Bowl / Bocce / Network / Learn / Food!

Break the winter blahs – join us at Pinstripes for learning, networking, food and games. We’ll enjoy exclusive use of our private lanes in Pinstripes’ comfortable upscale atmosphere. Come for the presentation, the games or both!

Daniel Dejan

First, at 4:30 p.m. Daniel Dejan of Sappi Fine Paper will give a special presentation, Evolution of Offset & Print.

Our culture is constantly being influenced by fads, trends and occasionally truly disruptive technology. There are many new evolving technologies available- some in their infancy, others maturing and finding their way into the market in the most amazing ways. It raises the question, how do we integrate them into our current sales and marketing strategies? While some may be pricey now, we have seen the cost of many technologies only a few years old become affordable and a part of day-to-day life. Some of these new technologies may only have a few providers now but as we have seen so often, if there is market demand there will be more and more suppliers- many coming from the most unexpected places (even the graphic arts industry- especially the print community and related supply chain manufacturers).

Please join us in a discussion of new technology such as image recognition as a link between ink-on-paper and digital marketing communications, OLED (organic light emitting diodes) – paper thin monitors being incorporated into unique direct marketing and publishing campaigns, the ability to print electronic and digital circuitry being used for a multitude of new products including packaging, interior design, greeting cards and more. We’ll discuss how the printing industry is incorporating new technology to evolve in ways we would not have believed only a few years ago.

Networking immediately follows the presentation.


At 6:00 p.m., we begin the bowling and bocce. Cash bar, and a delicious pizza and flatbread buffet. (Pinstripes is known for their Italian-American cuisine, and we are in for a treat.) Come get together, re-connect with industry friends and have a lot of fun. Let’s see who takes home bragging rights for highest (or lowest) score!  Spouses, guests and friends are welcome!
