Eighth Print Media Academy Summer University in Cape Town

(PresseBox) (Heidelberg, ) International specialists and managers from the print media industry meet for further training and to exchange success strategies

The Print Media Academy (PMA) of Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) is hosting the Summer University for the eighth time. This year it is being held from November 11-15, 2007 in Cape Town and is geared to management staff in the print media industry.

"In view of today's market dynamics, it is essential that managers in the print media industry keep themselves up-to-date with the latest industry developments and business strategies," explains Bernd Schopp, Head of the Print Media Academy. This is why the four-day seminar program focuses on both production technology and business management issues.

Well-known speakers will be presenting innovative market approaches, explaining new methods of management to increase productivity, and highlighting ways to optimize the workflow. Further lectures and discussions will cover issues of finance, controlling, quality assurance, color management and the Offset Printing Process Standard. Moreover, participants will be given the opportunity to discuss their own practical experience with the experts.

The Summer University has established itself as an important international forum for the print media industry. The event also gives participants from different countries the opportunity to talk informally about their experiences and to make personal contacts. In Cape Town too, the Summer University will be rounded off by an attractive supporting program, including an evening event and a visit to a local print shop. Cape Town is an ideal seminar location for anyone wanting to escape the European winter and experience summer in South Africa.

The event will be held at the SAS Hotel Waterfront. The conference fee is 2,800 Euro plus VAT. The price includes accommodation, lunch, refreshments, all seminar documents, and the "Handbook of Print Media" by Professor H. Kipphan. Participant numbers are limited to 25. The seminar will be held in English.
