Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA)

SGIA Expo Awarded for 'Most Dramatic Growth' in 2010

The 2010 SGIA Expo was recognized as the 'Show with the Most Dramatic Growth' at Trade Show Executive's Gold 100 Awards and Summit in Half Moon Bay, CA. The award highlights the strength of the SGIA community, which has powered through recent challenging economical times by its adoption of innovative technologies and long history with key customers.

"The SGIA community excels at finding profitable opportunities and SGIA Expo exhibitors are delivering new technologies that help imagers do a great job of meeting the changing needs of their customers," said SGIA's President and CEO, Michael Robertson. "The strength of the SGIA community draws attendees from other print sectors eager for added revenue streams. More than 30 percent of registrants are first-time attendees."

Through its expansive trade show floor, co-location partnerships, educational Zones and networking receptions, the SGIA Expo provides the tools and knowledge for the specialty imaging community to stay ahead of industry trends. In addition, the Expo is the best marketplace for manufacturers, suppliers and distributors to meet face-to-face with the attendees who will use the emerging technologies they provide.

The honor was one of Trade Show Executive's grand awards recognizing the 100 largest 2010 tradeshows that set the "gold standard." The 2011 SGIA Expo will open in just less than a month at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, October 19-21, and the line-up of events, exhibitors and featured Expo-floor attractions is set to impress.
