Xeikon Sets Its Sights on PRINT United in 2019
Eede, The Netherlands, Itasca, Ill. and Philadelphia — Jan. 16, 2018 — After careful evaluation of the trade shows in the graphic and visual communication markets, Xeikon has decided to join the growing list of leading suppliers planning to exhibit at PRINT United (Dallas, Texas, October 23-25, 2019).
PRINT United, a joint venture of the Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA) and NAPCO Media, builds upon the strength and reputation of SGIA Expo, the industry’s premier showcase for graphic and visual communications. It will offer a new platform for vendors to connect with print providers from all segments of the print industry.
“Xeikon North America is excited about the potential synergies PRINT United brings to the marketplace for industry-leading companies like ours to connect with print service providers and their customers,” says Donna Covannon, Director, Marketing NA, Digital Solutions, Xeikon North America.
“PRINT United will enable a platform for vendors to effectively manage their marketing spend” she continues “The good news is that there are even more touch points available for vendors and print service providers as well as creative marketing firms. However, that often means challenges to cover all events. PRINT United offers a powerful venue connecting all the right companies to share their stories.”
PRINT United lets Xeikon maximize its marketing spend and coverage while connecting and engaging on a deeper level with the attendees. “PRINT United will offer our current customers an opportunity to save time and money with one venue that serves their needs. A one-stop, if you will, to connect with vendors across the print service provider spectrum — for vendors, suppliers, clients and industry experts,” says Covannon.
