INTERQUEST, a leading market and technology research and consulting firm in digital printing and publishing, today announced the seventh annual Digital Printing in Government and Higher Education Forum. The seminar, which is free for government and higher education professionals, will take place in Washington D.C. on Wednesday, November 14, 2012 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the U.S Government Printing Office.
According to Gilles Biscos, President of INTERQUEST, "We've held this event in Washington for six years running and are very excited to partner with the GPO this year. We believe the synergy between our organizations will greatly enhance the event."
The forum is designed around recent and on-going INTERQUEST research in digital printing in governmental and higher education environments. The morning and afternoon sessions will feature presentations, case studies, and end-user panels addressing the needs of both audiences. It will also feature a panel of executives from leading vendors who will present their companies' strategies and solutions for the government and higher education markets.
The keynote of the event will be delivered by the Acting Public Printer Davita Vance-Cooks, and attendees will have the opportunity to tour part of GPO's printing operation.
"Holding the event at the very seat of printing in Washington is not only appropriate, but will offer attendees the opportunity to view GPO's operations in action," said Biscos.
The seminar is sponsored by leading industry players, including Epson, Finch Paper, Hewlett-Packard, Kodak, NPC, NewPage, Pitney Bowes, RISO, Standard Graphics, and Xerox, with additional support from the Association of College and University Mail Services (ACUMS), the Interagency Council on Printing & Publications Services (ICPPS), the National Association of College and University Mail Services (NACUMS), the National Government Publishing Association (NGPA), Xplor Mid Atlantic Region (MAR), and In-Plant Graphics.
The event is targeted at government and higher education users, including publishing and graphic services, in-plants and CRDs, print and mail services, IT/data center operations, purchasing and procurement departments, and communications professionals, as well as service providers.
