Alliance Speakers Bureau

PRINTING United Alliance is the new entity borne of the merger between Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA) and Printing Industries of America (PIA). In a milestone in the printing industry, on May 1, 2020, SGIA and PIA officially combined to create the largest, most comprehensive member-based printing and graphic arts association in the United States.

The printing industry and Alliance members have unparalleled access to preeminent education, training, workshops, events, research, government and legislative representation, safety and environmental sustainability guidance, as well as resources from the leading media company in the industry – NAPCO Media. These resources are led by some of the foremost subject matter experts and leaders in the industry, many of whom are PRINTING United Alliance employees.

Many of our employees are renowned industry veterans who are frequently asked to speak at conferences and events around the world, as it pertains to each of their respective subject matter expertise.
