Vanderbilt University Printing Services continues to thrive by combining a well-established, bustling offset operation with burgeoning business opportunities and digital solutions to meet and exceed customer demand.
More than 2,000 enthusiastic HP users packed the auditorium at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel and Convention Center in Nashville last month for the opening of the eighth annual Dscoop conference, a gathering of graphic arts business owners and technical professionals who use HP equipment. The three-day meeting included scores of educational sessions geared toward HP users, as well as an exhibit area with nearly 100 partners showing equipment and software designed to work with HP equipment.
For years I've been hearing about the Dscoop conference, an annual meeting of HP users. In-plants with HP Indigo presses have praised Dscoop's relevant sessions, its impressive vendor show and the opportunity it provides to swap ideas with fellow HP users. Last month I finally got a chance to attend the conference, held at Nashville's Gaylord Opryland Hotel and Convention Center (not my favorite place; more on that in a minute).
Last month, about 30 in-plant managers from universities all over the southern U.S. got together in Nashville for the 36th annual Southeastern University Printing and Digital Managers Conference (SUPDMC). A new IPG video offers a close-up view of the event, showing the attendees, vendors and presentations.
When SUPDMC attendees weren't networking or attending sessions, they were visiting Vanderbilt University's impressive in-plant.
For years, Southern in-plant managers have been inviting me to the Southeastern University Printing and Digital Managers Conference (SUPDMC). As the name implies, this is a group of in-plant managers who hail mostly from Southern states.
