Lexington, Kentucky USA – WhatTheyThink.com today encouraged Print CEOs to register for its second annual Print CEO Forum scheduled for October 2nd and 3rd, 2010, in Chicago. This printer-only event is sponsored by manroland and is being held in the prestigious University Club. Limo transportation to McCormick Place for Graph Expo will be provided on October 3rd. Registration details can be found at http://printceoforum.com.

"In less than a month, many of us will be at Graph Expo to see what's new in the rapidly changing printing industry," said Cary Sherburne, Senior Editor and Director of Services for WhatTheyThink. "We are excited to be hosting the Print CEO Forum prior to the show to give print CEOs the opportunity to challenge their thinking, network with their peers and learn from the experts. The Print CEO Forum is more than a one-time event; we are building a community of Print CEO Forum alumni that will not only benefit from the annual event, but will also have the opportunity to participate in a range of activities and learning opportunities throughout the year."

As part of this community-building effort, WhatTheyThink plans a special web portal for CEO Forum alumni, as well as webinars, access to selected research materials and more. "These benefits will continue to provide print CEOs with innovative thinking, access to experts and a unique opportunity to network with peers on a regular basis," added Sherburne.

"The Print CEO Forum and its associated social media platform represent the type of additional value WhatTheyThink is committed to bringing to the industry," said Randy Davidson, President, WhatTheyThink. "This has been a challenging time for the industry and for many of its leaders. We are proud to be able to provide this resource to the industry as it continues facing dramatic change driven both by the economic situation and the changing nature of business communications."
