Answers and solutions to the industry’s foremost management and production challenges form the cornerstone of SGIA ’02, the 54th annual Convention & Exposition of the Screenprinting & Graphic Imaging Association International, set for October 30-November 2 at the America’s Center in downtown St. Louis, Missouri, USA. Acclaimed as the number one Beatles show in the world, SGIA’s Convention entertainment features "1964: The Tribute."

SGIA ’02 is the world’s largest annual show featuring the latest imaging technologies – screen printing, digital imaging, embossing, embroidery, hot stamping, and others – for producing a wide range of products: textiles, graphics, point-of-purchase, decals, outdoor advertising, transit advertising, fleet & vehicle graphics, advertising specialties, fine art, garments, containers and bottles, glass and ceramics, circuitry, membrane switches, nameplates, sportswear, compact discs and environmental graphics, among others.

In conjunction with the DPI Conference-St. Louis, sponsored by the Digital Printing & Imaging Association, the extensive SGIA ’02 educational program focuses on the use of imaging technologies for textile, graphics and industrial applications.

DPI’s Conference will address the latest developments in digital imaging for graphics, as well as for textiles, for higher-end digital technology users. Both SGIA and DPI programming include timely managerial and marketing topics.
