The REMCON conference programme, which will be chaired again by Lightwords’ Peter Mayhew, is now live on our events website here. Each day will begin with a morning briefing where visitors can “take a few minutes to network and find out” what’s going on and what’s happened at the show, followed by a short introductory discussion by Mayhew before the programme begins. The programme is subject to change, so keep checking back on our events website for the latest.
The first day will see talks from Connett & Unland GbR’s David Connett on 2016 in the industry; Static Control’s Simon Grimes on the state of the imaging industry; Mayhew on understanding attitudes to print and printing; Static Control’s Tom Claessens on the JetIntelligence products; ETIRA’s Vincent van Dijk on the association’s work this year; Embatex’s Christian Wernhart on a sustainable sales approach; and Uninet Imaging’s Zoltan Matyas on the generational challenge.
The second day’s talks will include a repeat of Grime’s discussion about the state of the industry; followed by a talk from Panovo’s Michael Pantel on remanufacturing wide-format cartridges; a talk from Connett on replacing the “brick-and-mortar” stores in our industry; a repeat of Claessen’s study of the JetIntelligence cartridges; Matyas speaking about the “parallel channels” to remanufacturing; Actionable Intelligence’s Charlie Brewer on what to expect from markets next year; and IDC’s Przemek Kowalski on printing trends in CEE (Central and Eastern Europe) and the MEA (Middle East and Africa).
The second day’s programme is followed by ETIRA’s networking reception in the seminar theatre, sponsored by show organisers Messe Frankfurt. The third day’s talks begin with InfoTrend’s Andrew Carroll on the future of office print; before Grimes’ talk on the state of the imaging industry is repeated; followed by Biuromax’s Olaf Spell discussing OPC drums and why it’s important to use quality products.
This will be followed by a repeat of Claessen’s talk on the JetIntelligence products; a talk from CIG’s Mark Dawson on whether remanufacturing’s value proposition is still valid; a wide-ranging look at the trends for products next year from Charlie Brewer; and a discussion from Armor’s Gerwald van der Gijp on his experiences in the aftermarket and OEM business.
The final day’s programme begins with a repeat of van Dijk’s discussion of ETIRA’s work, followed by another session from Matyas on the generational challenge. Finally, David Connett will give the final seminar, again on replacing “bricks-and-mortar” stores, before one final briefing gives an overview on what the show has brought us.
