GRAPH EXPO '03 Proves ProfitableNovember 2003
Kazem Samandari, vice president/global marketing and product management at Scitex Digital Printing, also reported that "we've closed sales in our booth, which we ordinarily don't expect to do. We've been very busy and had a lot of interest. The show has been a great success for us."
In addition to its exhibits, GRAPH EXPO and CONVERTING EXPO offered a program of more than 60 educational seminars, which drew almost 1,500 registrants. A variety of free general sessions, brunch presentations, free vendor presentations and mini-seminars staged on the show floor also drew steady crowds throughout the show.
GASC staged a special new Mailing & Fulfillment Center, complete with a seminar theater that drew capacity attendance for a number of sessions throughout the show, and a pavilion devoted to new binding technology, co-sponsored by the Binding Industries of America, along with its Wide Format exhibit area.
"As a multi-dimensional industry rallying point, GRAPH EXPO and CONVERTING EXPO has always been number one," noted Regis J. Delmontagne, president of the show's managing company, the Graphic Arts Show Co. (GASC). "With the added excitement of a distinct economic resurgence, this year's show clearly became the most successful and encouraging event in several years."
