APTech to hold Print Innovation Exchange Leadership Conference on business management and technology

The Association for PRINT Technologies (APTech – Reston, Virginia) has announced that the new PRINT Innovation Exchange, its executive-level leadership and networking event, will be held December 3-5, 2018 at The Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa in Savannah, Georgia. This new approach to APTech’s annual conference will bring together several top printing industry executives, owners and managers to examine industry trends, learn from experts and network with peers. In addition to its two exceptional keynote speakers, APTech is also partnering with the George Mason University-Graduate School of Business to lead its business management education sessions that help industry service providers and suppliers to examine the way they run their businesses, and improve their business management and technology leadership skills. The education sessions will be led by APTech executives Ken Garner (Vice President of Business Development and Industry Relations) and Julie Shaffer (Associate Vice President, Program and Community Development). They’ll bring to the table several distinguished speakers – including leadership development expert Professor Maury Peiperl, Dean of the George Mason University-Graduate School of Business.
