Produced by The Tiara Group, the 26th annual event will be held May 4-6, 2009, at the Marina del Rey Marriott Hotel in Marina del Rey, California. The event focuses on four key topics in the imaging materials industry--toner, ink jet, media, and sustainability.
Lyra President Charles LeCompte will be the featured keynote speaker at the event's welcome dinner at 7:00 p.m. on May 4. His keynote address, titled, "The Imaging Industry: Trends in Troubled Times," will cover such topics as how supplies power the hard copy business; the three kinds of competition in the hard copy industry (aftermarket, OEM hardware price and OEM cost-per-page); what's going on in China; and the recession and its short- and long-term effects on the industry.
"It is a pleasure to be leading off this 26th annual event--an event that now showcases toner, ink jet and imaging media, as well as the industry's green transition--all under one umbrella. I'm looking forward to sharing Lyra's views and analysis on the driving forces that are impacting the overall state of the imaging supplies industry during this period of uncertainty," said LeCompte.
On Tuesday, May 5, at 5:00 p.m., Lyra Senior Analyst Cortney Kasuba will discuss "Worldwide Hard Copy Industry Trends" as part of the event's Toner Track. Specifically, she will take a look at today's hardware and supplies market trends and what is in the future for these markets, including OEM and aftermarket share and the continued emphasis on partnerships, the environment, and saving money. She will also cover the environmental initiatives and recycling efforts the hard copy industry has undertaken, including insight into user attitudes and behaviors and the expansion of OEM cartridge collections programs.
