Graph EXPO and Converting expo 2003 -- Value-Added Opportunities
"These smaller exhibits often produce some of the most exciting news at GRAPH EXPO and CONVERTING EXPO," remarks Delmontagne. "And, in their sheer number and diversity, they contribute tremendously to the breadth and value of the show."
While most attendees could spend all day on the show floor, GRAPH EXPO's educational seminar series should not be missed. The 65-session educational program will feature three free general sessions, four special brunch presentations, as well as numerous seminars and workshops, on topics including business management, sales and marketing, technology implementation and growth opportunities for today's print-based businesses.
Before the Show
In addition, the 2003 edition of Executive Outlook—a full-day technology and business conference aimed at top management executives—will again be presented at McCormick Place on Saturday, September 27, the day before GRAPH EXPO and CONVERTING EXPO opens. William Lamparter, president of the PrintCom Consulting Group, will chair the all-day conference, now in its eighth year.
The full-day Executive Outlook Conference is structured to provide printers with information that will help them evaluate how new products and technologies can be blended with the old to create opportunities, even when business conditions are difficult.
"Profiting With the Right Technology—Struggling Without It—A Print Manager's Survival Kit" was selected as the theme for the conference to emphasize the fact that profitable survival is highly dependent upon the proper use of the technologies that can effectively produce the products being demanded by quality-conscious, deadline-sensitive print buyers.
"Printers that are falling behind the technology curve are finding it difficult to compete with their counterparts and the burgeoning alternative electronic media," Lamparter states. "Executive Outlook is a technology information smorgasbord that will help printing executives assess the equipment, software and materials that will be exhibited at the show."
