Seminar Proposal Submission for The Learning Experience @ PRINT 18
September 30 – October 2, 2018
McCormick Place, Chicago, IL
Relevant educational programming is core to the mission of PRINT, which is to help members of the graphic communication value chain grow their businesses. We are looking for sessions that address the critical issues facing business owners today, with content to help companies increase sales and profitability, discover fresh marketing approaches, boost productivity, improve operations, and learn about new opportunities to expand business.
Seminar sessions are 50 minutes in length, so content should be tight, relatively granular and sharply focused on topic. Computer lab sessions will be shorter than in past years, now at 2 ½ hours (we will provide a helper for each lab to support the instructor with computer/logistic issues.). Please refer to the list of general categories and suggested topics for this year’s Learning Experience. You can choose to cover one or more of these proposed topics but feel free to offer your own, keeping in mind the overarching goal of helping attendees grow their business.
If you are interested in being considered as a seminar presenter, please submit your proposal by Monday, March 18, 2018. Authors of selected proposals will be notified via email by April 9, 2018.
