Dscoop EMEA has launched its Open Membership scheme to provide free access to all of the association’s online content, including forums, reports and newsletters, to HP’s entire install base.

Dscoop is an independent community of graphic arts business owners and technical professionals who use HP Indigo, Scitex, Latex and IHPS equipment. Dscoop EMEA, the arm of the association covering Europe, the Middle East and Africa, said making itself more accessible will increase the number of companies and the number of individuals able to benefit from Dscoop’s online resources.

Dscoop is also to introduce a premium subscription option, priced at 299 EUR (317 USD) a year. Premium members will have access to exclusive services, such as educational and conferencing material, and benefit from unique offers, events and training, including a 100 EUR (106 USD) discount on the upcoming Dscoop EMEA 2016 conference.

The fifth Dscoop EMEA conference will take place in Tel Aviv, Israel on April 5-8 next year, and the theme will be ‘Connect to Grow’.

Julian Marsh of Harrier LLC, Dscoop EMEA 2016 chairman, said: ‘There is a wealth of industry and technical information, business tools and community forums now available to all HP customers. At Dscoop, we see this initiative as a means to take the advantages of Dscoop membership both wider and deeper within the industry – enabling more companies to join the community, access these business-enhancing tools, and more individuals within those companies to utilise the power of the Dscoop network. As this happens, it is sure to have a significant impact on member companies’ profitability, education and business growth, which is always Dscoop’s ultimate aim.’

‘The Dscoop conferences provide a unique opportunity for printing companies, operating in all market sectors, to come together to learn and network,’ added Gido van Praag, vice president and general manager of the HP Graphics Solutions business segment in EMEA. ‘With so many like-minded business leaders together in one place, it’s the ideal platform for print professionals to uncover the latest industry developments, share best practice and take inspiration from HP’s cutting-edge digital print technology as well as the latest innovations from partners.’

The 2015 Dscoop EMEA conference, Dscoop Open, took place in Dublin, Ireland earlier this year, and featured a wealth of suppliers and technology as part of a ‘Solutions Showcase’ mini exhibition, including numerous HP Indigo presses.

‘The 2016 Solutions Showcase will be packed with inspiring HP Indigo, Latex and Pagewide printing technologies, as well as partner workflow, finishing and substrate innovations. In total, the Solutions Showcase will cover approximately 36,000 sq m – nine times the square footage attendees saw in 2015,’ said van Praag.
