GRAPH EXPO Hailed as a Success

RESTON, VA | The recent GRAPH EXPO 2015 demonstrated the graphic communications industry's resiliency, optimism, and intent to invest in the future, reports the Graphic Arts Show Company (GASC), organizer of the event. 

GASC says show visitors turned out in force for GRAPH EXPO 15 and the co-located CPP EXPO, that took place September 13-16 in Chicago's McCormick Place. Print professionals came from across 12 key industry segments, reportedly with not only interest but also 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," says GASC president Ralph Nappi. "In fact, 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…."

Following are just a few of the testimonials reported by GASC:

"We thought last year was record-breaking; we've been amazed that we're even busier this year. The traffic has been nonstop." - Annette McCrary, director of Strategic Marketing Programs, Ricoh Americas

"It was an extraordinary opportunity to connect with current and future customers. There was terrific floor traffic at our booth..." - David J. Murphy, WW director of Marketing & Business Development, HP

"Mohawk was pleased to spearhead the new 'Materials Matter' show floor feature at GRAPH EXPO 15.

It served as a one-stop resource center for attendees of GRAPH EXPO." - Bart Robinson, senior VP-marketing, Mohawk
