CHESTNUT HILL, MA -- February 7, 2007 -- Boston Print Buyers (BPB) announced that its March dinner program will center on a first-ever printer panel. The three-person "Meet the Press!" panel, moderated by BPB founder Margie Dana, will tackle critical questions about the changing face of printing for an audience of buyers only. This one-of-kind event will take place from 6:00 to 8:30 pm on Wednesday, March 21, 2007, at the Millennium Bostonian Hotel in Boston, MA.

Three printers from New England will comprise the panel. They are Gina Deschamps, Sales & Marketing Manager for Deschamps Printing in Salem, MA; Ken Michaud, Co-Owner, Chairman and CEO of the George H. Dean Company in Braintree, MA; and Kim Taylor, Principal of the Hanson Printing Company in Brockton, MA. The three privately owned commercial printing firms are co-sponsoring the event.
Insights & Inner Workings of Successful Printing Firms
"This printer panel was designed to shed light on the inner workings of three successful printing firms in New England," said BPB's Dana. "I've produced many buyer panels in the past, so I thought it's time for a panel of printers to take the stage. What a benefit to buyers, as they get to ask questions and gain insights from today's printers."
This panel of printers will take on such issues as:
- How are today's printers affected by industry consolidations?
- What will their equipment list look like in 5 years, or even 10?
- How are printers embracing new technology and new media?
- How would printers describe their "ideal" customer?
When buyers register for this event, they are invited to pose a question for the panel. In addition, Margie Dana will be compiling her own questions. Panelists will see questions in advance, but on-site questions will be encouraged.
Dinner will be served, and a fun-filled Trivia Contest with prizes will take place after the discussion.
