Registration for PRINTING United Open


Staff member
Registration is now open for PRINTING United—Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center—Dallas, October 23 through 25, 2019.

PRINTING United is a new event from SGIA & NAPCO that is intended to serve several markets, including apparel, production graphics, installation and several vertical printing segments: functional, commercial, packaging and in-plant. An expansive show floor will offer a comprehensive view of the latest printing technologies, and features a 4,000-Sq.’ exhibit—The Experience Zone—with over 100 applications, demonstrating how printing shapes consumers’ lives.

According to show management, more than 570 suppliers have committed to exhibit, bringing the show floor space to 93% sold. A Fall 2018 SGIA / NAPCO Research survey indicated that 80% of those surveyed, believed a consolidated printing industry event would better serve them than single-segment events.

Rounding out PRINTING United, there’s a 96-session conference program, with sessions on apparel, commercial, functional, graphics, packaging and in-plant printing, with topics ranging from technology to business operations. Intensive pre-event workshops on October 22 will focus on:
  • Starting a wide-format graphics business,
  • Digital textile printing, and
  • Convergence opportunities.
Opening Night features a “Work hard & play hard!” party at iconic Gilley’s Dallas on October 23.
