Event takes place May 17-20 in Orlando.
EskoArtwork (esko.com) will hold its first worldwide customer conference in 2009, in Orlando, May 17-20. While the company has held a series of user-group meetings in the United States, this event will be aimed at attracting attendees from the complete spectrum of EskoArtwork and Enfocus users worldwide: from graphics and structural-oriented packaging and graphic-arts companies (sign and display firms, converters, commercial printers, publishers), to packaging designers and brand owners. The program, says the company, is aimed at giving both hands-on demonstrations to users and decision-makers as well as "concentrating on the specific customer-supplier relationship." EskoArtwork's Enfocus division as well as EskoArtwork's partners will be participating in the conference.
"Especially since our acquisition of Artwork Systems, with the increased relevance of our combined product line to brand owners and sign and display manufacturers, the combined conference has proven to deliver more value to attendees than holding two separate conferences," says Carsten Knudsen, EskoArtwork CEO. "In addition, we are structuring this as a worldwide event with expected participants coming from all continents. In this global economy, we believe our users will gain significant benefit from being able to interact with other users from around the world in a single venue."
The conference will offer nine Program Tracks:
• Large-Format Printing and Finishing
• Structural Design
• Digital Flexo
• Color, Proofing, and Digital Printing
• Packaging Workflow Automation
• Graphic Design Tools for Packaging
• Commercial Printing
• Collaboration – WebCenter
Conference attendees will have the opportunity to interact with each other and with EskoArtwork and partner experts in both formal and informal settings. EskoArtwork is working closely with EskoArtwork Users Group International (EUGI, eugi.org) to organize the event and prepare relevant content. The 2009 conference will also include a partner exhibition area designed to provide attendees with ready access to information from EskoArtwork technical and service partners.
Registration fee: $595 ($495 before April 8, 2009).
