"We're excited for Connect attendees to hear from these two great industry insiders, and to take away valuable insights and lessons they can apply in their own roles," said Frank Mallozzi, senior vice president of worldwide sales and marketing, EFI. "Keynote presentations are just one part of the Connect experience - leaders from around the globe can attend indepth educational sessions, test drive the latest EFI products and industry vendor offerings, voice their opinions at user group meetings, discuss industry trends, and network with peers, all while enjoying the luxurious Wynn Las Vegas at a special rate of $169 a night. Connect is an excellent opportunity for print providers to position their business for the months and quarters to come."
Sheila Morgan, owner of Lipps Printing in New Orleans, said: "During a downturn in the economy, we attend Connect to look for the next thing we can do to make things better, to prepare our business. There's always something we learn -- the interaction with other users, other owners and the EFI staff is invaluable."

The live auction will be held during the sponsors' appreciation reception on Mon., April 19th, and will feature over 50 items including everything from addon software and consulting services to a new management system.
