INTERQUEST 2008 Digital Book Printing Forum

As in 2006 and 2007, INTERQUEST—a leading market and technology research and consulting firm serving the digital printing & publishing industry—is offering a special seminar devoted to digital book production. INTERQUEST analysts will present key results from their latest study on digital book printing. Attendees will be updated on key trends, challenges, and developments in the digital book printing market. The forum will include two user panels—one in the morning focused on the economic model and how to quantify the benefits of digital book printing, and one in the afternoon focused on color printing opportunities and challenges. Attendees will hear success stories from their peers and they will leave with actionable items to implement, expand, or refine digital book printing at their companies.
