Next week we have a large crew headed to participate at the Specialty Graphics Imaging Association (SGIA) EXPO 2013 in Orlando. Our trade show teams have been hard at work to make sure all our visitors have an Extraordinary Customer Experience. That includes the chance to heat print your own t-shirt, watch live how-to presentations in our booth-theater and have every question you ever had about heat printing answered. If you see me in the booth, please come over and say hello or ask me anything you would like to know. I’d really like to hear about your business and your plans for the future. We’re in a great location, booth 228. The EXPO has a great interactive floorplan online that lets you plan your visit to the show. If you can’t make it, don’t worry, we’ll be reporting everything we see and hear on this blog, on the GroupeSTAHL Facebook page and on the Stahls’ ID Blog. What will you see at the show in general? The SGIA EXPO draws thousands of visitors from around the world. They’re expecting 20,000 to register. And no matter how long you’ve been in the industry, it’s where people go to discover solutions for production problems, or where they go to find new ideas for expanding their service capabilities. It’s a fantastic venue for finding ways that can help you improve the way you run your business and remain competitive. This is the show to go to if you’re thinking about purchasing new equipment. Apparel decoration equipment of all shapes and sizes will be on display and demonstrated. One great thing about the show is that they have also set up several “sales free” zones, where the demonstrations are strictly educational and you can check out new garment printing equipment without feeling pressured to purchase. You can find people from Stahls’ in the Digital Apparel Production Zone and the Screen Printed Apparel Training Zone. There’s still time to register.
