org.uk. Onsite registration, after October 6, 2006, is also available at a slightly higher cost.
“Early response has been very positive with approximately 230 pre-registered individuals having already expressed interest in attending the seminars,” said Steve Petch, Chairman of the Xplor UK & Ireland Region. “We fully expect to meet our attendance goals at Digital Print 2006 in addition to providing a robust education program for the participants.”
As an international component of the Xplor Document University, an ongoing program of technical, executive and professional development programs announced earlier this month, Xplor's seminar series at Digital Print World is designed to provide attendees and the electronic document industry at large with education tools needed to excel in today's professional environment. Seminar topics include 1-to-1 marketing and integrated communications; transition from lithography to digital print, the changing world of digital printing and intelligent document tracking.
In addition to its annual Global Conference and participation at Digital Print World 2006, Xplor Document University offers educational programs to provide the industry with year round educational opportunities including webinars, global networking tools, university memberships, educational programming, online training, virtual technology councils as well as chapter and regional content.

The courses will be segmented by topic and geared towards variable data and transactional, as well as commercial printers and creative professionals.
