A perennial favorite, the in-plant panel seminar at Print 17 is back. This year the session is titled "In-Plant Panel: Bold Moves for the Future," and will be held on Monday, September 11th from 11-11:50 am. Register for session R8 before 8/11 and use registration promo code SPSave50 to save $50 on your seminar registration.

It's critically important for in-plants to make "bold moves" to survive and grow long term. Attendees will:

  • Hear about one new service and one new initiative each panelist is working on or has deployed
  • Learn about the rewards- and risks- of bold actions
  • See how the bold moves will increase workflow efficiency, and
  • Hear about the impact of new services and initiatives on these organizations.

New services and initiatives panelists will discuss include: Virtual Reality, inkjet, outdoor wide format, reinventing print on demand, refreshing cut sheet printing to gain workflow efficiency and researching and selecting Web to Print and Print MIS software solutions.

The session features in-plant leaders in Healthcare, Higher Education and Non-profit. Panelists are:

Jimmy Vainstein, Senior Project Manager for The World Bank's Printing & Multimedia Services. Vainstein manages the Bank's printing operations while exploring multimedia technologies for immersive communication experiences. His focus on innovation has help bring value to The World Bank's operation through recent print management workflow integration projects, high-speed inkjet technology implementation and pioneering Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) initiatives.
