Hey everyone, my name is Peter, I'm the executive director for Dscoop and I'm going to give you a quick overview of our upcoming Edge Indianapolis conference to be held March 24 - 27 2024.

So first of all Indianapolis, how do I get there?

Well, you can either go by air or go by car, right?

By air: 47 direct flights from across the US, farthest away, of course the West Coast just over four hours. Car is just as easy 4 hours from cities like Chicago, Nashville, all within that short driving distance.

If you're going by air we actually have some airline discounts with both Delta and United. Check our website for the details of that.

Where is the event held? The event will be held at the Indiana Convention Center in downtown Indianapolis Special rate hotels and other landmarks are only a short walk away, and the international airport is 20 minutes by car. The two hotels that we contracted are the JW Marriott and the Marriott. The blue lines are walkways that take you across the street straight into the convention center and everything is right there. Now, what can you expect from this conference?

This is a unique experience. This is not like any other trade show.

You will have access to many educational sessions delivered by members, providing opportunities for peer-to-peer learning, with great keynote speakers. We have something we call the solution showcase.

There will be printing presses running. There will be finishing equipment running. There will be workflow solution demos. There will be media & substrates. There will be tangible experiences.
