Fairfax, Virginia — Registration for the Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA) and ST Media Group’s WFX: Wide-Format Exchange conference is now open. The event will take place in Minneapolis May 21-23, 2018.

WFX is designed to give top executives from high-volume, wide-format print providers and printers an opportunity to network and connect with their peers to discuss challenges and solutions in the adoption of wide-format processes.

“When you’re at WFX, you’ll be immersed in an environment that fosters connection and collaboration. You’ll learn almost as much from your peers as you do from the conference program,” said SGIA’s Director of Community Development, Sarah Perkins.

Conference sessions will explore different strategies businesses can take to make the most of the convergence of markets and technology in the wide-format graphics industry. In addition to networking events, interactive roundtable discussions and case studies will foster new ideas and innovations that drive productivity and problem solving.

Topics will include “Preserving Customer Loyalty,” “Why the Retail Store is Evolving, Not Disappearing,” “What Single-Pass Printing Means for Your Business” and “The Women in Print Panel.” Keynote speaker Ryan Estis will address the need to embrace change and progressive techniques to drive growth in your company.

“We’ve worked with leading graphics producers to create a program that will keep executives abreast of the changes taking place in wide-format graphics,” said Steve Duccilli, Senior Vice President of Content, ST Media Group, and WFX chair.

The WFX Advisory Council includes leaders from Ad Graphics, Image Options, Pictura Graphics, and many other reputable leaders. To see the full list, visit the WFX Advisory Council page.
