2021 Theme Is: Because we’re stronger together 

As competitive as this industry is, you could not be where you are without the help from others. As much as you compete with one another, you learn and support each other too. There are issues and topics you cannot overcome on your own. Same can be said about the people within your company, without your production team your sales team could not sell and vice versa.

With imagery and/or copy please make PIM’s tag line – Because we’re stronger together – come to life. Be creative. Be bold. Show us what you can do!
