IPMA Members Converge at PRINTING United Expo
When PRINTING United Expo 2022, the largest, most comprehensive gathering for printers, returned in-person at the Las Vegas Convention Center on Oct. 19-21, the In-plant Printing and Mailing Association’s booth was a gathering place and resource for IPMA members and in-plant attendees.
To enhance the networking opportunities, IPMA held a happy hour that was heavily attended by IPMA members and IPMA suppliers. Sponsored by Ricoh, the festive event featured a special drink menu.
In addition, IPMA Executive Director Mike Loyd opened PRINTING United’s In-plant Forum and vendor in-plant special presentations.
“It was really encouraging to see so many in-plants at Printing United. Both In-plant Impressions’ In-Plant Forum and IPMA’s happy hour were jam packed,” observed Loyd. “After being on lockdown for so long, printers and vendors were happy to be together once more. The show was very well done and offered the latest and greatest in equipment, software and education.”
Founded in 1964, the In-Plant Printing and Mailing Association (IPMA) is the only professional association dedicated exclusively to meeting the needs of all segments’ in-house printers and mailers. The nearly-700 members of IPMA are managers and directors from in-plant printing and mailing facilities throughout the United States. IPMA is headquartered in Kearney, Missouri.
