Print United, the inaugural Dscoop EMEA conference, has lined up industry experts Nick Devine and Mike Ferrari to deliver educational sessions. Print United will be held 7-9 November 2012 at the Hotel Arts in Barcelona, Spain. All educational sessions will be presented in English with live translations in Spanish, Italian, French and German.
Devine is founder and publisher of The Print Coach, a company helping printers in 15 countries grow sales, increase profits and improve their marketing. He will present a Deep-Dive Seminar, a 1.5 hour in-depth session on “High-Margin Selling: How to Find, Win, Keep and Grow the Most Profitable Customer in Your Market.”
Ferrari is a packaging industry veteran who, after completing a successful 32-year career at the Procter & Gamble Company, founded Ferrari Innovation Solutions, where he coaches leaders and develops strategic innovation portfolios to guide business growth through packaging. He will deliver the session “How to Talk to Brands.”
“The foundation of Print United is based on the successful conferences held in North America for the past seven years, but it covers topics specific to HP Graphic Arts customers in EMEA,” said Jon Tolley, conference chairman and managing director at U.K.-based Prime Group. “Delegates will be able to get the most out of their conference experience by choosing whether they would like to hear sessions delivered in English, Spanish, Italian, French or German.”
In addition to the educational programming, Print United has expanded to include tours of Dscoop member shops and the HP EMEA Graphic Arts Customer Center on 7 November.
