Wide-Format from a High Altitude
Ray Weiss, SGIA

SGIA’s wide-format digital guru will set the stage, describing the wide-format opportunity as it is today, and presenting compelling reasons why knowledge is power for anyone entering the wide-format segment, as well as a statistical illustration of the wide-format segment’s top technologies, market areas and products produced.

Inkjet: Applications Drive Selection
Travis Barcelona, Nazdar

With so many wide-format equipment choices available, which machine is the right choice to meet your business’s specific needs? Building on years of experiencing troubleshooting equipment and helping business owners achieve their goals, Travis Barcelona helps you understand the essential considerations (and decisions) needed in equipment selection — including how what you produce dictates the technologies you buy.

A Systematic Approach to Color Management
Jim Raffel, ColorCasters
Ray Weiss, SGIA

While a lot of companies “do” wide-format, a much smaller number do it really well. Image quality, including accurate, repeatable color, is a defining factor among those who hold the top, quality-critical customer accounts. Sure, color management is a science, but its also a process that can be established and followed. Join two certified color management experts as they unlock the secrets of great color.

Lessons in Wide-Format Business
Chuck Payne, Image 360

Setting up a machine and getting your production in check is only part of the wide-format path to success — you must also successfully navigate running the business. In an eye-opening presentation, a successful wide-format business owner helps you understand what you must have in place to help your business succeed and presents strategies for business growth, meeting customer need and making your business stand out from the pack.

All this, and we even throw in cookies and soft drinks at the mid-point! The price is right, and the content is critical. What better way to spend your time in Vegas the afternoon before the Expo opens?
