Momentum from SGIA Expo 2018 Will Carry Canon Solutions America to PRINTING United in 2019
MELVILLE, NY — September 26, 2018 — “Over the years, SGIA Expo has become the largest North American show for large format digital printing solutions,” says Sal Sheikh, vice president, Marketing, Large Format Solutions, Canon Solutions America. “Customers come to see and evaluate manufacturers’ offerings, and often sign orders on the spot.” Sheikh notes that Canon Solutions America has always done well in that respect at SGIA Expo – and hopes to achieve the same result at its successor, PRINTING United (Dallas, Texas, October 23-25, 2019).
Canon Solutions America, a steadfast supporter of print industry trade shows, sees the events as opportunities “to put more pages on Canon devices,” says Eric Hawkinson, vice president, Marketing, Production Print Solutions. He points out that the company is an “early adopter” and is also a sponsor of BRAND United, an initiative that aims to create a unified brand experience for brand owners, marketers, and other graphic media professionals at the PRINTING United Expo next year.
PRINTING United is a joint venture of the Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA) and NAPCO Media. It will carry on and expand the mission of SGIA Expo, the industry’s premier showcase for graphic and visual communications. Following SGIA’s final edition (Las Vegas, October 18-20, 2018), PRINTING United will present a new perspective on profiting in segments from garment to graphic, packaging to commercial, and industrial to in-plant.
Sheikh says that PRINTING United should give Canon Solutions America an appropriate venue for positioning itself as a leader in digital printing, particularly on the inkjet side. The company offers market-leading solutions both for wide-format applications and for commercial production, he notes.
