2010 Owners Conference Will Show Execs How to ‘Transform Strategy into Action’

Paramus, N.J. – 6/25/2010 – The NAQP 2010 Owners Conference returns to Chicago this fall, enabling attendees to take advantage of two-and-a-half days of educational sessions on topics of specific concern to small commercial and quick printing businesses, immediately prior to the industry-wide programs and exhibits of GRAPH EXPO 2010. Themed “Transform Strategy into Action!”, the Sept. 30-Oct. 2 Owners Conference will be held at Chicago’s InterContinental Hotel. GRAPH EXPO 2010 will take place Oct. 3-6 at McCormick Place South.

“Leaders in this industry know it’s time to transform solid strategies into actionable and measurable tactics to get the job done,” said NAPL President and Chief Executive Officer Joseph P. Truncale. “Owners or general managers of quick, small commercial, or digital printing companies with 25 or fewer employees will not only get real-world insights and motivation at this year’s Owners Conference, but will be able to network with their peers about the specific concerns of companies in their vital industry sector.”

NAPL addresses the unique needs of small printers through NAQP, which focuses specifically on the interests of owner-operated independent and franchise businesses. The Owners Conference is the only industry event tailored exclusively for small commercial and quick printing companies.

The 2010 Owners Conference will offer attendees information on developing practical applications for a variety of strategic initiatives, including customer analysis for greater profitability, pricing integrated services, marketing with social media, and communicating green practices to clients and prospects.

Other event highlights include a “Quick and Small Commercial Industry Snapshot” by NAPL Chief Economist Andrew Paparozzi, a conference Ideas Exchange, the annual PrintImage Excellence Awards presentation, and the tabletop Supplier Showcase reception, offering a preview of what attendees can see at GRAPH EXPO 2010.
