What’s a hosted summit?

Simply put, hosted summits are a unique way to engage buyers and sellers outside of the traditional trade show. The Wide-Format Summit places great emphasis on providing an environment conducive to relationship-building and business development. Qualified attendees benefit from top-notch programming as well as peer-to-peer networking and the ability to see and compare some of the most innovative technologies in digital printing. Many of these interactions take place in boardroom case study sessions and pre-scheduled 1:1 meetings. Networking functions including meals and entertainment provide plenty of additional opportunities to get to know your industry colleagues. The key benefit for both attendees and sponsors is that the Wide-Format Summit will bring in the right people for the right conversations.

What is a boardroom case study?
  • Sponsors have the opportunity to deliver “Case Study” presentations to groups of 10-12 attendees in a private “Boardroom” setting. These presentations are not sales pitches or product demonstrations and sponsors often bring in a customer to lead the session. They are educational in nature, showcasing how a specific solution or tool solved a problem or created an opportunity. It is an opportunity for sponsors to engage a small/focused audience in an interactive and problem-solving environment.
What is a 1:1 meeting?

A pre-arranged, private, sit-down meeting to discuss your organization’s challenges, needs, etc. and to determine whether there are any potential business matches between buyer and seller.

Where does the Wide-format Summit take place?

The Wide-format Summit will take place at the Hyatt Lost Pines in Austin, Texas on April 20-22, 2020.
