Buyers' Panel Announced for 2008 Signage and Graphics Summit
Event session to feature Wal-Mart, Coors, and AT&T/Cingular.
The 2008 edition of the Signage and Graphics Summit (SGS) will feature three pre-eminent companies on its SGS Buyers' Panel: AT&T/Cingular, Coors and Wal-Mart. The SGS Buyers’ Panel is one of the most popular sessions at SGS, and will feature an open discussion between attendees and a select group of high-volume signage and graphics buyers.
Now in its third year, SGS--presented by the publishers of The Big Picture, Screen Printing, and Signs of the Times magazine--brings together top-tier executives from three different industries: high-volume sign, digital-printing and screen-printing for a high-level idea exchange. Topics of discussion generally include common challenges, best business practices and growth opportunities. The event will be held January 16-18 at the PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach, Florida.
"We are very excited this year, as we are every year, about the caliber of panelists," says Steve Duccilli, publisher of Screen Printing and The Big Picture magazines. "The Buyers’ Panel is one-of-a-kind because it gives signage and graphics producers a chance to learn what issues are really driving the decisions that key accounts are making. The panel features top buyers from several distinct market segments, so it covers a lot of ground and gives the attendees’ perspective that might take months of sales calls to glean. And with AT&T/Cingular, Coors, and Wal-Mart on the panel, you know it’s going to be a fascinating discussion. Beyond being three of the most recognized names in corporate America, each has done some very compelling things with their signage and graphics program over the past year," says Duccilli.
In addition to the Buyers’ Panel, SGS offers a variety of other educational seminars featuring speakers and thought-provoking roundtable discussions, plus various networking and social events. Other session titles on the agenda include:
* New Opportunities in Vehicle Graphics;
* Improving Your Bottom Line Through Shop Layout and Workflow;
* Flatbed UV Printers: What's New, What's Next, What Matters;
