The MPC conference is an industry wide conference for all press and post-press users. All are invited. Please include us in your 2017 planning process. Below is an overview of the 2016 conference and a look ahead for 2017. Registration is now open, and we continue to grow.
The Metro Production Conference Board of Directors would like to thank all of you for your attendance and participation at the 2016 conference. It was a huge success. This confirms our beliefs that having an all inclusive conference for the entire industry has value. We had 145 newspaper delegates from 71 different print sites located in 5 countries. The conference was also supported by 60 vendor companies including Goss, manroland, KBA, TKS, and Muller Martini. Wow, what a turn out.
A big thank you also to all the presenters for their contributions and willingness to share their knowledge and experience. We thank our technical experts and industry specialists for providing valuable information in dealing with production issues. As promised, the presentations are posted on our web site for your use at www.metroproduction.org A list of all attendees is also available there.
For 2017, we have committed to stay at the SaddleBrook Resort and the dates will be
June 1,2, and 3. We anticipate our attendance will continue to grow and we look forward to bringing more people together to continue the discussion and training. Including post press users, single wide users and inviting all equipment manufactures to the Conference has added a new, and we feel improved dimension. This is an industry wide conference. We were also fortunate to have The Florida Business Continuity Group open up their Thursday meeting to all MPC delegates. This hopefully provided valuable information that can help sites manage through any potential business interruption.
We hope you will not only plan to join us next year but also spread the word so that others may have the opportunity to benefit and contribute to our meetings. Your comments and suggestions are appreciated as they help us develop ways to improve the conference and to keep it current and valuable. If you have suggestions for topics, or a presentation, please contact us. All Board members contact information is available under the “Board of Directors” tab on the left side of the web site home page.
