Chicago, Ill. – Executive members from the Print Services and Distribution Association (PSDA) joined industry leaders March 5-7 in Scottsdale, Arizona at The Scott Resort & Spa to get the connections and ideas that will drive industry growth in 2018. The CEO Summit brought together more than 150 C-suite professionals – a record-breaking attendance number that underscores PSDA’s leadership in shaping the future of the print services and distribution industry at a time of shifting market demands and consolidation.
This year’s event also solidified the PSDA CEO Summit as the best event for industry leaders to make meaningful connections and drive business growth. Eighteen of the top 25 PSDA member distributors were in attendance, representing nearly a billion dollars in revenue. Among the attendees were leaders of some of the most forward-thinking manufacturers and distributors.
Attendees also took in industry-leading education, including a keynote from marketing expert David Avrin, who taught attendees how to truly differentiate their businesses in the marketplace. Bestselling author Eric Chester shared how attendees can ignite passion in their employees without burning them out. Other presentations focused on such topics as merger, acquisition and divestiture strategies; the evolving sale role; and industry growth trends and opportunities.
The event drew a record number of attendees who look to PSDA to provide the education and networking opportunities they need to get ahead in a shifting marketplace.
“Our industry is constantly changing and evolving, and that creates a level of uncertainty to industry leaders. PSDA has been on the forefront of creating opportunities for members and industry leaders to share their challenges, ideas and best practices, which makes us all stronger,” said Stuart Boyar, PSDA Board president. “Getting together to collaborate at PSDA CEO Summit gives our members’ companies an edge but also benefits our industry and customers.”
PSDA’s next CEO Summit will be held March 11-13, 2019, at the W Fort Lauderdale in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
