The Esko User Group International (EUGI) Board of Directors and Esko are pleased to announce that this year's EskoWorld 2012 for Esko customers in the Americas will be held in New Orleans, June 17-20, 2012, at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside, conveniently located in the heart of New Orleans on the banks of the Mississippi River and right next to the Riverwalk Marketplace.
EskoWorld will offer a total print experience: Packaging, labeling, commercial print, digital finishing, digital flexo, ArtiosCAD and color -something for everyone. There is no limit where the EskoWorld User Conference can take a customer - which is why Esko is adopting "No Limits" as its event slogan for 2012.
Last year's EskoWorld event drew a record 350 attendees, and Esko expects even more visitors this year. "We know that it is getting harder to travel to Düsseldorf for drupa, so Esko is bringing May's drupa to EskoWorld in June -- all of Esko's new products, all the most recent and greatest enhancements to existing products, and reports of all the latest printing trends," remarks Mark Quinlan, Esko Americas President. "As always, the user conference will provide invaluable information about Esko solutions to help print providers squeeze productivity from their print operations and explore new revenue-building opportunities. We particularly look forward to hosting a number of guests from Latin America. A special feature this year is that more than 20 sessions will be presented in Spanish."
EskoWorld Mission: Share Ideas and Knowledge
EskoWorld brings together customers, industry partners, product specialists and support staff, encouraging the exchange of ideas and product and application knowledge. A large number of Esko support staff is on-hand for conference program presentations and demonstrations, as well as to listen to customer input and to provide feedback.
"EskoWorld is one of the most important events on our calendar, and the organization of EskoWorld and preparation of relevant content is always a collaborative process between Esko and the EUGI leadership. This year is particularly special, because EskoWorld falls right after our presence at drupa. It will offer a unique view into industry outlooks, new product presentations and roadmaps, and workshops for anyone with an interest in packaging, displays, and printing. Users participate in training sessions, roundtable discussions, seminars and hands-on labs, designed for novice, and journeyman, as well as advanced users -- providing them with information to add even more value to their Esko solutions," explains Simon James, Esko Vice President Marketing. "Esko also receives a wonderful opportunity to learn more about our customers' evolving needs while, concurrently, getting feedback from them on our development plans. Their views about our technology, service and support provide critical input for future product and business planning."
Exceptional Networking Event with Esko Industry Partners
As in past years, Esko plans to have a variety of supply chain partners participating in the centrally located Partner Pavilion. Last year sixteen companies offered assistance in various areas of print technology. EskoWorld attendees make it a point to visit the Pavilion and view solutions from a wide range of vendors. The dedicated exhibition allows attendees to get easy access to demos and helpful information.
