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. “We want to sincerely thank our vast industry partners -- including exhibitors, members and attendees -- for their collective support during this ever-changing landscape and time,” says Ford Bowers, CEO, PRINTING United Alliance. “We conferred with dozens of exhibitors from all segments and sizes, regularly monitored attendee sentiment, and the weight of opinion supported the difficult decision to cancel this year’s show.”
The BoxMaker has agreed to acquire Tango Press. The parties expect closing to occur prior to the end of 2020.
Tango Press, headquartered in Springdale, AR, opened in 2016 as an all-digital production plant for corrugated packaging and displays. The company has a reputation in the marketplace for providing high-impact packaging and displays that meet customers’ unique needs, timeframe, and price points.
“The acquisition of Tango Press is a perfect complement to The BoxMaker and our web-to-print brand, Fantastapack.com. This addition gives us the opportunity to expand our reach and improve product distribution for digitally printed and finished packaging to businesses throughout the United States,” said Richard Brown, President and Co-Owner of The BoxMaker. “As an all-digital production plant, Tango Press’ business model and culture are a natural fit for The BoxMaker and we look forward to the expanded benefits that our combined facilities will deliver to clients.”
John Ballentine, President and Co-Founder of Tango Press states, “The combination of Tango Press and The BoxMaker will be a huge step in the advancement of digital printing and converting for the future of the packaging industry. By leveraging the best-in-class equipment, operations, people, service, knowledge, and technology we will be able to extend our offering and hasten our speed to market, allowing us to serve our customers’ needs better than ever.”
