June 27, 2007 Chicago, Illinois — Building on the momentum of the second annual conference held earlier this year, the Digital Solutions Cooperative (Dscoop) announces its third annual conference, set for Feb. 21–23, 2008, at the San Diego Marriot Hotel and Marina in San Diego, California.
Dscoop, a dynamic, user-driven community of HP Indigo press owners and their sales, marketing and production teams, is the world’s largest printing solutions provider cooperative, working to bring creative ideas to the market and help their members be more profitable.
The event is designed to further the success of second annual conference, which attracted more than 700 attendees — double the attendance of the inaugural event. Dscoop conference attendees have access to HP executives and Indigo product specialists, and gain insight about penetrating new market segments and demonstrating the business value of their digital capabilities. Past attendees give the conference consistently high marks; 98 percent rate their overall experience as good or excellent.
Lawrence Toet, vice president of client relations at Premier Printing Ltd., attended both of the previous conferences. “I found the willingness and desire for peer to peer sharing of conference attendees amazing,” he said. “It is not very often that you encounter such a sense of ‘being in this together’ amongst people working in the same industry. I will definitely be back again.”
“Our vision for the 2008 Dscoop Annual Conference is bigger and better!” said Jack Glacken, chairman of Dscoop and president of Today’s Graphics, Inc. “We are paying attention to member feedback from this year’s conference and working hard to surpass their highest expectations. We are thrilled to have the support of HP and the entire customer community.”
In 2008, the Dscoop Annual Conference is partnering with the nonprofit organization Corazón to build homes for two impoverished families. “Dscoop is all about community, said John Rogers, founder of Dots and Pixels Inc. “We’re a strong network striving to grow the digital print business, and this year, we’re taking that sense of community the next level.” A delegation of Dscoop conference attendees will travel to in Tijuana, Mexico, on Sunday, Feb. 25, to participate in Corazón’s “Build a House in a Day” program.
Details about the 2008 Annual Conference including the preliminary agenda, speaker highlights, registration and Corazón volunteering opportunities will be available soon at www.dscoop.org.
