Visitors to the joint event will be treated to a tour around Canon’s ‘The Centre’ showroom, where they will be able to see various kit from the manufacturer up close

The day-long, free-to-attend event will take place on November 22nd at Canon’s ‘The Centre’ showroom, near to the NEC in Birmingham, operating under the header ‘Cut Through Uncertainty and Beyond: Future Proof your Business Strategy’.

The seminar will feature a series of expert panel discussions and include input from some of the leading names in print, including BPIF chief executive Charles Jarrold.

Jarrold, who will pick up in the BPIF’s latest ‘Printing Outlook, Quarterly Printing Industry Trends Survey’, comments: “Our latest trends survey has clearly indicated that confidence is dropping among print service providers regarding their outlook for the UK economy. 

“Planning and developing a robust strategy for 2018 should be top of the agenda for every print business owner.”

Finding answers on your own can be challenging, so this BPIF/ Canon partner event will really help businesses to tackle the issues and questions head on

He continues: “Finding answers on your own can be challenging, so this BPIF/ Canon partner event will really help businesses to tackle the issues and questions head on. The moderated panel discussions and presentations will provide a vital help for companies and organisations looking to future proof their business strategies.”

Other sessions on the day include ‘Improving business performance through strategic innovation’ and ‘State of play of the print market and sales challenges’.

Places are limited at the special event, which also includes a networking lunch and a tour of the Canon showroom, and those interested in attending are being urged to book their place sooner rather than later.

Duncan Smith, director of industrial and production solutions at Canon UK, adds: “At Canon, we take a collaborative approach to helping our customers to build confidence and face the challenging business environment. This important event we are running with the BPIF will help businesses mitigate the risks and develop opportunities to ensure they continue to thrive and grow profitability.”

“Delegates will also have the chance to see at first hand numerous examples of our world-class technology in The Centre showroom, as well as get real insight into our service, applications and business development support that are essential parts of the Canon offering.”

The event could prove a valuable hub of information for print service providers, which, according to the latest BPIF Quarterly Printing Industry Trends Survey, are lacking in confidence regarding the future of the UK economy.

From the falling pound to continual pressure from competitor pricing, there are many factors impacting the future of print, but this event will help companies to regain some confidence and enable them to plot a successful growth trajectory.
