The 2014 SGIA Expo Has Just the Wide Stuff to Get the Job Done

Specialty imaging’s wide-format community has never seen a show quite like the 2014 SGIA Expo (Las Vegas, October 22–24). When we say everything goes, and anything is possible, we mean it. From the sold-out show floor to the expert-led classic education sessions, and the exclusive Zones to the networking receptions and beyond, attendees will leave armed with the knowledge and know-how to elevate their imaging businesses.

The opportunities for education at the Expo are boundless.

Attend a half-day Workshop the day before the show opens: “Wide-Format 101.” Taught in four parts, this course is designed to help you understand today’s expanding wide-format inkjet opportunity, and gain valuable strategies to help you make the best decisions for your business — a bit of “basic training” to help prepare you for what’s to come.

Visit the sold-out trade show floor first thing Wednesday, where more than 500 exhibitors will showcase the latest imaging techniques, newest technologies and cutting-edge industry applications. And, hey, while you’re there, take in a free presentation at the Color Management & Workflow Solutions Zone, the Digital Textile Printing Zone or the Sustainability Zone. These no-sales-allowed areas promise nothing but imaging info overload (in a good way)!

Venture off the show floor (It will still be there, we promise.) for one of SGIA’s classic educational sessions. They’re presented by industry leading experts, on topics that matter to you, the wide-format imager:

  • Connecting Web-Based Workflows
  • Factors Impacting Your Wide-Format Bottom Line
  • Interior Office Graphics: A Great Opportunity
  • Graphic Technologies to Expand Your Marketplace
  • Taking the Step from Static to Dynamic

Your breakfast plans on Thursday morning have been made for you. Join keynoter Stephen Shapiro for “Innovate Where You Differentiate,” and discover why it is unwise to ask for ideas. Learn how to define challenges more clearly, and how to get better answers by asking better questions.

And no Expo experience is complete without a little networking. Chat with your colleagues, clients and potential customers on Reception Row before you hit the Strip. Seven community-building receptions ensure you’ll find a like mind, and a drink. Attendance is by invitation only.
