APTech and Tarsus Join Forces

Tarsus Group (owner and organizer of the Labelexpo and Brand Print Global Series of trade shows) and the Association for PRINT Technologies (owner and organizer of the PRINT® event) have today announced that they will combine efforts to launch Brand Print Americas. This will take place in lieu of PRINT® 2020 and will be co-located with the 2020 edition of Labelexpo Americas, happening at the Donald E Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL, from September 15-17.


Warning: Convergence Area Ahead!

You may be hearing a lot about “convergence” these days. To converge means to arrive at the same point from different directions. It’s a theory being bandied about by certain people in the print industry who are not sure how to remain in the print industry. So, they’ve resorted to a herd mentality.

What is Print?

Heralding a bold new mission to drive Printing Industry growth, the Association for PRINT Technologies (APTech), formerly NPES, has a new identity that is both a nod to the Association’s signature annual event—PRINT®—which it has produced since 1968, and marks a defining moment in the Association’s 85-year history. Additionally, the new name signifies progress toward completion of its Strategic Business Plan for the Industry, which launched in January 2017.
