PIA and SGIA Launch 2018 Conference and Event Partnership

Conferences will tackle issues common across the printing industry

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and Fairfax, Virginia — Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA) President & CEO Ford Bowers will launch “Color 2018,” the first in a series of conferences jointly presented by Printing Industries of America (PIA) and SGIA.

While this is the first formal agreement between the two organizations, the arrangement builds on a long history of collaboration on programming, including the Continuous Improvement Conference and legislative activities.

“We have successfully partnered with SGIA for years on joint regulatory efforts and on other programming. We are thrilled to extend this partnership going forward,” noted Michael Makin, PIA President and CEO.

Under the agreement, PIA and SGIA will present the following conferences in 2018:

  • Color 2018 — January 13–16, 2018, San Diego
    http://cmc.printing.org
  • President’s Conference — March 3–7, San Antonio
    http://www.presidentsconference.com
  • The 70th Annual TAGA Technical Conference — March 18–21, Baltimore
    http://tagaatc.printing.org
  • Continuous Improvement Conference — April 8–11, Chicago
    http://ci.printing.org

“This partnership is equally advantageous to SGIA and PIA members. Where our constituencies were, at one time, very distinct, the printing industry is being shaped by the convergence of technologies and markets. With this series of conferences, we’ll be addressing important common issues,” said Bowers.
