“Wide-format printing is poised to rebound to new heights,” says Steve Duccilli of US-based Wide-format Impressions in a preview of the invitation-only Wide-format Summit slated for July 25-27 at the PGA National Resort in Florida.
PRINTING United Alliance, the most comprehensive member-based printing and graphic arts association in the U.S., has released the first glimpse of the 2022 Wide-format Summit event program.
“The popular Wide-format Summit features insight from industry authorities who have widespread knowledge and expertise across multiple disciplines,” said the organisers. “The unique, invitation-only hosted format provides a valuable experience for attendees to acquire knowledge from the "who's who" in the wide-format space through keynote sessions, user panels, case studies, and segment-focused breakout sessions.
“Attendees will meet and learn from leading wide-format experts through a program developed by Steve Duccilli, VP of Wide-format Impressions, Denise M. Gustavson, editor-in-chief of Wide-format Impressions, and an advisory board representing some of the best minds in the wide-format market, proven thought leaders, and subject matter experts.”
Duccilli said: “It’s an interesting time in wide-format printing. Opportunities are plentiful as vertical market segments like trade shows and live events rebound from the pandemic. Yet, the pressures on maintaining supply lines, recruiting, and retaining workers, and operating at a sufficient profit margin have never been higher. We’ll be looking very closely at both sides of the recovery in our program – the reasons that wide-format printing is poised to rebound to new heights as well as the discipline and laser focus on efficiency that businesses will need to succeed.”
