GASC Appoints New Program Director for MUST SEE ‘EMS at GRAPH EXPO

“Having served as a judge for the MUST SEE ‘EMS program since 2007, I can appreciate the valuable guidance these awards provide to GRAPH EXPO and PRINT attendees,” said Hinderliter. “Going forward, my aim is to make the MUST SEE ‘EMS even more useful for show goers who are considering the purchase of new equipment or software.”

Among the goals Hinderliter has set for the 2012 MUST SEE ‘EMS program are to expand the pool of judges and also implement an online judging system that will make it easier for them to participate. Similarly, a new web-based application process will make it easier for exhibitors to submit their entries and to include supplementary explanatory images, videos and presentations. Additionally, the awards will be categorized to more closely align with the interests of potential equipment buyers. Lastly, the ‘Encore’ awards and ‘WORTH A LOOK’ recognition category will be discontinued in favor of two new recognitions: a ‘Best of Category’ Award-from within each MUST SEE ‘EMS category, and an annual ‘Legacy Award’-to salute one past MUST SEE ‘EMS awardee whose technology or product has made a lasting impact on the printing industry.

Nominations for MUST SEE ‘EMS may be submitted online beginning April 1, 2012 at:
