PRINTING United, scheduled to take place Oct. 6-8, 2021 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla., has been cancelled. The PRINTING United Alliance board of directors felt the ability to deliver a successful tradeshow event for all involved became significantly hampered recently with the growing uncertainty and spike in cases resulting from the COVID-19 Delta variant, and its depressing effect on registration and exhibitor participation.

"One of our contributions to the industry is providing a best-in-class tradeshow,” says Mark J. Subers, president, PRINTING United. “In an instance such as this, we set aside our own financial considerations when we cannot be sure that the ROI for the exhibitors and the attendee experience is exceptional. In 2022, we will continue to execute nothing short of an exemplary event experience for all involved."

WOW, it's great to see this magazine still happy and healthy. My father Carl Lock was the publisher back in the '80's-'90's. This photo shows my father would have been 80 years old last year. He passed in June of 2005. I miss that man everyday!

A company that only seeks for it's own financial, economical earnings, excluding its employees advancement , could be mal interpreted , great long term achievement depends on hard workers who day by day hassle and go that extra mile to get the job done, Opening opportunities to become full time, should be offered to employees who love what they do, or that are willing to assist with the company growth.
