Morgana Systems Ltd, Milton Keynes, the UK’s leading manufacturer of equipment for digital finishing, has announced that it will exhibit at this years Association of Print Managers in Education (APME) conference, which will take place from Sunday May 31 through to Wednesday June 3 at Shrigley Hall, Macclesfield, Cheshire.
The aim of the conference is to provide a full and topical programme to stimulate debate and to provide real developmental sessions that keep APME members informed of current trends across design and print amidst the culture of change that will never quite be “business as usual”.
For its part, the post-press for digital print specialist plans to show a range of the latest finishing equipment suited to such customers, including BM60 compact bookletmaker, which will be shown with the PL104 square back option, the recently introduced AeroCut Nano small format cutting device, and the Bindomatic 7000 thermal binder for fast and efficient finishing of documents.
As a vital cog in the wheel, university print and creative teams must adapt. They must provide new and creative solutions to standards that are higher than ever before, and be certain that they are are providing cost-effective services that equal value for money.
Universities are dynamic, living breathing environments that push the frontiers of knowledge. They inspire. Universities also have to balance the books and generate surpluses to support world-changing research as well as the costs of teaching and learning.
Many APME members have to manage far more than traditional print or copying. Together they span photography, video, creative design, scanning, and distance learning for example, and are likely to want to branch out further if they can demonstrate value.
From 2015, universities in England will be able to recruit as many students as they like. Competition between institutions nationally and globally is accelerating. Innovators will stand the best chances of recruiting the best students, attracting/retaining the best staff and offering the best experiences. The stakes are high. Printed marketing materials must stand out and be produced to higher standards that ever before.
Commenting on the decision to show the company’s products at the APME event, Ray Hillhouse, Vice President Offline Business at Morgana Systems, said: “Along with the continued growth in digital print, demands on post-press production in the education sector have also increased. This event will give Morgana a tremendous opportunity to both show and discuss our latest products for this ever more sophisticated market. It will be a delight to meet with both old friends and new from the APME membership.”
