Newton, MA (PRWEB) March 29, 2007
Lyra Research (http://www.lyra.com), the digital imaging authority, will kick off Recycler Publishing and Events' Remax Düsseldorf 2007 trade show with a preshow conference called "Changing Channels: European and Global Market Shifts in Toner and Ink Supplies," to be held on Tuesday, April 17, 2007, from 2 to 5 p.m. This conference, which precedes the biggest European trade show for the printer cartridge remanufacturing industry, is sponsored by MK Imaging, the new brand of products made by Mitsubishi Kagaku Imaging Corporation, one of the world's premier independent manufacturers of precision organic photoconductor (OPC) drums and toner.
Remax attendees are invited to join Lyra's imaging consumables analysts for in-depth analysis of worldwide and regional toner and ink jet cartridge markets. With continued consolidation, private labeling, and rising consumer demand causing shifts in distribution channels for aftermarket cartridges, aftermarket vendors need to reassess and adjust their business strategies to maximize sales and profits. Lyra's analysts will present market forecast data and selected results from Lyra's 2006 Western European research study of aftermarket ink jet cartridges and desktop ink jet media. Attendees have the opportunity to hear Lyra analysts' perspective on key issues during a substantial question-and-answer session. For an additional €25, Remax Düsseldorf 2007 attendees can register for this must-attend conference (conference registration costs €75 and includes an entrance ticket to Remax 2007, a €50 value).
