Graph Expo 14: The Must See Events

Here at Crawford Technologies we are gearing up for Graph Expo 14, to be held the last week of September. This year’s show is an exciting problem-solving adventure designed to help you make informed purchasing decisions. Aside from what you’ll learn exploring the expansive show floor and networking with industry professionals, you can choose from 50+ educational sessions to gain real “take-home” value that you will put to use as soon as you return to the office.

On top of all that Graph Expo has to offer, Crawford is a part of several special events including our own Solutions Summit on Tuesday, September 30th. The purpose of our Summit at the most innovating and exciting exhibition of Digital, Inkjet, Offset, Flexo, Gravure and Hybrid technologies, products and services for the Commercial, Transactional, Converting and Package Printing, Publishing, Mailing, In-Plant, Photo Imaging, Marketing and Industrial Printing Industries is to leverage an innovative and educational atmosphere to share Crawford innovations and solutions with potential and current customers and users. This will also be a forum where you can get your questions answered by our Crawford team members about current in place solutions and products or future capabilities that are mission critical to your business.

The day will include a keynote on where Crawford is and where we are going, presentations on innovations in workflow, archive, ECM and document accessibility solutions, live demonstrations at the Crawford booth (#344) of our Automated Output Management solution and then lunch at a reception area on the GRAPH EXPO floor. This event is complimentary and is limited to the first 50 attendees. Registration includes admission to the Summit, a networking lunch, and a Graph Expo exhibit hall pass.

Before Crawford’s Solutions Summit on Tuesday morning is the Xplor at GRAPH EXPO panel. The complimentary keynote breakfast panel is moderated by Matt Swain of InfoTrends. The breakfast panel is titled Optimizing Customer Communications Workflows: Addressing Market Shifts and Evolving Client Requirements and will focus on how opportunistic operations are making investments in technology and workflow that are really paying off.

If that’s not enough to fill your calendar, there’s more! Print Media Center presents The Printerverse (#4267) for the third year in a row at Graph Expo. Here, attendees will discover a unique show floor destination designed to help them connect to the hot topics, latest trends, and people who are driving the print and marketing industries forward. Serving as the social media hub on the show floor, this year’s Printerverse will offer attendees an eclectic and interactive mixture of events and learning opportunities including panel discussions, case study presentations, and networking events.

Included in those events is A Day in the Life of an Operations Manager, Sept 29 3pm-4pm. Join Crawford’s David Day, EDP and Jonathan McGrew, EDP to discuss the Operations Manager's day to day functions, how to achieve this year’s (and next) goals and planning to execute on the requirements of the future. There will be coffee, tea, baked goods, some entertainment, but, more importantly, education using a real world example of workflow, document management and document accessibility.

Graph Expo will be held at the McCormick Place South in Chicago, IL. This year's event will take place September 28 - October 1, 2014. For more information on Graph Expo and the events happening around this show please visit:
