Global Channel Partners Summit After Show News

Last year saw the inauguration of the Global Channel Partners Summit, which was held during Graph Expo 2012.

Created by GASC/NPES, Dealer Communicator, and PrintMediaPartners, the summit was the only place in the 'PrintWorld' where manufacturers, distributors, dealers and print producers came together to network, to share their ideas and to learn about the latest trends which will affect their individual 'segment' of both their own and the global printmedia channel.

Built uniquely upon original research only available at the Summit event, the Summit provided original insight into real events, people and processes which, when brought together into this, the only global forum for the print media channel, helped us appreciate the past, understand the present as well as offered us an opportunity to develop the printmedia channel of the future.

Among the panel of speakers and channel relevant subjects being presented were;

1) Dr Joe Webb, 'The State of the Channel'. 2) Carl Joachim 'The Digital Engine Opportunity'. 3) Lois Ritarossi, 'Generating Profit from Production Printing Sales'. 4) Marco Boer, 'The Wide Format Market for Dealers'. 5) John Foley, 'How Social Media Works for the Channel'. 6) Gerard Giuliano, 'Channel Success - Is Your Organization Ready?' and 7) Danny Moloney, 'The Future of the Channel'.

The worldwide presence of a 'PrintMedia Channel' is today a global reality. Manufacturers from countries across the globe want to actively sell and market their products to their own and other countries across the globe. Distributors/dealers are constantly looking for the best products and most versatile services which their clients need to better manage their print businesses. Equally, print producers in their turn want to have ready and available access to the print products and services which help them to be more productive and more efficient print operations during our rapidly changing and constantly challenging printmedia realities.

The conventional print media channel duality of manufacturers and distributors / dealers is today with digital methods of distribution a tri-ad which now firmly includes the print producers in both the channel mechanism and the channel process. Whether brought together by technology, melded together by economics or sewn together by diverse personal, computer and social networks, the printmedia channel now includes and involves every aspect of the manufacture, distribution and production of print products and services.

On the show floor, we shall always see and hear about the print production solutions that our vendors and their distribution partners (which many old and familiar names leaving after many years and many new names appearing for the first time) are bringing to market. The market in their turn is represented by the print producers (in many different guises and forms) who are visiting to discover what is new and useful to them in their own daily print production scenarios. The Global Channel Partners Summit serves the evolving and ever changing worldwide printmedia production channel. It is here to provide useful and actionable relevant information, to support access to new production technologies and distribution efficiencies and to point the way forward for the channel. DC
