Reinforcing its position as THE year’s industry event, PRINT 13, together with co-located CPP EXPO, held September 8-12 in Chicago’s McCormick Place welcomed a double-digit verified attendance increase over the 2012 event. Among the total 24,695 participants, which included exhibitors and attendees, 16,728 actual verified attendee/buyers—up 22% from 2012—show goers came well-prepared to examine, compare and purchase the latest graphic communications technologies. Additionally, there was an uptick in the participation of high-level decision-makers from among 9,489 unique buyer companies—up 15%—compared to the 2012 event.
Based on its commitment to reporting the truest and most accurate attendance numbers the Graphic Arts Show Company (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.
