“PRINTING United Expo 2019 was the dawn of a new era for the printing and graphic arts industry,” said Mark J. Subers, President, PRINTING United Expo. “This award really should be given to the industry at large and those exhibiting companies and show attendees that saw the clear value in coming together under one roof with a likeminded mission in learning about new, cutting edge technology, industry trends, networking and for those basically looking for a place to call home, and for making this event a reality.
