GASC and ISA Partner to Go “Big” at PRINT 13 and Beyond

“This alliance will enhance the learning opportunities at PRINT 13, allowing attendees access to new applications and technologies while strengthening their networks,” said David Murphy, director of marketing, Americas, Graphics Solutions Business, HP. “HP Graphics Solutions Business customers realize the value digital printing offers in a broad range of market segments, and we are excited to see ISA and GASC/NPES partner to offer a multi-segment venue.”

“EFI offers diverse business transformation technologies. These range from MIS Software to wide-format inkjet printers and label printing to our Fiery product offerings. An ISA – GASC/NPES collaboration is brilliant adding more value for our customers and prospects that are continuing to improve or transform their business by giving them more reason to come to ISA and PRINT 13, two important events for our industry in two easy to reach destinations,” noted Frank Tueckmantel, EFI’s vice president corporate marketing.

Adds Mal Balboyian, executive vice president, Canon/Oce Business Systems: “This partnership makes sense. Each organization has different communities and value propositions. Together the benefits and value to attendees and suppliers alike should equal more than the sum of its parts, much like Canon and Oce.”

“With our combined AGFA and Pitman solutions and strategy, we see the partnership between ISA and GASC as smart and even more valuable,” explained AGFA Pitman’s Director of Marketing Deborah Hutcheson. “This partnership creates great networking events, driving more customers and prospects to each show and educating attendees on the latest technologies and applications.”

We are excited about the GASC/ISA partnership.” “Likewise we are pleased about the co-location of the CPP EXPO package printing/converting show at PRINT 13.
