Kodak Customers to Share Best Practices, Learn about Latest Industry Trends and Solutions at Annual Graphic Users Association Conference


Users of KODAK solutions in commercial and digital printing will gather at the 2007 Graphic Users Association (GUA) North American Conference, May 30 to June 2, at the Arizona Biltmore Resort & Spa in Phoenix. Attendees will meet with industry colleagues, share insights on successful business practices, learn about the latest industry trends and hear about Kodak’s vision for the future and the products that support it.

“The GUA is hands down the best conference I attend all year. The opportunity to network with my peers, Kodak executives and engineers is priceless,” said Rick Riegger, Prepress Manager at Japs-Olson Company, who attended the event last year. “The combination of the business and learning tracks, open labs and classroom training creates a perfect blend of information that all professionals can benefit from.”

Kodak’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Antonio M. Perez will deliver the event’s keynote address. At last year’s event, Perez shared his vision for Kodak’s transformation and outlined the key indicators for success. This year’s keynote address will pick up where that conversation left off as Perez will speak about changes within Kodak, trends in the industry and what Kodak is investing in to help its customers meet the challenges of redefining the graphic arts.

“Kodak’s customers are some of the brightest minds in the graphic communications industry,” Perez said. “GUA gives us the opportunity to meet one-on-one with these customers, learn more about their needs and how Kodak can provide them with the best possible solutions.”

More than 200 GUA members and nearly 100 Kodak executives, product managers, developers and technical experts will interact throughout the conference on a range of topics relating to solutions from Kodak. Speakers from Adobe, Apple, Four51 and the Direct Marketing Council will also present at the event.

The GUA was created to address user questions during the introduction of CTP technology, and acts as a forum for Kodak customers using conventional, digital and hybrid printing equipment, software, and consumables to share information, discuss business trends and address technical matters. Information about the organization and conference is available at Conference attendees receive a credit of $3,000 toward the purchase of selected KODAK software.

“GUA is an independent organization that continues to enjoy a strong relationship with Kodak,” said Tom Clifford, President, GUA. “The GUA North American Conference gives our members a great opportunity to share insights with each other and hear directly from Kodak’s leadership about how they can get the most out of their products and increase return on investment.”
