Must See ’Ems Winners for GRAPH EXPO 2012 Announced

RESTON, VA—August 23, 2012—With the early announcement of this year’s top technology winners, GRAPH EXPO 2012 attendees will be able for the first time 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.

Winners were picked in each category with the first-time “Best of Category” selections to be announced at the conclusion of the EXECUTIVE OUTLOOK Conference on Oct. 6, 2012, prior to the opening of GRAPH EXPO.

New for this year as well is the inaugural “Legacy Award,” which was created to recognize one past Must See ’Ems winner that has had a lasting influence on the graphic communications industry. This award will also be announced at the pre-show EXECUTIVE OUTLOOK Conference.

On Sept. 12, 2012, a Must See ’Ems webinar will be hosted by program coordinator Hal Hinderliter, a long-time and highly respected industry consultant and educator. He will review each technology in depth and examine the reasons behind each selection. Webinar attendees can use this information to prioritize their show planning schedules to make the best use of their time at the show and to coordinate their booth visits. Webinar registration information will be available online.

GRAPH EXPO attendees can also factor the webinar information into their personalized GRAPH EXPO Show Planner ( The planner allows attendees to build a roster of exhibitors to visit, organize their time in Chicago with the My Events Calendar, schedule meetings, and print out their personalized agenda planner to take to the show.
