ABOUT President's Conference 2018

Join us at the 2018 President’s Conference, March 4–6 in San Antonio, Texas. This year the focus is “Innovations in Leadership” to explore strategies and resources designed to help you better serve your customers while improving your operational and financial objectives.

In addition to the opportunity to network and learn from industry peers, we also will be honoring Best Workplaces in the Americas (BWA) winners during a luncheon presentation. The BWA and the new Safety Shield program are open to any U.S. or Canadian printer and graphic communications company or supplier to the industry. Winners exemplify print industry excellence in human relations and safety. You can learn full details of the BWA program at

Let’s put innovation at the forefront of leadership excellence.
