Leading Publishers, Distributors, Book Printers, and Vendors Slated for Second London Digital Book Printing Forum
(PRESS RELEASE) Charlottesville, VA and London, U.K. (June 6, 2011) —INTERQUEST, a leading market and technology research and consulting firm serving the digital printing and publishing industry, today announced an impressive lineup of speakers and panelists from leading vendors, printers, and publishers for its second London Digital Book Printing Forum. The full-day educational forum, which will focus on trends and opportunities in digital book manufacturing, will be held Wednesday, June 22 at the Royal Society, Carlton Terrace, in London.
According to David Davis, a Director at INTERQUEST, "Following the enthusiastic reception the Forum received at its first appearance in London last year we're excited to return again in 2011. We've assembled a diverse and wide-ranging lineup of speakers that are at the forefront of efforts to integrate digital print manufacturing into the supply chain. Judging from a similar Forum we held in New York City earlier this year, interest in leveraging digital printing in the book industry is at a heightened level, and we're looking forward to a lively and interactive program in London."
Toby Green, Head of Publishing, OECD and Chair of ALPSP, will deliver the keynote address. He will present the project he recently led to establish an all-digital, print-on-demand solution that is wholly integrated into OECD's global supply chain. He will also discuss how printed books and electronic content complement each other.
Following the keynote, Gilles Biscos, President of INTERQUEST, Ltd., will present key results from the company's latest research in the digital book printing market in North America, Europe and the U.K.
After the INTERQUEST presentation a panel of leading book printers will present their experiences, applications, and challenges in digital book manufacturing and explain how recent technological developments are helping them enhance their solutions. Speakers will include: Mark Jones, Sales Director, Ashford Colour Press; Kate McFarlan, Managing Director, Clays Ltd.; and Simone Bandecchi, Sales Director, Rotolito Lombarda SpA.
