You, yes YOU. What have you done for yourself lately? Specifically in the print education department?
If you are still thinking about that question, I can almost guarantee you are not doing enough to keep the focus on the future of print and your business.
KNOWLEDGE is what separates you from the pack. Sharing it with customers keeps them coming back. Providing an educational experience, that goes into the priceless column.
In a few weeks, the PRINT 18 show floor will be filled with the opportunity to learn about products and services that are driving the industry forward. APTech has beefed up their Learning Experience and Marketer and Publisher Seth Godin will kick off the show with a keynote aimed to help attendees shape their professional future.
Where will you be Sept 30 – Oct 2?
It’s time to take a field trip if staring at your calendar revealed more of the same old stuff you have been doing all year on those dates. Register with code PMCPRINT18 for a free pass.
After you have walked the floor and taken in the awesomness that print technology can achieve, set your coordinates for booth 3823 and join us in The Printerverse at PRINT 18 where 22 members of the Intergalactic Alliance will gather to provide 3 days of FREE education and catered events to help attendees achieve and maintain print business success.
The Printerverse will celebrate our 7th Annual Girls Who Print Day on Oct 2 with a brand new, all-female Industry Panel. We’ll serve up some free food and drinks, crown the 2018 Girlie Award winner at noon and present our Women in Leadership Panel right after. Lunch and all Girls Who Print Day activities at PRINT 18 are made possible through the generous support of HP, Canon Solutions America, DirectMail 2.0 and Ricoh. Stop by the Printerverse for a Girls Who Print button courtesy of our good friends at Domtar Paper. They always send us a big box… but grab one quickly any day of the show. They go fast!
And, you can see it all whether you are at the show or not! We broadcast all of our panels and events LIVE, and recordings will be available on-demand after the panels and events end.
With the help of Morten Reitoft and his crew from Inkish.TV, our at-home viewing experience will be out-of-this-world and accessible from YouTube and Facebook this year, opening up ways to share live events or recording with your connections…. And customers.
Let’s get back to that as I wrap this post up.
If you can’t bring customers to PRINT 18, invite them over for a Printerverse Watch Party. Choose panel and event topics of relevance to you and them, order some pizza and viola’ an instant Lunch and Learn. Invite students and give them a tour of your print shop as a bonus. Take advantage of the industry experts who share their time and knowledge, and provide some Printspiration to your company as well. Pizza makes print shops happy, too… and watching the Printerverse programming may just make them smarter.
Learn Long and Prosper!
