Who Attends

Exhibitors come from many different areas within the print industry. If you’re interested in any of these categories, then PRINT is for you.

The companies doing well in our industry are the ones coming up with innovative products designed to meet the needs of our customers in today's fast-paced digital world. These are the companies that are looking forward to the future, to the way things have to be. And they're thriving.

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 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.
