CHICAGO—March 12, 2015—GPA is pleased to announce a successful showing at DscoopX, held in Washington, DC, from March 5-7 with a sold-out audience. Celebrating its 75th anniversary, GPA delivered on its call to action and campaign for the year: “It’s a Celebration – Let’s Make Some Noise!” GPA celebrated its combined accomplishments with customers throughout the conference, introducing them to new solutions that can help them continue to create profitable results for years to come. GPA’s entire sales force and members of the management and operations teams were in attendance to strengthen relationships with customers and introduce new contacts to the powerful combination of products, people and support that is unique to GPA.
As a Dscoop Diamond Partner, GPA was actively involved in all aspects of DscoopX, from serving as the exclusive sponsor of the opening reception, being the primary substrate contributor for the conference guide, to presenting their Diamond Partner Session “CHALANT - Leading with a Driving Purpose” to a full house. GPA was also a Supporting Partner of the Operations Team Building and Networking Session, during which GPA helped to build bicycles to benefit the Boys and Girls Club.
Throughout DscoopX, GPA featured its most comprehensive collection to-date of papers, pressure sensitive papers and synthetic substrates that complements HP Indigo small-format and 10000 presses, in addition to toner digital and wide-format press technology. GPA also showcased new ways to use traditional and non-traditional digital substrates to create profitable applications to help attendees differentiate their businesses and create profitable growth.
GPA’s two newest products were popular with visitors during the conference: Ultra Digital 80# Translucent Paper and Ultra Print 130# Cover Papers, in addition to its Ultra Digital Heat Transfer Paper which was used to create commemorative t-shirts right in front of GPA’s guests at DscoopX.
GPA and Zünd teamed up again to demonstrate the unlimited potential of pairing high-quality substrates with innovative cutting technology. During the show, Zünd ran live demonstrations with their new equipment on GPA’s Ultra Digital 12 pt. White Matte C1S Board and produced samples that featured the board’s superior finishing and converting characteristics.
