The Inkjet Summit 2014 event will be held April 7-9, at the exclusive Ponte Vedra Inn & Club in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, and is organized by nGage Events, the leading producer of hosted model events, and publishing partner Printing Impressions, the leading trade publication serving commercial printers. The Inkjet Summit is an invitation-only, hosted event designed for senior managers and business executives who want to understand how inkjet technology trends, software, consumables and finishing solutions will impact their businesses and help them shape their strategies for the future.

“Canon Solutions America is proud to serve as the Keynote sponsor at the 2014 Inkjet Summit,” commented Mal Baboyian, President, Canon Solutions America. “The Inkjet Summit plays a vital role to help foster strategic partnerships which provide sound guidance to Print Service Providers looking to grow their businesses. As the worldwide inkjet market share leader and recipient of last year’s “Company to Watch” award, CSA looks forward to engaging in meaningful conversations with attendees so we can learn about the challenges in today’s marketplace. While at the same time offering guidance and support to help them develop sound business strategies which leverage emerging inkjet printing capabilities.”

“High-speed production print inkjet technology, both color and monochrome, is supporting businesses that are constantly looking for ways to enhance the intelligent use of variable data and customization to better serve their customers,” said Mike Herold, Director, Continuous Forms Inkjet Solutions. “Ricoh is eagerly looking forward to returning to the second annual Inkjet Summit as a keynote sponsor and discussing with print shops, mailers, and other customers the latest trends in inkjet technology, workflow, and services. We welcome the opportunity to continue the ongoing dialogue with last year’s participants, to start building relationships with new participants, and to leverage customer input to tune our future product plans to better meet customer requirements.”

The goal of the Inkjet Summit is to provide attendees with a focused conference program that covers the key topics needed to understand their options, challenges, economics, critical decision-making criteria, while providing valuable peer interaction and experiences. Along with that the Inkjet Summit provides access to key suppliers that each play a critical role in the make-up of a successful ink jet solution.

“IP’s specialized inkjet paper portfolio is designed to optimize pigment- and dye-based inkjet printing,” said Clay Ellis, International Paper Vice President of Printing Papers. “We are excited to be featured as a keynote speaker at this year’s Inkjet Summit and look forward to meeting with senior managers and business executives interested in our current and future strategies to improve their business. International Paper manufactures papers scientifically formulated for uncoated inkjet paper needs.”

Building on the success of Inkjet Summit 2013, the conference program will be driven by Marco Boer of IT Strategies. Marco is joined by an Advisory Board of production inkjet market leading experts. The Advisory Board has once again developed a conference program that provides the right mix of expert insights and analysis, user panels, and customer case studies.
