Guest Speakers

We welcome PIA’s Chairman — Jeff Ekstein, along with PIA President and CEO Michael Makin. They will outline how printing companies are succeeding by offering increased ancillary services, including cross-media campaigns and PIA’s value of Print Campaign, which promotes the effectiveness and environmental soundness of our industry.

In the Fall of 2013, the board of directors of BCPIA, along with its counterparts in Saskatchewan and Alberta became a Western Canadian direct affiliate of Printing Industries of America (PIA), the largest graphic arts association in the world. 

The reason for this decision was so that our members would have access to PIA resources and research for their businesses. 

As a result, BCPIA members now have an abundance of additional resources to take advantage

of, from technical information to group buying discounts. This can help improve your company’s bottom-line by keeping you more competitive in today's challenging marketplace. 

As part of this networking event you will have an opportunity to learn first hand how your company can benefit from BCPIA’s membership in PIA.
