GRAPH EXPO 2008 to Feature Largest-ever Mailing & Fulfillment Center
RESTON, VA—September 4, 2008—Augmenting its reputation as the most comprehensive graphic communications exhibition and conference in the Americas, GRAPH EXPO® 2008 will feature the largest mailing and fulfillment exhibition of its kind anywhere when it opens its doors October 26 - 29 in Chicago’s McCormick Place South. This year’s Mailing & Fulfillment Center will occupy a record 38,900 sq. ft. of the GRAPH EXPO show floor and feature 73 exhibitors showcasing all the latest mailing and fulfillment systems, products and technologies.
As the largest-ever Mailing & Fulfillment Center since its inception, this year’s showcase will cover all the facets of mailing and fulfillment, from data processing, addressing and bar coding, to folding, labeling, slitting, sorting and stamping, to storing/racking, warehousing and more. Live demonstrations on the show floor will additionally allow attendees to get a firsthand look at just how they can add value to client projects through mailing and fulfillment.
“As clients increasingly look to their graphic communications provider for a full-range of marketing communications support, it has become essential for graphic arts professionals to be able to provide ancillary non-print services in addition to the traditional print-focused graphic communications services,” said Ralph Nappi, President of the Graphic Arts Show Company (GASC®). “Mailing and fulfillment is a logical extension of a printer’s core services, and the potential for profits are great. The record-setting size of this year’s Mailing & Fulfillment Center will mean that newcomers to mailing and fulfillment, as well as veterans, will find exactly the technologies and information they need to realize that potential and succeed in this area.”
Off the show floor, attendees will be able to glean yet more tips on mailing and fulfillment through a special seminar series produced by the Mailing & Fulfillment Service Association, the leading association for the mailing and fulfillment services industry. Sessions will cover how to get started in mailing and fulfillment, the latest postal regulations, how best to combine printing and mailing services, and more.
