Business Management – Convergence
Morten B. Reitoft, editor of INKISH.TV, explains why PRINTING United — taking place Oct. 23-25 in Dallas — is the premier print trade show taking place in the U.S. in 2019.
In 2017, SGIA and NAPCO Media formed a strategic partnership to create a global platform to connect print service providers and suppliers with the launch of PRINTING United in 2019. Under the terms of the acquisition agreement, NAPCO Media, owner of Packaging Impressions, will become an LLC and will continue to operate as an independent entity. All NAPCO Media staff and business units will remain in place.
As VP of public relations for SGIA, Amanda Kliegl will work to further awareness about the extensive resources and offerings that SGIA provides to members and the industry as a whole. She will be especially focused on communications efforts surrounding PRINTING United, the groundbreaking new trade show built upon the robust foundation of the SGIA Expo.
