Winners of 2012 Must See ‘Ems Announced
RESTON, VA—With the early announcement of this year’s top technology winners, Graph Expo 2012 attendees for the first time will be able to plan their Must See ’Ems booth visits in advance of the show. They also will be able to take advantage of a new Must See ’Ems pre-show webinar for more in-depth discussions of the winning technologies and the reasons they were chosen.
Entries in the Must See ’Ems competition were submitted by the graphic communications industry’s top vendors and placed for judging in 11 individual categories. Winners were selected by a panel of industry experts, journalists and consultants who based their choices on the impact they believe these technologies will have on the industry.
