thINK executives also announced today that Mark Kelly, commander of Space Shuttle Endeavour’s final mission and space and aviation contributor for NBC News/MSNBC, will serve as a general session keynote speaker.

The third annual user conference will again be held at the Boca Raton Resort & Club on Oct. 9-11, 2017. The inkjet event expects to bring together more than 400 industry guests and educate members on the rise of inkjet and its continued transformation.
“This vast and [still] growing community of customers has come to expect a robust level of informative sessions and engaging inkjet topics from the thINK event, but also the opportunity to hear from great leaders outside the industry,” said Victor Bohnert, thINK executive director.
Attendees at this year’s event will be a part of the first US showing of Canon’s new Océ ProStream continuous feed inkjet press. The latest breed of fast, highly productive inkjet technologies from Canon combines the vibrant colors of offset with the variable-data versatility of digital printing. Adding another dimension to this year’s edition, guests who want an in-depth look at a particular line of inkjet presses will have access to production print inkjet sessions for the sheetfed Océ VarioPrint Series and Continuous Feed Inkjet, designed to raise awareness of inkjet capabilities. Also new to thINK 2017 is the first ever pre-conference Inkjet 101 Session.
“We are gearing up for what is poised to be our biggest year yet, in terms of scale, size, and influence,” said Mark DeBoer, thINK president.
