Managing content for multiple channels is the key to a future of growth and profitability, according to IDEAlliance, which is co-locating its multi-faceted educational program on the show floor at PRINT 13, September 8-12, at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois. Among the highlights will be: the 2013 Spectrum Conference and the IDEAlliance Workflow Pavilion; which will hold an Integrated Media Workflow Lab; the Printing Standards Forum; the G7 Summit; New Technology Demos; and the IDEAlliance VIP Reception.
At PRINT 13, with co-located CPP EXPO, IDEAlliance will present best practices and critical technologies to effectively create, manage, and distribute content for multi-channel media production and distribution. “Growth for today’s print service providers requires a workflow that supports multiple channels and platforms,” said IDEAlliance Executive Vice President, Steve Bonoff. “The IDEAlliance Workflow Pavilion at PRINT 13 will offer expert presentations, interactive forums, and demonstrations of technologies and best practices required to meet the needs of today’s brand owners.”
“IDEAlliance has been at the forefront of information technology and publishing for decades,” said Graphic Arts Show Company (GASC) President Ralph Nappi. “We welcome the vast technical knowledge and skills their co-located program brings to PRINT 13.”
