sgiaexpo2016-inThe 2016 SGIA Expo taking place in Las Vegas, Nevada, September 14 – 16 is quickly approaching. The event will showcase the latest technologies and applications to enter the specialty imaging marketplace. Attendees will have three days to navigate through hundreds of booths on the sold-out show floor, talk to industry experts face to face, discover new products and experience live equipment demonstrations and samples. Also on the floor will be the Garment Zone, featuring both screen and digital garment decoration, special-effect techniques and interactive solutions. Another popular area will be Educator Row, where post-secondary schools will be showcasing not only their educational programs, but also their students – in other words, your potential future employees.
