Printing Industries Alliance, today announced that their DIGITAL PRINT THINK TANK II on July 26th, 2017 has a growing list of presentation sponsors including  Canon, Heidelberg, Xerox, HP and Konica Minolta. Prime presentation slots are still available. Call or email Marty Maloney at 203 912 0804 or m.maloney@pialliance.org

The event will take place at Club 101, located at 101 Park Avenue, NY, NY at 40th Street.  Mark Michelson, our event’s lead moderator will be joined by expert panelists, speakers and presenters. Over 100 printers will hear the latest updates and options for all areas of digital printing including toner, inkjet production, label & packaging and wide format. A digital experience printers panel will feature top management from printers large and small; including Mike Graff, CEO of Sandy Alexander and Cheryl Kahanek, President, President Marketing Solutions Group, Earth Color.

Marty Maloney, Executive Vice President, Printing Industries Alliance stated “it has been over a year since are first Think Tank and Printers are requesting an update. They like our format which allows them to make side-by-side comparisons and find out which press should be their next digital purchase.

In addition for the first time, we are inviting all members of the industry trade press to attend as our guests.  It is common for some presenters to have press announcements one to two months prior to a major tradeshow such as PRINT 17 which starts on September 10th. Editors will have the opportunity to write digital printing updates prior to the show”.

A new tier of sponsorship is also being added to the event.  This new tier will be a non-presentation sponsorship that will give supporting vendors a reserved table for five persons, an in-room small perimeter table to sell as well as display literature and an opportunity to speak on a panel. Complete details of both sponsorships are found below.

 The event will cut across all digital printing technologies from the simplest to ink jet production and all applications will be discussed including direct mail, books, labels & packaging and wide format. The presentations will be interspersed by discussion panels that will include a panel of digital printers and also a panel of digital press manufacturers as well as a panel of suppliers that support digital printing.

Presentation sponsors will typically be press manufacturers and non-presentation sponsors will be paper, finishing, software, color and others supporting the digital print industry.
