PICA Annual Meeting & Industry Briefing Session

June 7, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

Join us for an overview of the “Industry Briefing” with Bryan Hall, Chairman of the Board of PIA. Industry briefing includes:

  • PIA Highlights
  • What’s happening in printing outside of the Carolinas

Followed by Dr. Joe Webb who will present “This Century’s Third Decade: Are You Ready?”

Technological change is not a matter of faster, better, cheaper… it creates new opportunities and destroys old ones and disrupts industry structures whether you’re ready for them or not.

Dr. Joe Webb, known for his contrarian and “tough love” perspective offers actionable observations about print and the media marketplace, why engaging print buyers and communications executives is so different today, the change from selling to business development processes, the cowardly side of mergers and acquisitions, industry financial issues and the growing capital shortage, why you can’t believe the research about preference for printed goods, and how the industry evolving stream of specialties has profound impacts on planning, marketing, and investing. Hear about these now from our industry’s most prolific commentator, forecaster, and strategist, known for challenging the common wisdom.

Attendees will receive copies of Dr. Joe’s books, The Third Wave (courtesy of HP), Cloud Production: A New Pathway to Profitability (courtesy of Konica-Minolta), and UnSquaring the Wheel: Comprehensive and Scalable Transformation. Copies are limited, so please sign up early to ensure your spot and your books are available; space and copies are limited.

This may be your last chance to hear Dr. Joe in this role. He has announced that he is retiring from WhatTheyThink in June, making this one of his final speaking events about these topics. This is a special opportunity to get the answers that you need for your company and career. Join us, won’t you?
