“The industry is ready to gather once again, and the time has finally arrived,” says Mark J. Subers, president, Printing United. “Since the launch of Printing United Expo in 2019, through to the Printing United Digital Experience, and now at the doorstep of this year’s event, we have been talking to industry leaders and partners the entire way to understand how these events can best serve them. While virtual events kept us going during the past challenging year, the feedback we continue to hear is that people want, and really need, to be together to begin getting back to business. In fact, according to a recent study conducted by Association Insights, 94.7 percent of respondents indicated that large industry trade shows are important, or essential.
“Companies have continued to develop products and technology since the pandemic began, and they are waiting to finally showcase what’s been going on live at Printing United Expo. With so many updates, we want to be sure all Printing industry professionals have the opportunity to see and hear it all. From Expo Preview to Expo Live to Expo Wrap-Up, we’re working to equip the industry with the most up-to-the-minute education, technology launches, and opportunities to connect; and then revisit all these areas after the show to ensure attendees haven’t missed anything. We could not be happier to welcome the industry back together again safely in October at Printing United Expo.”
