Description

Join us in Cincinnati for this year’s SGP 2018 Community Day!

Community Day: Where Sustainability Meets Print is the Sustainable Green Printing Partnership (SGP)’s premier annual conference for thought leaders in the sustainable printing industry. The event brings together printers, suppliers and Fortune 500 brands to advance sustainability in the graphic communications industry. Through focused roundtable discussions and networking opportunities, the event creates a community of practice that allows participants to connect, learn and build a new future for print.

This year’s event coincides with SGP’s 10th anniversary. As such, we are thrilled to invite all SGP members and VIP guests to attend a networking gala and dinner to celebrate our accomplishments. SGP Community members include SGP Applicants, SGP Patrons (number depends on level), SGP Printers, SGP Brand Leaders and Print Buyers, and SGP Resource Partners. While the 10th anniversary gala is by invitation only, members of the public are encouraged to attend the day-long conference.
