Expo 411: Making Connections and Building Industry Knowledge
The PRINTING United Expo — being held Oct. 18-20 in Atlanta — is quickly approaching, and attendees are gearing up for a week of learning, networking, and inspiration. As a lead-up to the Expo, we are sharing a series of Q&A interviews featuring label and packaging converters from a variety of backgrounds sharing why they are attending the PRINTING United Expo, what they hope to learn, and what excites them about the upcoming event.
We will hear from label converters, flexible packaging manufacturers, carton printers, and corrugated packaging manufacturers, and more about how they are using print — and the technology on display at the Expo — to grow their businesses and reach their target audiences.
The PRINTING United Expo is a great opportunity to learn, network, and be inspired by the best minds in the printing industry. We hope you will join us for this exciting event!
