xpedx has expanded its schedule of Wide Format Solutions Summits to 28 shows in 14 new cities in 2013 after having success with the summits in five locations last year. Each event is designed to help print shops learn how wide-format technology can increase sales, see live product demonstrations, and understand how to integrate wide-format printing into their current operations.

“Wide format printing is a growing segment in our industry,” said Dennis Killion, xpedx director, marketing-graphics. “xpedx summits are an opportunity to work with printers to provide the tools for their success in wide-format printing. The Solutions Summits are more than just an introduction to the wide-format segment. They are opportunities that provide attendees with a vision of where their business can go and how they can get there.”
