Inaugural Printing United tradeshow sold out

The Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA) has announced that the show floor of its first-ever Printing United tradeshow is now sold out. The event is being held October 23 – 25, in Dallas, Texas. Over 650 exhibitors occupying 720,000 square feet of the expansive Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center, will feature the latest printing technology in the marketplace. Printing United was built upon the foundation of the original SGIA Expo, answering the need for next-generation exhibition and educational programming for the printing industry.

“The industry has asked, and we’re delivering,” said Ford Bowers, CEO and President at SGIA. “In 2017, when SGIA and NAPCO came together with a vision to meet the widespread need for an invigorated tradeshow and educational format to address the convergence of industry verticals, we immediately got to work. The fact that we’re sold out of our exhibitor booth space in our inaugural year is a testament to our idea of bringing together all printing disciplines under one roof. We couldn’t be more thrilled to open our doors on October 23 for attendees to experience this next-level offering first-hand.”

Attendees will see major OEMs in action showcasing their latest technology. Ricoh, Konica Minolta, Canon, M&R, Roland DGA, OmniPrint International, HP, Heidelberg, Fujifilm, Agfa, Durst, EFI, Mimaki, Stahls’, MindFire, S-One, Ultraflex Systems and other industry leaders will be revealing an array of new technology, with some debuting at the show. A few sponsorship opportunities are still available. Those companies interested in further highlighting their presence at the show can contact SGIA VP of Sales John Woodstock for more details and pricing. Also, as booth allocation and availability may shift up to show opening, companies still interested in participating in this year’s show may be placed onto a waiting list, or reserve space for Printing United 2020 in Atlanta, Georgia, by also contacting him.
