PRINT 18 is huge and IPMA will be there!
Chicago and PRINT 18 are calling! This event is big!!! With over 80 education sessions to choose from and a huge vendor exhibition, you’ll want to be there to learn and to see the latest for your in-plant. And you’ll have an outstanding opportunity to network, share ideas, find solutions for problems in ways you never thought about, and formulate your strategy for the future.
IPMA will be there for you with the In-Plant Place booth #3449 and is hosting In-Plant specific events. Drop by and see Executive Director Mike Loyd and the IPMA staff. We’re looking forward to seeing you!
We’ll start your conference with IPMA’s special session “State of the Industry- Growing and Securing the In-Plant” Sunday, September 30, 2018 at 2:00 pm in McCormick Place South Room S101ab. Sponsored by Canon, Angela Whiteside of Kickstage Consulting will be presenting IPMA’s 2018 Research White paper and offering some key managerial insights into how to combat the threat of outsourcing and how to seamlessly align the strategic trajectory of In-Plant organizations with those of their parent companies for mutual growth, profitability, and partnership. She’ll share how data collected from Member and Partner surveys was used to come to the conclusions and recommendations of the paper and will share the results. All attendees will receive a copy of the report.
And on Monday, you definitely want to attend the IPMA Luncheon 12:00 pm-1:30 pm in McCormick Place South, Room S105abc. Sponsored by Xerox, Ricoh, RSA, and Konica Minolta, you’ll learn how to “Be a Front Runner” from a panel of in-plant leaders from all verticals. Described as most likely to “win the race,” as leading other competition, and operating bestwhen in the “front of the field,” hear how these leaders are poising their operations to win, are performing better than their competition and what they are doing to showcase their wins internally and externally, so they are viewed as front-runners. Our moderator is Elisha Kasinskas of Rochester Software Associates. There is no cost to in-plant personnel to attend the luncheon; however, space is limited and pre-registration is required.
End your busy Monday of education, working the show floor, and learning about the latest equipment with us at our booth for a Happy Hour and Reception from 3:00 pm -5:00 pm. Wind down, network with other in-plant conference goers, and enjoy a cool beverage at our booth. Plus you’ll have the opportunity for facetime with our Konica Minolta sponsors in a relaxed environment! Bring friends, new contacts, and other in-plant personnel to join in. We are the In-Plant Place for in-plants only!
