Mark your calendars for International Print Day
TORONTO—International Print Day debuts this year Oct. 8, promising to unite the global print community with a single conference virtually accessible online to everyone.

The initiative expands on a series of weekly industry-wide Twitter conversations hosted by PrintMediaCentr's Deborah Corn, one of the new conference's organizers.

"PrintMediaCentr's weekly Twitter #printchat, 4 p.m. Eastern Time every Wednesday, already hosts the global print community conversations where they share ideas, questions, answers, knowledge and information about their business, products and services from wherever they may be," said Corn in a statement.

"While we keep #printchat on the conversational level, expanding the concept to a yearly virtual event open to the global print and integrated marketing community, and incorporating the service providers and educators who help us all do our jobs, is a pivotal progression for our industry," she said.

The organizers say the conference's content is being developed "for the community by the community," and aside from providing general info and educational guidance will also aid smaller companies in sharing their services alongside the major players.

"Too often the word 'competition' gets in the way of open knowledge sharing. We are hoping that for one day a year we can all get together and help each other for the bigger picture of print, the community and the industry," said Corn.

A list of speakers and local viewing party events are in the works.

Registration is open and more information is available at the International Print Day website.
