President's Welcome

Welcome to DIMA 2009 – The No. 1 venue for innovators in the imaging industry to catch a glimpse of the latest technology, learn the best ideas about marketing new products and services, and network with peers at the highest level.

The DIMA conference has consistently been so valuable to me and my business. This year, we pushed the organizers for more content, so we can stay on top of industry changes and the latest trends, which is proving to be more important than ever before. I’m happy to announce that we have added two more days of DIMA sessions that will take place throughout the PMA 09 trade show ... more.


Steve Olock,
2008 DIMA President
