PBI Print & Media Conference Midwest
May 19th, 2011
Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare
If you work at the intersection of print and digital media communications, this event is calling your name.
Print Buyers International is on the move. We’re heading west – Midwest, that is – to Chicago, IL for the first-ever PBI Print & Media Conference Midwest on May 19th.
Who Should Attend
Print buyers, print production managers, graphic designers, creative directors, and marcom pros who work with print as well as digital media.
Like our annual conference in New England, this first-ever PBI Midwest conference offers customers insights on some of the most pressing challenges you face today, from some of the leading minds in the industry.
We’ll deal with these and other key issues:
- What’s really going on with digital printing?
- How are print buyers dealing with new media trends?
- Where’s the print industry headed?
- What does a successful cross-media marketing campaign look like?
