Pavilion Dedicated to Newspaper Sector Set to Debut at GRAPH EXPO 2010
RESTON, VA—March 9, 2010—Responding to a growing need in the graphic communications industry, momentum is building for GRAPH EXPO 2010's newest show floor feature—News Print, a dedicated newspaper pavilion specifically for newspaper printers and publishers, sponsored by News & Tech magazine. GRAPH EXPO 2010, the year's largest graphic communications exhibition and conference in the Americas, will take place October 3-6 in Chicago's McCormick Place South.
"As society's communications and information needs have evolved, the graphic arts industry has witnessed an increasing convergence of newspaper and commercial printing," said Ralph Nappi, President of the Graphic Arts Show Co. (GASC), which produces GRAPH EXPO. "The purpose of GRAPH EXPO is to help graphic communications professionals stay ahead of the trends and succeed in an ever-changing marketplace, so it made sense to dedicate space on the show floor to the latest trends and technologies within the newspaper printing and publishing industry. News Print will serve as a combination marketplace, education and networking destination where attendees and vendors can share how best to take their businesses, and the newspaper industry, to the next level."
As a demonstration of its commitment to the newspaper industry, GRAPH EXPO will host a networking reception, sponsored by News & Tech magazine, at the upcoming America East Technology and Operations Conference in Hershey, PA, to roll-out details about the News Print pavilion. Open to all America East attendees, the reception will take place Monday, March 15, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., in Cocoa Suites 4 and 5 of The Hershey Lodge. In addition to enjoying refreshments and networking with other industry professionals, all reception attendees will receive a free Expo Pass to GRAPH EXPO 2010, a $45 value. Supplier attendees will automatically be entered into a drawing to win a free 10 ft. x 10 ft. booth at GRAPH EXPO 2010, and all production attendees will automatically be entered into a drawing to win a free GRAPH EXPO 2010 Seminar Passport.
