Celebrate PRINT!

American Red Cross Blood Drive

CMYK Blood dropsLet’s roll up our sleeves and see if the print industry really does bleed CMYK. For the past few years APTech has incorporated philanthropy into our PRINT event and this year at PRINT®19 we are proud to partner with the American Red Cross to hold a blood drive.

The Red Cross has over 130 years of experience providing humanitarian aid—including more than 70 years of supplying blood to those in need.

Each pint of blood we collect can help save up to three lives and will touch the lives of so many more. What a great way to pay it forward and make an impact on people in our community and across the country.

The blood drive will take place on Friday, October 4 in Booth 2843 on the exhibit floor. Sign up to donate here.

And don’t forget to share on social media and tag #PRINT19 and #thePRINTevent to spread the word.



Red Hot Technology Program Awards

With hundreds of booths to visit, it can be challenging to see all of the new and innovative products on display. The RED HOT Technology Recognition Program highlights technology and solutions that have come to market within the past 12 months.

Check out the Onsite Event Guide to find out which products and vendors have been recognized as part of the program. All products that have been recognized will have a special plaque for easy identification.

Each RED HOT product is eligible to receive a Vanguard Award. These awards are granted based on a product's merit as a game-changer in the industry.
