Real-Time Event Coverage Prepares for Graph Expo
Lexington, Kentucky USA -- May 13, 2002 -- WhatTheyThink.com, the leading online community serving the printing and graphic arts industry, today announced the availability of the ON DEMAND 2002 Library. This special section of their web site is based on content from their coverage of the ON DEMAND Printing and Publishing Strategy Conference and Exposition.
Nearly 19,000 professionals attended April’s ON DEMAND trade show. Its the worlds' largest event for digital solutions in printing and publishing. Under the banner “Real-Time Event Coverage”, WhatTheyThink.com published nearly 200 free articles including news, interviews and special reports.
“We wanted to create a reference point where industry professionals could research digital technologies and vendors,” said Randy Davidson, president of WhatTheyThink.com. “The goal of Real-Time Event Coverage is to offer content with a perspective that makes you wish you were there. This would not have been possible without the excellent writing from our columnists and the total cooperation of industry suppliers.”
Visitors to the ON DEMAND 2002 Library will see free reports on Canon, Creo, Danka, EFI, Exstream Software, Heidelberg, HP Indigo, IBM, Mohawk Paper, Nexpress, Oce, Scitex Digital Printing, Servador, Smartworks.com, T/R Systems, Xeikon, Xerox and many more. The library also includes articles on the state of variable and personalized printing.
“Based on site statistics, printers and print buyers are clearly interested in new digital technologies. The ON DEMAND 2002 Library offers a complete and unbiased review of the major players and market trends,” said Davidson.
Contributors to WhatTheyThink.com’s coverage included: Noel Ward, Molly Joss, Carole Alexander, Paul White, Alex Hamilton, Carro Ford, Rick Lamos, Jim Olsen, Vince Marini and CAP Ventures.
Sponsors played an essential role in allowing WhatTheyThink.com to create this free resource. Said Davidson. “Seven companies provided the financial means to make this possible. We would like to thank Xerox - our Premier Sponsor, Heidelberg, ePrint Advantage, IMI and Exstream Software. Special underwriting was also offered by Presstek and Printcafe Software.”
ON DEMAND follows Xplor 2001 and Print 01 as the third major industry event that WhatTheyThink.com has covered. The next Real-Time Event Coverage will take place later this year at Graph Expo.
