The BindRite Dealer Network, which numbers 47 members in 58 locations and consists of North America’s most progressive independent, binding, finishing, and presentation technology dealers, is holding three events at the Chicago Crown Plaza Hotel in conjunction with GRAPH EXPO. Its Board of Directors Meeting was held on Saturday afternoon; its member meeting is being held today, from 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm in the Park Avenue Room; and, later today, its reception for key vendors, industry leaders, members, and officers and board members takes place.
BindRite dealers, under the umbrella of document finishing products and services, offer a range of binding, laminating, coating, and paper processing products that take document finishing of digital and conventional printing well beyond the realm of the traditional. Its independence from specific brands, processes, and technologies provides the market with non-bias solutions that address the finishing challenges faced by today’s printers.
The BindRite Dealer Network holds two meetings per year: an annual meeting in April that hosts a mini trade show for its key vendors, and a second meeting that coincides with GRAPH EXPO.
“We hold the meeting at GRAPH EXPO for obvious reasons,” says Al Boese, Executive Director of BindRite Dealer Network. “Our members pay single travel expenses for a dual purpose and there is common interest, in the trade show and our meeting, as well as the confluence of our member customers and members at the same event. This allows special meetings to show specific products and technologies. A significant number of members attend GRAPH EXPO/PRINT shows for all the above reasons. Finally, we have developed a tradition of a meeting during GRAPH EXPO/PRINT shows, and our members count on them.”
