Inkjet Ready! Agenda Announced 

Inkjet Ready! aims to take the guess work out of investing in production inkjet technology, one of the fastest growing segments in the printing industry. Wednesday, August 9 and Thursday, August 10, log in to a virtual conference experience from the convenience of your home or office to hear from production inkjet experts and six printing companies that have already taken the plunge!

Each hour of the event will begin with a short documentary-style video shot on location in real printing facilities. These videos will tell the story of production inkjet in the words of six business owners who have invested in the technology. An industry expert will present the hour's topic followed by a panel discussion.

Best Workplace in the Americas Reimagined

PIA revealed this week the newly reimagined Best Workplace in the Americas (BWA) recognition program. We're breaking new ground with a redevelopment of the BWA logo, application process, timeline, and award presentation. Along with the new format, an additional Safety Shield designation is also available for those companies who exhibit excellence in environmental, health, and safety areas.

The BWA entries will open Tuesday, September 5, 2017. The entry form will be available on August 7, for review and planning. Last day for entries will be Friday, November 17, 2017. An anonymous panel of human relations professionals from the industry will review applications and make their selections in early December with honorees notified in January 2018. New this year, the Best Workplace in the Americas awards will be presented during a luncheon at the 2018 President’s Conference March 4-6 in San Antonio, Texas. A series of videos describing the new application process will be launched in August 2017. 

For more information about BWA, please contact Adriane Harrison at 412-259-1707 or
