Roland DGA Announces imagiNATION™ 2014 End User Conference

Co-located with SGIA 2014 in Las Vegas, Inaugural Inkjet Printer User Event to Feature Educational Sessions, Industry Experts, Renowned Speakers, Networking Opportunities, and More

Wide-format digital printing leader Roland DGA has announced imagiNATION 2014, a one-day event designed to inspire, educate and empower Roland inkjet printer owners and operators. The inkjet user conference, offering attendees a wealth of information, practical tips and useful resources, will be co-located with the industry's largest North American trade show, the Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA) Expo, on Oct. 21, 2014 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

"Our customers love their Roland printers and printer/cutters, and they've helped us grow and establish ourselves in the sign market," said Roland DGA President Rick Scrimger. "This conference will not only assist Roland users in getting the most out of their advanced inkjets, it will also supply them with expert advice and innovative ideas they can apply in the real world to maximize overall performance, creativity, efficiency and profitability."

The imagiNATION 2014 conference will kick off with breakfast and a keynote address presented by NASCAR legend, racing team owner and Roland user, Richard Childress. Following the keynote, attendees have the option of following one of four workshop tracks (Productivity and Business Management Track, New Applications Track, Software and Design Track, or Color Management Track), or creating a custom curriculum. In all, the 16 individual sessions will cover a wide variety of subjects, ranging from "100 New Ways to Print and Cut with your Roland" and "Expanding into Apparel Decoration" to "Designing for Wide Format" and "Working with Spot Colors." Roland's imagiNATION 2014 event will conclude with a cocktail reception and valuable door prizes.

Event Coordinator Dede Sabey notes that imagiNATION 2014, a conference made possible in part by contributions from Gold Sponsors X-Rite, Digital Blanks, GMG Color, Aberdeen Fabrics, Inc. and CGS, offers something for every Roland inkjet owner, as well as production personnel and graphic designers. "It doesn't matter whether you're a small print service provider just starting out or a large operation, you'll walk away from imagiNATION with new information and skills that will prove to be invaluable to your business," Sabey said.

Registered Roland printer owners and users are invited to attend imagiNATION 2014. The registration fee is $195 per person, with discounts (up to 75 percent off) available for "early bird" registrants.
