Esko-Graphics' Customers to Receive New Product Previews
CARMEL, IN and BATAVIA, OHIO—The two user group associations devoted to Esko-Graphics products, the Artios Users Group International (AUGI) and the Association of Esko-Graphics Users Group (AEG) announce that their 2005 annual meetings will be held during May 15-18 and May 12-14 respectively at The Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak Resort in Phoenix, Arizona.
AEG meeting focuses on Scope
During the AEG annual meeting, members will have an opportunity to participate in training sessions, roundtable discussions, seminars and hands-on labs. As always, the days will be full of valuable information and the evenings will be full of entertaining ways to network with industry colleagues and Esko-Graphics personnel. Attendees will have an opportunity to offer suggestions for improvements to Esko-Graphics' solutions and learn new tips to help improve their workflows and maximize their efficiency.
Following pre-meeting educational sessions, Kim Graven-Nielsen, CEO of Esko-Graphics will commence the meeting with an update on the state of Esko-Graphics. A look to the future development of the company and products is also planned. This introductory session precedes an overall presentation of the Scope workflow concept with a focus on presenting the value for customers - the packaging buyers at large consumer product goods companies and retailers. Sessions will include reviews of components such as BackStage, WebCenter, PackEdge, DeskPack and other system technologies. Adobe Systems will also be participating in the program.
New for 2005 are a number of interesting activities. A breakfast roundtable, 'Marketing Your Esko-Graphics System', will help members sell the benefits of their Esko-Graphics Scope systems to their own customers, the packaging buyers. A Digital Flexo Track offers topics geared specifically for this growing segment of the industry.
A popular repeat from last year is Access Esko, a live, interactive production facility that takes users from concept to design on to preflight, normalization then to output and onto the shelf. At Access Esko users can get a hands-on look at all of Esko-Graphics' latest products, with the opportunity to spend one-on-one time reviewing their workflow with an Esko-Graphics professional service consultant.
