Monday, July 15, 2019

Press release from the issuing company

The Event Has Been Totally Revitalized and Will Be Held in a Private Club on Park Avenue

New York, N.Y. –  Printing Industries Alliance today announced that the 68th Franklin Event will be held in New York City on Thursday, June 4th, 2020. The event’s new venue will be the prestigious Club 101, a private club located in the iconic Kalikow Building located on Park Avenue at the corner of 40th Street.

Tim Freeman, President of the Printing Industries Alliance commented that, “we will change things that can be made better, retain things that work and add some new things. The event will return to a 100% focus on our print industry and proceeds will go to the Print Drives America Foundation that is the champion and cheerleader for the national print industry.”

Marty Maloney, Executive Vice President of the Printing Industries Alliance added “the Franklin Event is being completely reinvented from top to bottom including venue, season, format, awards, focus, media partner and committee. We are going from the West Side Highway to Park Avenue, from fall to spring, from cocktail party to sit-down dinner. We are adding some awards, designating a media partner and forming a new committee. The enhanced Franklin Event will truly be an elegant way to celebrate the printing industry.”

Sponsorships will be kept at the same cost as in the past. Platinum Sponsorships are available now at a 20% discount if committed now and paid by November 15th, 2019. A Platinum Sponsorship includes a table of ten and a seat on the committee. Call or email Marty Maloney to add your name to the sponsor’s list m.maloney@pialliance.org, 203 912 0804. Future news releases will continue to provide details for the 2020 Franklin Event which promises to be our best event ever.

About the Franklin Event
PIA affiliates of the greater New York/ New Jersey geographic footprint have presented the Annual Franklin Event for 67 years, since 1952. During that time period a wide variety of national and industry dignitaries have received well-earned recognition during the event. From 2014 to 2018 the Franklin Luminaire event was co- sponsored with Idealliance. During that time period, the sponsoring organizations combined to produce successful events each year, at a time when many comparable programs within the graphic communications industry were struggling, and generated thousands of dollars to support industry scholarship efforts as well as related charitable causes. Going forward, Franklin Event proceeds will be earmarked solely to support the PRINT DRIVES AMERICA FOUNDATION, an organization developed to give PRINT a stronger voice, increase PRINT’s dominant market share, highlight its effectiveness and ROI, and enhance its positive perception. In May of 2020 the event returns to a 100% Printing Industries Alliance sponsored Franklin Event.
