SGIA EXPO Logo

From the Expo floor to the meeting rooms, learning opportunities abound, the 2017 SGIA Expo (New Orleans, October 10–12) is more than a technological wonderland for the printing industry. It’s the place to learn the latest about what’s moving the industry forward — and how to make the most of it to move your career and your business forward.

In addition to its more than 540 exhibitors, the 2017 SGIA Expo features over 40 educational sessions led by industry experts. The sessions fall into four tracks: Graphics and Sign, Garment Decoration, Industrial Imaging and Business Management. You can view a list of sessions by day or by track at SGIAExpo.org.

“This show ... has something on display, as well as great educational sessions, for every segment of our industry,” said an attendee at last year’s SGIA Expo.

You can have it all with the SGIA Expo + Education Pass

You don’t have to choose between the Expo floor and the education sessions at the SGIA Expo. You can have it both ways with an Expo + Education Pass. The pass is free to registered SGIA members; nonmembers pay $99 through September 12 ($115 thereafter).

“The Expo + Education Pass makes education at the Expo flexible and affordable. It opens up all the regular education sessions to attendees,” said Dan Marx, Director of Industry Content, Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA). “Attendees can adjust their educational plans on site, because they’re not required to pre-select sessions.”

The pass does not cover special conferences and events: Wide Format 101, Your Business: Prepare for Success, Printed Electronics Symposium, Wrap Like a Pro Training, SGIA Sustainability Luncheon or Women in Print Alliance Breakfast.

“There are no restrictions on what or where you learn at the SGIA Expo,” Marx said. “Everywhere you turn, there’s an educational opportunity.”

SGIA — Supporting the Leaders of the Digital & Screen Printing Community

Having its origins in the screen printing industry, SGIA embraced the digital revolution early on and is now the trade association of choice for professionals in the industrial, graphic, garment, textile, electronics, packaging and commercial printing communities looking to grow their business into new market segments through the incorporation of the latest printing technologies. SGIA membership comprises these diverse segments, all of which are moving rapidly towards digital adoption. As long-time champions of digital technologies and techniques, SGIA is the community of peers you are looking for to help navigate the challenges of this process. Additionally, the SGIA Expo is the largest trade show for print technology in North America. “Whatever the medium, whatever the message, print is indispensable. Join the community — SGIA.”
