eProductivity Software (ePS), has announced exciting changes to the largest user conference in print and packaging—its CONNECT User Conference and Industry Event. In addition to a new format, date, and venue, the event will once again host an impressive lineup of sponsors and exhibitors.


This year, the company is providing the experience in an “all-inclusive” package in a new venue and date. The change comes in response to feedback from attendees looking to simplify their experience and have the event fall outside of the busy season of closing books on the previous year.

CONNECT 2024 has an impressive sponsor lineup of industry hardware providers, including HP, Ricoh, Konica Minolta, and EFI, and leading software and technology providers including ECO3 (Apogee), Esko, and ISCorp. The full lineup of CONNECT 2024 sponsors and exhibitors will be announced in the coming weeks.

“The tight integration between HP Indigo digital presses and ePS Pace and ePS Radius are primary examples of HP’s intelligent automation strategy, eliminating touchpoints and increasing production efficiency for our joint customers worldwide. We look forward to attending CONNECT 2024 and meeting with customers from the print and packaging industries,” says Fernando Alperowich, HP GM Industrial Print Americas.

"Being part of ePS CONNECT 2024 shows the level of our commitment to the ePS/ECO3 partnership," says Andy Grant, Head of Software at ECO3. “Participation at this unique event that showcases software solutions for the print industry, enables real engagement in discussions on how integrating software can deliver added value. And that’sjustone of the highlights we will showcase: The added value of the ePS – ECO3 integrated workflow.” 

In addition to the robust learning tracks for print and packaging users, CONNECT 2024 is offering an exclusive two-and-a-half-day track with Chief Architect Dennis Kremer where users will gain advanced hands-on training sessions on ePS enabling technologies designed to help customers streamline their broader ecosystem and boost the value of their current investments. This must-attend training session for print and packaging IT professionals will cover technologies already embedded in ePS solutions (e.g., ePS Productivity Workbench) and newer technologies (e.g., ePS Automator).

CONNECT 2024 will also host a Women’s Networking Lunch (WNL), building upon the success of last year’s inaugural event. The aim of the WNL is to bring together women within the industry to share inspiration and ideas on how we can continue to attract and retain female talent. This year’s panel includes Jules Van Sant, Executive Director of Two Sides North America, Vice Chair of Print & Graphics Scholarship Foundation, Chair of Cal Poly Graphic Communication, and Partner at Bubble & Hatch, and Lindsey Pearson, Managing Director of Whitmar Publications, which includes the publications Digital Printer, FlexoTech, and Digital Labels & Packaging will also join the panel.
