Educational event for leaders of digital print shops, sign companies, and graphics screen printers.
The International Sign Association (ISA) has joined on as one of the sponsors of the Signage and Graphics Summit. Making its debut in January 2006 at the Westin Innisbrook Golf Resort in Tampa Bay, FL, the Summit will feature educational seminars developed for the leaders of large digital print shops, sign companies, and graphics screen printers.
"We are thrilled to be a part of this prestigious event, as it provides our members the opportunity to share industry knowledge and concerns," says Lori Anderson, ISA president.
The event's seminar program, developed by the editors of The Big Picture, Signs of the Times, and Screen Printing magazines, will focus on the most timely and pressing topics for signmaking, screen-printing, and digital-printing companies. Seminars will feature the technologies, business-management issues, and market-development opportunities that unite leading signage and graphics providers. The program will also feature roundtable discussions where attendees can discuss key issues and concerns with their peers "? choosing from more than 50 discussion topics.
To ensure the Summit delivers a valuable experience for attendees, the event also will feature an Advisory Council, comprising more than 30 leading providers of signage and graphics programs. Council members will provide feedback on seminar programming, moderate roundtable discussions at the conference, and act as a steering committee.
The ISA joins the Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA) as event sponsors, plus industry suppliers including Roland, Avery Graphics, Durst, Mutoh, Nazdar, Nur Macroprinters, Oce, Onyx, Oracal, Seiko, Vutek, Celtec, FujiFilm Sericol, MacDermid ColorSpan, Scanvec Amiable, and Sefar.
