Philadelphia, Pa. -- INTERQUEST, a leading market and technology research and consulting firm serving the digital printing and publishing industry, and Book Business magazine, a trade publication for book printing and publishing and the producer of BookTech Conference & Expo, unveiled a partnership for the two organizations to provide an educational forum on trends and opportunities on digital book and manual production. The Digital Book Printing Forum will be held March 21, 2006, during the annual BookTech Conference & Expo at the Hilton New York in midtown Manhattan.
"Digital printing provides an enormous but largely untapped opportunity for printers and publishers," says Gilles Biscos, president of INTERQUEST. "We have followed recent developments in the book industry closely, and find plenty of enthusiasm for digital technology as well as evidence that things are changing. As one of the leading providers of research into emerging markets and applications, we are excited to be partnering with Book Business magazine to expose BookTech attendees to the trends and opportunities digital printing opens up to their industry."
Sponsored by a number of leading industry vendors, including Delphax, IBM Printing Systems, Nipson, Laser Roll Systems, Hewlett Packard and Xerox Corporation, the Digital Book Printing Forum will utilize a combination of recent INTERQUEST research, expert presentations, and success stories to provide the audience with an overview of the market, and insights into the challenges and opportunities confronting book printers and publishers.
"The theme of this year's BookTech Conference is managing evolution in the industry, and what better way to prepare attendees for coming changes than to expose them to this important and exciting application of digital printing," says Mark S. Hertzog, general manager of the BookTech Conference & Expo.
