East Rutherford, N.J. (January 23, 2013)---The National Association of Quick Printers (NAQP) is returning to Nashville, Tenn., for its 2013 Owners Conference, Nov. 7-10, at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center. The conference is geared specifically for the quick and small commercial printer. It will feature a program of speakers and topics tuned to the most pressing management issues faced by this key sector during a time of industry transition.

“We are really excited about  taking our Owners Conference back to Nashville,” says Charlene Sims, President, The Master’s Press, Dallas, Texas, who is serving as Chairperson of the conference Planning Committee. “We know this will be a great venue for a revitalized program our committee will be putting together according to the ‘specifications’ our members have provided through their 2012 event feedback.

“This is a conference that any small commercial printing business owner or executive should attend,” she continues, “because it will address issues that their peers have identified as important, and will feature industry leaders offering the latest strategic and tactical information―ideas that attendees can take home and put to work in their own shops immediately.”

Over the next several weeks, the Planning Committee will be reviewing a wide range of ideas and suggestions from NAQP members, as well as contributing their own business experience, to develop a robust, meaningful program. Sims and the committee members welcome input from anyone in the quick and small commercial printing segment. Email ideas and suggestions to Sims at char@themasterspress.com

“Stay tuned for more information coming soon on program details and early-bird registration discounts,” says Sims. “Meanwhile, be sure to save the date. Nashville will be a fun venue, with many networking opportunities. We hope to see our old friends and make new ones Nov. 7-10 in Tennessee.”
