The PRINTING United Expo and tradeshow is officially set for the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, October 21-23, 2020. With health and safety guidelines at the forefront of planning, the annual industry showcase will give attendees and exhibitors the opportunity to engage and see the latest industry technology, experience worldwide product debuts, and participate in educational programs that will equip companies and shop owners with the latest statistics and powerful resources for 2021 and beyond.
“The PRINTING United Alliance (Fairfax, Virginia), organizer of the PRINTING United Expo, continues to be committed in helping the printing industry navigate the COVID-19 pandemic,” said organizers. The Alliance, formed May 1 from the merger of the SGIA and the PIA, has developed several ‘go-to’ resources for the printing industry – including a comprehensive COVID-19 Resource Channel, a dedicated COVID-19: Ask the Experts webinar series, the latest in financial and legislative support, and resources for re-opening businesses.
“Building on this body of knowledge and experience, the PRINTING United Expo is the next step in helping the industry re-open its businesses and plan for the future,” it added. “Key indicators suggest the economy will grow robustly in 2021, giving the printing industry a big boost,” said Andy Paparozzi, Chief Economist at the PRINTING United Alliance. “PRINTING United’s unparalleled networking and educational opportunities will prepare attendees to participate fully in the upturn ahead.”
Mark Subers, President of PRINTING United, added: “The support and desire from the industry to come together again after such an unanticipated interruption in business this year has been overwhelming. PRINTING United has become the venue in 2020 to assist business operations in not just sustaining but helping that upward trajectory for future success. We have and will continue to survey our past constituents on their interest and ability to be at the show and are preparing accordingly.”
Organizers added that PRINTING United exhibitors are using this first chance for the industry to be together under one roof to reunite and reset, while viewing products and technology that vendors and OEMs have been waiting all year to launch. Special educational sessions have also been added from industry analysts and consultants to help put companies that are reopening on the right track for planning next year. “From commercial to industrial, and packaging to apparel, leading companies from all industry segments have signed on to exhibit at PRINTING United 2020, with many expanding booth space to accommodate even more technology to be shown.”
