The GOA staff is already planning GOA 2017, which will take place Feb. 16-18, 2017, in Fort Lauderdale, FL, at the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center, a 20 mile drive from Miami. The Miami Beach Convention Center will be undergoing renovations during this time.
Martin says that GOA would continue to expand on popular activities and showcases his predecessor, George Ryan, instituted during his tenure. Martin will also bring a more significant packaging presence, as well as digital printing, digital finishing and wide-format inkjet components. “GOA brings many valuable programs to a unique and highly loyal audience of exhibitors and attendees,” he said.
Some of the most loyal are officers and members of CONLATINGRAF, the Latin American Graphic Industry Confederation that will celebrate its “Golden” 50th anniversary at GOA 2017. The partnership between the Printing Association of Florida, which hosts and produces GOA, began at GOA’s inception, more than 40 years ago.
