Graph Expo 15 delivers optimism and orders
Demonstrating the graphic communications industry’s resiliency, optimism, and intent to invest in the future, show visitors turned out in force for GRAPH EXPO 15 and co-located CPP EXPO, that took place September 13-16, 2015 in Chicago’s McCormick Place. Current industry indicators signaling an uptick in the economy, together with exciting new and emerging marketplace opportunities, set the stage for progressive print professionals who came from across 12 key industry segments to convene in Chicago with keen interest-and purchasing power-to see and explore the latest technologies and offerings.
“The show’s success, measured by the leads and orders, reinforced the value and significance it continues to hold for our entire industry and its leaders,” said Ralph Nappi, president of the Graphic Arts Show Company (GASC). “In fact,” he continued, “the key to GRAPH EXPO’s enduring relevancy and strength is based on representing not just one finite niche but the entirety of our industry, as evidenced by our offerings for, and continuing participation from among 12 industry segments.”
Well satisfied attendees, exhibitors, and co-location partners declared plentiful new leads and sales during the event, and proclaimed the show a success.
Next up for the industry is GRAPH EXPO 16 set to take place September 25-28, 2016 at the Orange County Convention Center-North, in Orlando, Florida.
