The Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA) has purchased the printing trade show Graphics of the Americas (GOA) from the Florida Graphics Alliance (FGA) (formerly the Printing Association of Florida). Following a transition period, GOA will relaunch in February 2020 in Miami Beach, Florida. SGIA acquired the show in August 2018.

“GOA has a long history of bringing together an audience of exhibitors and attendees from North, Central and South America, as well as the Caribbean. These markets, though distinctly different in many aspects, are vital players in the larger printing community, and are of critical interest to the supplier members of SGIA,” said Ford Bowers, President & CEO, SGIA.

Over the next 18 months, SGIA and FGA will transition GOA to its new ownership and redefine it as an integral part of the calendar of events in the printing industry with high value for attendees and exhibitors.

FGA President Gabe Hernandez said, “The printing industry is even more interconnected now, and on many different levels, than in past years. FGA has long desired to make sure that GOA continues as a venue of high value across a range of printing segments and communities. SGIA has the reach, vision and resources to accomplish this and we are happy to be working with them to ensure GOA’s success and growth into the future.”

Graphics of the Americas will take place at the Miami Beach Convention Center, February 13–15, 2020. More details will be available in early 2019.
