NPOA New England Regional Road Show
“Wide Format – Print, Cut & Make Money!”

Wide format is a hot topic for NPOA members. The sessions with Skip Grant in Orlando for the 2015 Annual Conference were well attended and highly-rated. The Wide Format Study released earlier this year is a popular download for members at the NPOA Bookstore. So we’re bringing the topic to our members with the first Regional Road Show in New England.[Check out the agenda]

Committee chairs Chuck Pappas, Arlington MA and Jim Sullivan, Chelmsford MA are heading up the New England Road Show, sponsored by Mimaki and Grant Graphics, featuring Skip Grant’s “Print, Cut & Make Money!” seminar. The road show will take place on Friday, November 13 at the Mimaki headquarters in Auburndale, MA from 10a – 4p. [Road Show Committee]

In the morning session, Skip will discuss why new ink formulations and media developments can help boost your bottom line. You will explore strategies for targeting new opportunities and developing a quick and effective selling system.  Come learn how easy it is to produce hundreds of profitable jobs on wide format equipment.  Join us for this dynamic session designed to both teach and motivate you to take your business to the next level.

In the afternoon, Skip will facilitate a panel of printers who will share their tips and strategies for successfully producing wide format. NPOA board members Barry Martin, Dennis Trump, and John Henry were instrumental in creating the first ever Wide Format study for NPOA. They will provide attendees with real world strategies for wide format profitability.

Mimaki will provide a tour and equipment discussion for attendees interested in the latest equipment for producing wide format sales.
