More than 19,000 people attended the 2017 SGIA Expo in mid-October at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans. The show featured nearly 600 exhibitors showcasing the most innovative technologies and products in the printing marketplace.

“The Expo is always exciting, and not just because it’s the largest printing show in North America,” said SGIA President and CEO Ford Bowers. “It’s where you go to see and learn about the evolution of the print industry.”

In addition to the technology demos, buying opportunities and product launches at the Expo this year, many announcements were made, not the least of which was the new Print United show to be held in Dallas in 2019, a joint venture between SGIA and NAPCO Media.

“Print United sets the stage for the sectors that are moving more and more into the SGIA orbit,” Bowers said.

Having its origins in the screen printing industry, SGIA is a trade association for professionals in the industrial, graphic, garment, textile, electronics, packaging and commercial printing communities looking to grow their business into new market segments through the incorporation of the latest printing technologies. The 2018 SGIA Expo will take place Oct. 18-20 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
