PRIMIR, the Print Industries Market Information and Research Organization, has announced the lineup for its Summer Meeting, slated for June 20-22, 2012 at the Hilton Hotel & Executive Meeting Center in Rockville, Maryland.
The program features several sessions related to key findings from two soon-to-be-released PRIMIR research studies: "Evaluating and Understanding Non-Print Revenues of N.A. Printing Companies," and "Packaging: Evaluation of Vertical Markets & Key Applications." Following the study presentations, PRIMIR members will examine the findings of each study and discuss how they might address the changes, challenges and opportunities identified in each report.
PRIMIR members will also hear from a panel of local D.C. area printers about their execution of non-print services offered to clients to augment their print operations. Attendees will also explore a local 'case study' success story as they tour nearby marketing/print service provider EU Services, where they will learn first-hand about the firm's successful implementation of non-print services.
The PRIMIR Summer Meeting will also feature a "State of the Printing Industry" review from Joseph Truncale, Ph.D., President & CEO of NAPL.
Finally, Ralph Nappi, President of NPES will provide an overview of key announcements made in May at drupa 2012 in Dusseldorf, Germany. Mr. Nappi's overview will be followed by a panel discussion among several PRIMIR members who exhibited at the international show.
PRIMIR 2012 Summer Meeting attendees will also participate in various task forces focused on research to be completed in 2012 and beyond.
PRIMIR hosts several meetings each year, providing a forum for members to network among their peers while learning the results of the latest research produced for PRIMIR. PRIMIR and NPES members, as well as prospective members, are welcome to attend the 2012 Summer Meeting. Business development managers, product managers, market research analysts and others who are tasked with following and formulating data and trends about the graphic communications and packaging/converting industries will find the essential information presented at PRIMIR meetings beneficial.
