ORLANDO, FL—January 8, 2014—Graphics of the Americas Expo & Conference (GOA) today announces that it will host a special Green Roundtable event during the show.

Produced annually by the Printing Association of Florida, and now in its 39th year, GOA will be held February 27-March 1, 2014, at the Miami Beach Convention Center in Miami.
 
A closer look at the current state of environmentally sustainable printing
The Green Roundtable, moderated by Richard Romano, will bring together printing industry manufacturers, print providers, suppliers, and certifying organizations to look at the current state of environmentally sustainable printing.
 
A sample of topics being discussed will include, but is not limited to:

  • Current trends
  • Drivers
  • Barriers
  • Relevant print buyer demands
  • The many definitions of "sustainable"
  • How the industry can combat the false notion that print and paper are inherently harmful to the environment
  • Sustainable resources available for printers and their customers

"Environmental sustainability in printing is an extremely important topic," said George Ryan, GOA president. "The issues, trends and legislation surrounding the industry can be difficult to understand, as information is constantly changing. The Roundtable serves to help printers navigate the latest topics in this space, and is an excellent venue to openly discuss the issues at hand. We invite all show attendees and exhibitors to attend this special event."

Event sponsorship is available, but limited. Those interested in participating as a Green Roundtable sponsor may contact Beth Mendez: beth@flprint.org.
