Over 1,100 digital printing professionals are currently gathering and engaging in learning sessions at the Dscoop Edge St. Louis World Expo. The “gateway to growth” is in full swing at the America’s Center in downtown St. Louis.
Running from May 7-10, Dscoop’s flagship conference brings together an increasing number of print enthusiasts globally who are eager to acquire new strategies, explore innovative tools and technologies, establish new partnerships, and enjoy the experience. Notably, about one-third of Edge St. Louis attendees are participating in the annual event for the first time.
Dscoop stands out as the largest digital print community worldwide, boasting more than 16,000 HP Industrial digital press owners and their teams spread across over 100 countries. The global nature of Dscoop is prominently featured this week, with members from around the world sharing compelling stories of collaboration across borders, market segments, and technologies.
“The community and camaraderie of Dscoopers worldwide make this event unique—the level of idea-sharing and support here is already exceptional,” notes Dscoop Executive Director Peter van Teeseling. “Dscoop’s year-round events and programs act like a power source, and we love when printers connect to gain new ideas and novel ways to progress.”
In alignment with this, Dscoop Edge St. Louis is strategically designed to equip attendees with actionable strategies based on the experiences of their peers and insights from sales, marketing, and technology experts. The event features sixty-five presentations and panel discussions spread across seven different tracks.
Attendees at Dscoop Edge St. Louis are actively seeking ways to innovate, automate, and excel. They are engaging with over sixty Dscoop partners in the Solutions Showcase, where many partners have brought equipment to run live applications and demonstrations. A highlight of the event is the first-time appearance in North America of the HP Indigo 200K Digital Press, showcasing its impact on speed and productivity in the packaging market.
Moreover, attendees are learning about the launch of the Dscoop Distributed Print Exchange platform, developed in collaboration with the HP PrintOS Site Flow team. This platform aims to streamline the outsourcing of digital print jobs to trusted partners, enabling printers to expand their product offerings and geographical reach while simultaneously reducing time, costs, and carbon footprint during product delivery.
“The global Dscoop community has an impressive history of looking forward instead of backward,” affirms Kyle Pendley of the Arizona State University Print and Imaging Lab, and Dscoop Edge St. Louis Conference Chair. “Even as our companies face significant challenges, we do whatever it takes to continually learn, connect, and advance. That’s the awesome spirit of Dscoop!
“And over the next few days, that’s the incredible value of bringing our hearts and minds together here in St. Louis.”
