National Association for Printing Leadership (NAPL) Senior Vice President and Chief Economist Andrew Paparozzi will be a featured speaker at Printing Hub 2013 in Chicago, Ill., May 14-16. Paparozzi, who was a standout speaker at Printing Hub’s inaugural event last year, will offer his insightful analysis of industry trends as we approach the midpoint of 2013.
"I'm delighted to be part of Printing Hub 2013 because everything that is presented at this conference is actionable,” says Paparozzi. “Everything is about what we can do right now to grow profitably in an industry that still offers plenty of opportunity—just not in the same old places or by doing the same old things."
Printing Hub 2013 is being held at the Chicago Hilton and promises to repeat the real-world, no-nonsense approach of last year’s event. “Printing Hub 2012 was a different animal,” says event sponsor Tawnya Starr, President, PrinterPresence. “An intensive, action-oriented experience, we covered the gamut from how to properly leverage social media to positioning yourself as a marketing services provider to concrete steps that will help you become more profitable and effective in your daily operations.
“All our 2012 presenters took a pledge to include action steps that you could use right away,” she continues. “As a result, our attendees walked away with a strategic plan and all the knowledge needed to implement it. As we did last year, our 2013 program will focus only on what you can really use in your business right now.”
The event kicks off on May 13 at 6 p.m. with a Welcome Reception where attendees will have the chance to win dinner in Chicago, and the conference begins with keynote Andy Paparozzi on Tuesday, May 14. The Printing Hub conference is immediately followed by a PrinterPresence Users Group starting the afternoon of May 15 and running through May 16.
“In coming weeks we will be announcing more of our featured speakers, session topics, and related activities,” says Starr. To learn more, go to www.printinghub2013.org, where you can sign up to receive the latest information on speakers and conference events.
