“Durst is proud of our long-term commitment to SGIA,” said Brent Moncrief, VP Sales and Marketing at Durst. “The association is a tremendous source of information for the ever evolving world of commercial imaging, and we find that their focus on the latest innovation aligns very well with our direction as a company. We are honored to be a member and sponsor of SGIA.”

“HP is proud to extend our long-standing relationship with SGIA by sponsoring the 2014 Expo,” said Tom Wittenberg, Americas Sign & Display Marketing Segment Manager at Hewlett Packard. “The SGIA Expo provides an excellent opportunity for HP to share its expanded portfolio of innovative products and gives attendees the opportunity to hear from us and see these products up-close. The show’s networking opportunities have made SGIA truly worthwhile in the past and we look forward to further building those relationships this year.”

“The type of people who attend SGIA every year usually have done this homework. They arrive prepared looking for very specific products to help their business flourish,” said Susie Mendelssohn, North America Sales and International Marketing Manager at INX. “By listening to our customers and obtaining feedback each year at the show, we have experienced success by tailoring our product selections. That’s why the SGIA Expo is an enjoyable event to work and one of the main reasons why we continue our sponsorship.”

Whether you are focused on textile decoration or the latest in digital production and printing, you will find what you need to grow your business at this show.”

Not only are the 2014 Platinum and Gold Sponsors excited to partner with SGIA, but they also have new products and technologies that they are excited to feature on the show floor.

“SGIA Expo is one of the most important North American events for EFI to reach print professionals, as well as a growing number of commercial printing companies looking to expand into the display graphics market,” according to Ken Hanulec, Vice President of Marketing, EFI Inkjet Solutions. “At this year’s show, attendees will see how they can grow their businesses and profitably benefit from the largest portfolio of LED printing systems, superior-quality imaging made possible with our new 7 pico liter grayscale UltraDrop Technology, the latest advancements in material handling and automation, and our complete, end-to-end inkjet workflow offering on display.”
