NPES, the trade association for suppliers to printing, publishing and converting businesses, will hold its 2010 Industry Summit, an annual economic and industry trends conference, March 22–24 at InterContinental Harbor Court in Baltimore, Md. A combination of two NPES conferences, including PRINT OUTLOOK 2010 March 22–23 and the PRIMIR Spring Meeting March 23–24, the 2010 Industry Summit will offer a survey of the current economic landscape and what it means to individual companies and the graphic communications industry at large.

“Recovery in this new business climate will not necessarily translate to an automatic increase in business or a quick rise in profits for graphic communications businesses,” says Ralph Nappi, NPES president. “The NPES 2010 Industry Summit gives attendees a thorough understanding of just how our industry has been affected by the recession, how the recovery will unfold and, most importantly, how they can take greatest advantage of the recovery as we go forward.”
