Envision Graphics 2014 is taking place over five day this July in Mansfield, Ohio.

Set to be the 89th annual conference of the Graphic Communication Educators Association (GCEA), it is aimed at those who are currently working in the graphics industry or who train employees, and is sure to offer the latest in educational techniques and in best practices.

The conference will feature workshops, presentation, seminars, and networking events. On the first day, guests can attend a dinner and President's reception at Kehoe Center. Attendees can also sign up for various tours of local printing companies and nearby attractions, such as the Cleveland Museum of Art or Cedar Point amusement park.

Some of the topics of discussion during the conferences are expected to include digital to print, sustainability, and 3D printing. Attendees can chose between classroom instruction, video track, or web track.

This will also be a great networking opportunity for those who work in the graphics communications or printing industry.
