PRINT 13 Sees Double-Digit Attendance Increase
RESTON, VA—The Graphic Arts Show Co. (GASC) released attendance figures for PRINT 13, held last month in Chicago. GASC reported a double-digit verified attendance increase over the 2012 Graph Expo event. Among the total 24,695 participants, which included exhibitors and attendees, 16,728 actual verified attendee/buyers—up 22 percent from 2012—visited McCormick Place South. Additionally, there was an uptick in the participation of high-level decision-makers from among 9,489 unique buyer companies—up 15 percent—compared to the 2012 event.
Based on its commitment to reporting the truest and most accurate attendance numbers, GASC defines ‘actual verified attendees’ as registered onsite show goers, counted only once, regardless of their number of days at the show, or times they enter the exhibit hall.
PRINT 13 featured a comprehensive exhibition of the very latest profit-enhancing technologies and applications for a diverse spectrum of industry attendees. This year’s show was enhanced by a record 67 co-located conferences, meetings, user groups and activities that afforded attendees a host of new and expanded networking and education opportunities.
