A New Day
If only more marriages could last this long. This June marks Midlothian, Texas-based Ennis' 50th anniversary as a member of the Print Services & Distribution Association (PSDA), an international organization aimed at helping the print community succeed since 1946.
These companies and the scores of others that belong to the organization find it to be an excellent tool that allows them to rub elbows with other industry professionals, keep clients and boost sales. And, with the upcoming 2011 Print Solutions Conference and Expo in Chicago less than two months away (May 17 through May 19) these companies look forward to things only getting better. Some hope that will come with the changes PSDA made last year—the organization hired private company SmithBucklin to take over and pledged more support to its membership including a boosted training and education program.
Many anticipate how these changes will influence the upcoming show.
"I will be attending the conference in addition to the tradeshow," Ennis Marketing Director Steve Osterloh said. "I'm looking forward to the first Print Solutions show planned 100 percent by the new management team. I'm excited to hear the messages they will be sending the membership through their education programs."
Identity Group | Business Stationery, corporate headquarters located in Cookeville, Tenn. and a member of the PSDA since 2005, is exhibiting at the show with the hope that the new management team will "deliver on a first-class event," stated Mark Cupach, director, national sales.
"We will do our part in delivering effective communications to our customers and prospects about attending this conference and how it will positively affect their businesses. We will partner with the new PSDA management team to make this a 'can't miss' event for the future," he continued.
