PSDA

    New Name. New Approach.
    New Opportunities to Grow.

    Formerly known as the Distributor Solutions Expo, PSDA15: P2P Solutions Summit will be held March 31-April 2 in newly renovated space at the Hyatt Regency Chicago.

    As the association for the community of professionals who make, buy and sell print and print-related products and services, PSDA is always evolving. And now its signature annual event is evolving, too, to reflect the innovative spirit of this community amid disruptive industry change.

    Distributors, manufacturers and suppliers will be able to grow their businesses by connecting with each other in meaningful ways both on and off the reconfigured trade show floor. Plus, a select number of registrants can sign up to be placed in peer groups to network, share ideas and learn. 

    As a result of these and other meaningful changes, PSDA15: P2P Solutions Summit is 2015's must-attend event. Make sure you take advantage of this high-impact opportunity to build connections and grow your business.

    Grow Professionally

    One-on-one meetings Tuesday afternoon

    In addition to seeking solutions via interactions on the show floor, attendees can schedule 1-on-1 meetings with manufacturers and suppliers to get personalized attention and allow exhibitors to tailor their discussions to attendees’ specific needs and areas of interest.

    Dedicated exhibit hall hours Wednesday

    Open on Wednesday, the Exhibit Hall remains an integral component of the Summit, allowing manufacturers and suppliers to showcase their products and services to distributors and salespeople in a trade-show-style environment. New, however, is a smaller show “footprint.” With a more consolidated floor plan, distributors can spend more quality time with prospective business partners to learn about the variety of new solutions they offer.

    In-depth educational content

    The Summit’s in-depth educational content from top-shelf speakers ensures everyone can take new ideas back to their workplaces to drive the growth of their businesses.
