The Association for PRINT Technologies has launched the APTech Connect Community Forum, a free online resource designed to foster engagement, collaboration and information-sharing across the print industry’s value chain, according to the association.

The APTech Community Forum’s goal is to create a virtual community replete with useful, user-generated content, according to the association. The forum has the capacity to allow committees and working groups to create specific spaces to share information, including meeting minutes, privately and in real-time.

Large portions of the forum will be open to the entire print community and are available to APTech members and non-members.

APTech also recently announced the continuation of its partnership with the In-Plant Printing and Mailing Association (IPMA). IPMA is the only professional organization dedicated exclusively to the needs of all in-house corporate publishing, printing and distribution professionals, APTech says. Dedicated conference and learning sessions for IPMA members are being planned for APTech’s PRINT 19 event in Chicago (McCormick Place North, Oct. 3–5).

Meanwhile, APTech and Print Media Centr are joining forces to curate the TechTalks at PRINT 19. These panel discussions are a coming-together of The Printerverse, the long-running sessions at PRINT and Graph Expo, and APTech’s future direction for bringing the print community together, according to APTech.
