SCREEN Americas Joins PRINTING United User Experience to Launch New SCREEN User’s Group

PRINTING United User Experience provides customizable, fully-planned “white glove service” meeting packages to industry groups reuniting at PRINTING United Expo in Las Vegas this October 

Fairfax, Va. — PRINTING United User Experience (PRINTING United UX), a comprehensive, white glove event experience powered by PRINTING United Expo, today announced that SCREEN Americas has joined the meeting venue being held just prior to PRINTING United in Las Vegas. PRINTING United Expo takes place October 19-21, 2022, at the Las Vegas Convention Center where the industry will reunite for the first time collectively across all segments together under one roof. PRINTING United UX was created to provide a customized setting for any sized industry OEM, group, and association, to reconnect and restart long-awaited conversations, training, business, and future planning.

“SCREEN Americas immediately saw the value in tapping into the PRINTING United UX platform as a premier venue where we can highlight some of our latest developments with our new SCREEN Executive Customer Council (ECC) and our SCREEN User Group,” says Mark Schlimme, VP of Marketing for SCREEN Americas. “During our fully supported event at PRINTING United, SCREEN and our ECC will further share information about our joint mission to facilitate connection between SCREEN Americas, our customers, and SCREEN GA in Japan. 

“The ECC will further serve as the foundation and directing force to provide value for the SCREEN User Group. SCREEN will facilitate and provide content for the User Group, as we see tremendous value for our customers in the strong SCREEN customer community. This special meeting will bring together the shared commitment of SCREEN and our ECC to provide value for everyone.” 

The SCREEN ECC is represented by some of SCREEN’s largest, and longest-standing, customers in North America, with plans to expand to SCREEN Europe and other subsidiaries in the future. The first in-person ECC meeting is scheduled for the second half of August in Elk Grove Village, IL, with this next session to follow at PRINTING United Expo. Dave Johannes, Executive VP, Strategic Initiatives for Moore Direct, will serve as the Council’s first president. 

Tapping into PRINTING United Expo UX’s Added Value
The PRINTING United UX platform features a three-tiered model allowing companies to focus on reconnecting at PRINTING United Expo while experts plan a complete packaged meeting to suit each group’s individual needs. This platform provides “white glove” event management service by covering event logistics such as: securing dynamic speakers targeted towards each unique group; all necessary A/V; entertainment; food and beverage; transportation; event space; and more, so that organizations like SCREEN can focus on its meeting content and attendees.

One particularly attractive part of the PRINTING United UX program is that it provides VIP access to the PRINTING United Expo show floor on opening day before official show hours, allowing those participating in the special event to explore the technologies before the doors open to the regular attendees. 

“We welcome the opportunity to work with SCREEN in making their meeting a successful one by providing the white glove experience the UX platform is all about,” says Frank Tueckmantel, EVP, Business Development, NAPCO Media. “Our partnership allows the team at Screen to fully focus on the content and their esteemed guests, while the UX team addresses all the event planning details needed to allow attendees to enjoy a flawless meeting experience.”
