Quark begins its “QuarkXPress 8 Xperience Design Global Tour” on June 24th, with stops in more than 50 cities across North America, Europe, and Asia. Remarkably, the first event is being held in their Denver headquarters.
I don’t recall Quark ever allowing the general public into their headquarters. In fact, security is as tight as you might imagine in a top-tier software development company. So symbolically, this is a Big Deal.
If you’ll be in the Denver area on June 24th from 4pm to 8pm, you can register for the event at this Web page. Here’s what you can expect to Xperience (sorry, couldn’t resist):
Join us at this premiere event where you will see QuarkXPress 8 in action, meet members of our leadership team and our product experts, and be the first to take QuarkXPress 8 on a test drive in our training room.
