One goal was to communicate to people outside the printing industry about how vast print is. From jerseys and banners to food packaging and tickets, printed products cover sports facilities from the parking lot to the field.
Another goal was to promote the relevance and importance of SGP to printers, print buyers, and those who support the print industry in any other way. This was accomplished both by speaking with people one on one at the booth as well as through the Cleaner& Greener: Responsible Procurement panel Gary was a part of on day two. During this panel, Gary discussed responsible procurement of printed products and the importance of utilizing printers with a sustainable process and facility. Many attendees are parts of companies that strive to make a positive impact on the supply chain but never considered doing so by supporting sustainable printers. Others, with similar passions of being green, did their own printing in house and became interested in the certification as well.
Overall, the 2019 Green Sports Alliance Summit was a success for SGP. We can’t wait to go back in 2020!
