In-plants Meet in Phoenix
Last week in Phoenix, the In-plant Printing and Mailing Association (IPMA) held its seventh of eight Road Show events planned for 2023. It was hosted by Deer Valley Unified School District and drew 15 attendees from companies like Salt River Project and Alliance Defending Freedom.
Martin James, manager of Print Services at Deer Valley USD welcomed his in-plant peers, and then Denis Griff of Canon Solutions America gave a presentation on how in-plants can diversity to drive business growth. He was followed by Ricoh’s Ken Tucker with a presentation on “How to Fast Track Your Success for 2024.” A final session covered promotional product sales.
Attendees also visited vendor displays and enjoyed lunch. The day was capped by a tour of the in-plant.
The next and final IPMA Road Show will take place next week on Nov. 7 in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, hosted by Messiah University. IPI Editor Bob Neubauer will attend and offer a recap of the recent PRINTING United Expo.
