APTech’s RED HOT Technology Recognition Program will be a feature of PRINT 19 in Chicago (McCormick Place North, Oct. 3–5). The program showcases exhibitors’ newest products or services on the event floor and highlights publishing and printing tech, equipment, or service that has come to market within the past 12 months. All RED HOTs will be noted in the event guide, which will be printed and distributed at PRINT 19. Each recognized product will sport a highly visible RED HOT Technology marker and will be listed online and searchable within the event’s online directory and planner.
Each of the technologies may also be eligible to win one of three RED HOT Vanguard Awards, based on merit as a game-changer in the industry. The RED HOT Breakthrough Award recognizes products that build on existing tech to significantly advance its use; the RED HOT Collaboration Award recognizes innovative new products that result from a collaboration among different manufacturers; and the RED HOT Pioneer Award will be given to a product that's the first of its kind or entirely new to the industry.
“Sales opportunities and the collaboration that leads to growth go to the risk-takers, disruptors, and innovators,” says Thayer Long, president of APTech. “The RED HOT Technology participants will have an additional degree of visibility and recognition.”
