Weymouth, MA – February 10, 2016 – ITEX National Conference and Expo, the office equipment and imaging channel’s premier event, will feature a top-notch educational conference program at the 2016 event. ITEX 2016 will be taking place at the Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale, FL, Monday, March 7th through Wednesday, March 9th. Featuring two and a half days of information and education, coupled with an Executive Workshop, Expo Hall, and networking activities, attendees will learn how to advance, expand and evolve their business in the face of a rapidly changing market.
As the largest event in the office equipment and solutions channel, ITEX 2016 is uniquely focused on addressing the needs of technology focused resellers, MPS dealers, and imaging supply and equipment specialists. With more than 30 conference sessions addressing topics such as Print & Managed Services, Workflow & Solutions, Sales & Marketing, and Data-Driven Business, attendees will learn about the latest challenges and solutions for the channel.
There are an array of sessions that include dealership principals and executives responsible for sales, marketing, technologies, and services. Below are two examples that are representative of the overall conference:
- Session A1 – “Dealer Opportunities in 3D Printing” This session is led by Cathy Lewis, CMO & EVP, Marketing, 3D Systems Inc. Supporting dealer panelists will include: Nick Gondek, Director, Additive Manufacturing – The ACT Group, Andrew Saghini, Director, Sales - Premier 3D Systems, and Mark Gregory, President & CEO, SouthEast Office Systems and Premier 3D Systems.
This session will address an area of real growth beyond 2D printing. Most of us would like to add new technology revenue streams, services and margin to our businesses. 3D printing just might be the ticket. This breakout session will include an overview of 3D Systems, products and applications, plus industry trends. You’ll also hear directly from 2D / 3D resellers on how they adopted 3D printing, what they have learned in the process, and where they see the market heading.
- Session A2/3 – “Wide Format Printing the New Frontier: Print Business Expansion from Office to Industrial Solutions." This is a double session moderated by Frank Cannata, President, The CANNATA REPORT, and a distinguished panel of industry executive leaders: Patrick Morrissey, VP, Americas Sales – EFI, Dino Pagliarello, Director, Product Marketing – Konica Minolta Business Solutions, Fabrizio Soto, GM, Wide Format Division – OKI, and John Stevens, VP, Latex Business & Channel Development – HP.
This panel on wide format will explore entry level products up to and including industrial printers. Discussed are the relative merits of each one of the major areas of concentration for inkjet wide format. In addition, the challenges and opportunities these products represent for independent dealers will be fully vetted. Many other areas will be touched on such as the rapid development of technology in this area, the growth opportunities for dealers, and the desirable level of commitment in order to succeed in this area of the print world.
ITEX will also feature three “Spanish-only sessions” in recognition of the growing Latin American audience. Each of these sessions will be led by Latin American Office Technology industry business executives.
