At the upcoming IRgA / ERA convention, Paul Doherty to reveal the keys to future success for Reprographers

From the IRgA Group on Linked in, I’ve copied off a message – to all reprographers - from the President of the IRgA (Kimberly LongCEO at Reprodux Copy Centres):

“The joint ERA/IRgA convention this year is really shaping up to be the reprographic industry’s must attend event!”
“The conference will feature the return of the Bukovsky award, recognizing leaders in the Reprographic industry, as well a renowned keynote speaker Paul Doherty from the AIA. Paul will enlighten us on how the reprographics industry has been entrusted with the “digital DNA” of the built environment, and is poised to play a vital role in the dramatic changes now reshaping the AEC industry.
Please join us in Baltimore on April 3-5 to learn more!”

And, this next message is one that appears on the IRgA Today web-site, it is a message to you from Paul Doherty and from Ed Avis, Managing Director of the IRgA, about the presentation Paul Doherty will be giving at the upcoming convention in Baltimore:

            “Core competencies of document management, project lifecycle, document/data processing and delivery, communication equipment, and traditional printing can be leveraged to meet the AEC market demands while providing valued services that can increase [the reprographic industry’s] bottom line,” Doherty says.
            Doherty is the president and CEO of the digit group, inc., a global leader of cloud-based solutions for the built environment. His current work is implementing Smart City solutions throughout the world. He is the co-founder of the critically acclaimed AEC Hackathon, which launched at Facebook headquarters in Silicon Valley in November 2013.
            Doherty will explain essential advances in AEC – such as big data, data visualization, smart buildings, and smart cities – and how the reprographics industry can contribute. He will include case studies of projects from around the world.
            “The reprographics industry is challenged to control, manage, and lead these new transformative processes or relegate itself as just another commoditized service in the AEC market,” Doherty says.
            The ERA/IRgA convention will include a full day of educational programming designed to help reprographics businesses capitalize on these developments.

If, as the lead-in to Paul Doherty implies, Paul is going to reveal the key services that Reprographers must offer in the future to remain relevant to the A/E/C industry and to increase revenues and profits, why would any Reprographer not want to attend?!!!!
