Managed Print Services has emerged as a key area of growth for many within the office equipment channel, which we represent. This industry needs a platform for developing and enforcing standards, and MPSA is putting the important pieces in place for this to happen in the MPS marketplace. We are supporting the MPSA at the Foundation level to show our deep commitment to moving forward together. By working more closely with MPSA, we can expose our audience to additional resources for information and networking surrounding MPS. We look forward to an interactive, collaborative partnership with MPSA,” said Beth Torrey, Event Director, Questex Media Group.
Drawing on extensive experience in all kinds of information and education delivery, ITEX and imageSource provide multiple opportunities for MPSA members to increase their knowledge.

Now in its twelfth year, ITEX attracts thousands of dealers, resellers, VARs, systems integrators, OEMs, consultants, distributors, manufacturers, industry groups and associations. The event features a comprehensive conference program, as well as invaluable networking opportunities. MPSA members will gain diverse, industry-focused resources for MPS education and commerce.
“We believe ITEX will be a valued resource for all members of the MPS community to come together annually and attend MPSA-sponsored meetings, along with providing members a forum to attend or present expert-led education tracks on the latest MPS strategies,” said Sand Sinclair, ITEX Conference Director and Editor of imageSource.
