GRAPH EXPO is offering a behind the scenes look at the MUST SEE 'EMS technology winners that will be on the show floor this year. Sponsored by EFI and GRAPH EXPO, with presenter Hal Hinderliter, coordinator for the MUST SEE 'EMS program, the free live webinar will be aired September 18, 2012 from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm Eastern Daylight time. Registration information is available at: www.graphexpo.com/MSEwebinar.aspx.
This first-ever event will give prospective GRAPH EXPO attendees, in advance of the October 7 - 10, 2012 tradeshow coming to Chicago's McCormick Place, an opportunity to learn more about the 'must see' technologies, their implications for the graphic communications industry, and possible applications. Webinar participants will learn what new innovations could affect their businesses or potentially revolutionize their market segments. The free one-hour session will be a valuable tool for graphic communications professionals to plan and organize their GRAPH EXPO visit.
Hinderliter is a long-time and highly respected industry consultant and educator specializing in digital prepress, workflow management, variable data, e-book publishing, and general graphic arts education. He will review the selections in depth and examine the reasons behind each selection.
