Independent Photo Imagers supports 2009 6Sight Future of Imaging Conference

JACKSON, Mich. 6Sight Conferences LLC announced today the support of the Independent Photo Imagers (IPI), the nation’s largest buying group for service specialty retailers. IPI urges its members to attend the 6Sight Future of Imaging Conference to get an inside track on developments in imaging business and technology that will be important to their businesses. The conference, to be held on November 10-12, 2009, at the Monterey Conference Center in Monterey, Calif., will feature numerous developments relevant to successful retail operations, and a special discount is being offered to IPI members.
   “IPI is extremely proud to be a supporter of the 6Sight conference,” said Brent Bowyer, executive director of IPI. “It provides a clear view into the future of the many opportunities that are evolving in the image capture and image archiving industries. For those responsible for vision within their organization, it’s an annual event that is not to be missed.”
   “Brent Bowyer has been a loyal supporter of our executive imaging conferences from the beginning and has participated as a speaker on several occasions,” said Joe Byrd, president of 6Sight Conferences LLC. “The rapidly evolving imaging retail sector has caused many retail leaders and IPI members to expand their scope of interest to see what opportunities will be afforded to them by such product categories as 3D – just one of many topics explored at 6Sight this November. We welcome the input from these merchant executives who have a unique perspective on what their customers are interested in today and what they will adopt in the coming months and years.”
