This year’s Doxnet conference and exhibition, held from June 17th to 19th in Baden Baden, Germany, was remarkable for two reasons: strong attendance and a focus on Enterprise Content Management (ECM). Doxnet (www.doxnet.eu) is a not-for-profit association for document experts and companies active in document management – usually for mission critical documents and traditionally with a focus on print output. The geographic focus is on German speaking countries and for obvious reasons the majority of members come from Germany with smaller shares from Austria and Switzerland. The event had 613 attendees pre-registered from a total of 218 companies, setting a new record attendance. The exhibition hall had strong representation from manufacturers of inserting equipment, but less so for printing system manufacturers, with only Canon/Océ, Pitney Bowes, and Ricoh exhibiting. There was also a strong showing in the area of electronic document solutions from software to service providers for electronic alternatives to printed statements.
