National Print Owners Association (NPOA)

Print Owners Announce "Spring Break 2014" Conference

The Second Annual NPOA Owners Conference will be held in conjunction with Graphics of the Americas (GOA) which is sponsored annually by the Printing Association of Florida (PAF).

“GOA is the country's largest trade show dedicated specifically to the small format printing industry.” says John Henry, NPOA Director of Programs and Events. “NPOA plans to work closely with PAF in order to allow our conference attendees to make their visit to Florida a true ‘Win-Win’ situation by blending member oriented seminars and presentations with the unique opportunity to take a break and visit a major trade show dedicated to our end of the industry.”

Adds NPOA President Jace Prejean: “Although early in our planning schedule, NPOA has arranged with PAF for FREE VIP passes to daily GOA seminar events, plus a free shuttle service between our own headquarters hotel and the Miami Beach Convention Center where GOA will be held. This gives conference attendees an ideal opportunity to attend great educational sessions, mix and mingle with their peers, and visit a trade show catering to the smaller format printer.”

Three NPOA members have volunteered to act as co-chairs of “Spring Break 2014.” They are: Gerry Engelhart, Porath Printsource, Cleveland, OH; Michelle Maynor, Interior Graphics & Printing, Fairbanks, AK; and Dave Monto, Dutchess ProPrint, Wappinger Falls, NY.

More details, including seminar descriptions and conference scheduling, will be announced as they are finalized. A call for speakers will be distributed in mid-August.
