Graphics of the America Announces Call for Speakers

Press release from the issuing company

Miami Beach, FL -- Here's your chance to showcase your expertise to graphic communications professionals from around the globe. PAF President George Ryan announces the Graphics of the Americas 2010 call for speakers to participate in the 35th annual expo and conference. The event will be held February 25-27, 2010 at the Miami Beach Convention Center. Last year's expo and conference attracted 9,500 attendees from 70 countries. More than 1,200 attendees participated in the diverse educational sessions.

GOA's conferences address key issues and technologies impacting the design, print and publishing markets, particularly in the Americas and with relevance to the global marketplace. This year GOA is once again expanding its conference offerings to include tracks on production, prepress, variable data printing, design management, sales and marketing, color management and wide format printing, in addition to the growing Brand Protection Conference that addresses innovations in security printing and how brand owners can thwart counterfeiting.
Intriguing, Unique Submissions Requested
Do you offer intriguing and unique, industry-relevant material? Do you have innovations, success stories or case studies that you'd like to share with your peers? Are you a designer, brand owner, print buyer, prepress specialist, printer, marketer or business strategist who has insight to offer attendees? Can you offer comprehensive technical training to attendees who want to learn new strategies and best practices to reach out to emerging markets, cultivate new prospects, and deepen relationships with current customers?
We're looking for people who can offer creative topics relevant to the state of the industry using limited resources, due to the state of the economy, and the changing focus of graphic communications. Proposals may be inspirational, practical, or both; but should derive from the speaker's first-hand knowledge and experience. All proposals are subject to review and are selected based on relevance. Presentations of a commercial nature, or promoting a particular product or platform, are discouraged.
Submissions Due by July 31
If you have a suggestion for a speaker or topic, GOA invites you to send your submission in writing by July 31, 2009. Your submission should include the suggested title, a 50-word description, a list of targeted attendees and 3-5 sentences on what they will learn, as well as a short biography of the speaker. Please also provide contact info: Name, title, company, phone, and email with your submission. Email submissions to Kathryn Stuart, PAF Director of Education, Events and Programs, at [email protected].
