We had another great year at the Printing United Trade Show this past October. So many folks have reached out asking how it went that we thought we’d provide a recap here – and share some exciting news about PageDNA!
Printing United Show Recap
This year’s Printing United show was a big success (check out this official show report from the Printing United Alliance). Not only did we get to debut our brand new 20×10 booth (pictured above), but our team also got to meet and speak to tons of potential customers and old friends.
This year’s show had an exciting buzz of energy running through the crowd. And we felt it at our booth, too! Our CEO did over 20 demonstrations in three days. Many partners and long-standing customers also came by to chat, show their appreciation, and hear PageDNA’s most recent news…
Introducing Our New Chief Operating Officer
The Printing United show also gave us an opportunity to share some big news – Gary Hielkema is joining PageDNA as our new Chief Operating Officer (COO). Gary will be taking over for Darrell Cabales, who will be retiring from PageDNA at the end of the year.
Gary is an accomplished executive with a long list of credentials. He was a successful manufacturing CEO for 20+ years and also has training as a CFO and CPA. Gary is currently nearing the end of a six-month training program and will officially take the reins as COO on January 1, 2024.
This trade show was somewhat of a celebration for us – welcoming in Gary while toasting to Darrell’s next chapter in life, which involves enjoying time with his wife, their cats, and his new RV!
We are going to miss Darrell greatly. However, he will be staying on as a consultant and remains a minority owner at PageDNA. So, he’ll still be around, just from a distance (in his RV)!
The Printing United show has also prompted us to reflect and give thanks. The excitement in the air was palpable as we saw people greet one another with hugs and smiles of joy. Everyone seemed so happy to see each other, and it wasn’t just because of the show.
Over the past few years, our industry, and our world in general, was rocked by a global health crisis. As we come out of those trying times, people seem to feel changed – at least we certainly do! At PageDNA, we’re extremely grateful for all our customers, partners, and staff, and even more grateful to be able to see all of your faces at trade shows and other events such as this one.
Looking Forward to 2024
We loved this year’s show so much that we’re already planning for next year. The Printing United trade show will take place next September 10-12 in Las Vegas, and we’ll plan to see you there!
