As a hardware or software vendor (or both!) in Graphic Arts, it can be challenging to know where the market is going and what users really want. The Ghent Workgroup is a standardization organization in Graphic Arts where vendors and users meet and shape the future of our industry.

What exactly is the Ghent Workgroup?

The GWG is an international standards organization, active internationally in the Graphic Arts sector. Our aim is to create guidelines, best practices, educational material and standards to help all players in the Graphic Arts market. Our members are both on the vendor and on the user side, which gives us a unique view on what is needed.

What are the benefits of being a member?

Early access to upcoming standardization is an important one, as it can help drive the direction of hardware or software development. Visibility through the various marketing efforts of the GWG is another one. But who better to explain than some of our vendor members?

Laurens Leurs - Agfa Graphics

David Van Driessche - callas software

Elli Cloots - EFI

Sound interesting?

You don’t have to make a decision now! Just get in contact with us. We can tell you what is involved from a commitment and financial point of view or we can put you in contact with some of our other members so you can have an open conversation.

Also, you can join two meetings as an observer before making a final decision on becoming a member. That allows you to understand how we work and whether it would be interesting for your association to get involved. (But trust us, if you’re in Graphic Arts, it’ll be interesting!)
