CHICAGO, IL | More than 2,000 digital print professionals gathered at Dscoop6, the 2011 Digital Solutions Cooperative Annual Conference (a cooperative of HP) graphic arts users), that ran Feb. 17—19 at the Gaylord Palms Hotel and Convention Ctr. in Orlando, FL. This turnout marked significant increases from last year’s event in both attendees and exhibitors, including 95 partners that participated in the Solutions Showcase exhibition.
In addition to the more than 120 educational sessions throughout the three-day event, the organization also launched the Fast Forward Power Pack in conjunction with HP. The Power Pack, an optional extension to Dscoop membership, includes a Business Development Program that positions print service providers as strategic marketing partners to their clients. The program includes a six-month training course that helps companies train their employees and customers on the power of multi-channel marketing, customized marketing collateral, a case study and a press release to build their business.
“Dscoop is an educational forum first and foremost—with well over 200 speakers, Dscoop6 offers education like no other event,” said Mark Sarpa, Dscoop6 conference chairman and CEO of Progressive Solutions. “While the trade show competes with the best of any industry event, members come for the education and networking opportunities. This type of worldwide networking is helping numerous members expand and grow their business.”
Dscoop7 will be held March 22—24, 2012, at the Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Ctr. in Washington, DC.
