Franklin Event Set For September

Printing Industries Alliance (PIA) scheduled its annual Franklin Event for Wednesday, Sept. 29 (5:30-10 p.m.) at Pier Sixty at Chelsea Piers, New York City.

The popular gala—attended last year by more than 500 chief executive officers and senior executive decision makers from the printing, publishing, advertising and graphic arts sectors and sponsored by 33 companies—will feature recipients for a Franklin Award for Distinguished Service, Power of Communications Awards and a John Peter Zenger Medal. The names of this year’s honorees will be announced shortly.
