GASC Offers Subsidies for PRINT 09 Exhibitors
RESTON, VA—In an effort to help stave off some of the sting of the current economic downturn, the Graphic Arts Show Company (GASC) has announced the PRINT 09 Subsidy Plan, a stimulus package that will reduce for every exhibitor the cost of participating in this year’s show, to be held September 11-16 at McCormick Place in Chicago.
GASC provides two stimulus plan options for exhibitors participating in PRINT 09. Option one is designed for companies with heavy machinery that occupies a large percentage of their booth space, which allows for unlimited machinery material handling at the show site. The second option features limited material handling, but encompasses both machinery and non-machinery, at the show site.
Altogether, GASC expects to offer up to $3 million in credit through the PRINT 09 Subsidy Plan. The average exhibitor savings will range anywhere from $550 to $165,000, depending on the size of exhibitors booth space.
