Hear Dr. Joe Webb's fresh look at printing & publishing business conditions

Press release from the issuing company

Lexington, Kentucky USA - WhatTheyThink.com today announced the opportunity for industry professionals to attend a free printing industry economic webinar with forecaster and commentator Dr. Joe Webb. The event will be held Wednesday, April 7th, from 2:00 to 3:00 pm EDT (-5 GMT).

No-charge registration is available at the webinar registration page.

During this one-hour event, Dr. Joe will provide a fresh look at business conditions for printers, designers and agencies, including the latest survey data in collaboration with CreativePro.com. It will provide insight into current economic conditions as the economy begins to show signs of recovery. Advance questions for the webinar Q&A session can be submitted by visiting WhatTheyThink's Economics & Research Center and selecting "Ask Dr. Joe."

"This will be an important session," said Randy Davidson, President, WhatTheyThink. "Dr. Webb will translate all of the latest data, provide an updated forecast, and arm industry executives with valuable information that will help them in strategic planning for the balance of 2010 and beyond."

"We have been keeping our readers informed of the progress-and problems-in the economic recovery,'" said Dr. Webb. "But we have also been cautious in explaining that the printing industry we see coming out of this recession is not the same one we saw going in. The multitude of changes requires innovative management-not business as usual. Tune in for this session. There will be lots to learn."

Specifically, he will discuss:
- Latest survey results reflecting current business conditions for printers, designers, agencies, in collaboration with CreativePro.com
- A fresh look at the economy and what it means for print and media
- Turmoil in mobile computing: iPads and Kindles, and the opportunities for print businesses
- …and our always fascinating Q&A and spring reading list

"This session will be available in the archive, along with all of our other educational sessions, so business owners and managers can revisit the content at any time," added Davidson. "In addition, by taking advantage of a unique economic advisory service for companies in the printing industry as well as financial analysts and others who follow the industry, companies can benefit from access to custom economic analyses that are specific to the client company and its target market segments, assisting them in better navigating these difficult economic times and creating forecasts for quarterly, annual, and long-term strategic planning."
