REGISTRATION HAS OPENED for WFX: Wide-Format Exchange, a new conference produced by SGIA and ST Media Group (publishers of Screen Printing, Big Picture, and Signs of the Times) that will be held May 21-23 at the Renaissance Minneapolis Hotel, The Depot. Designed as an executive forum for high-volume producers of wide-format graphics, WFX will feature more than 30 educational sessions, networking events, and interactive discussions to explore different strategies businesses can take to make the most of the convergence of markets and technology in the wide-format printing industry.
Opening keynote speaker Ryan Estis will present “Managing Breakthrough Performance in the New Economy.” Estis will encourage participants to challenge conventional leadership practices and embrace progressive techniques and technologies to transform businesses in an increasingly competitive and connected environment.
