PrintMediaCentr has announced the Printerverse will return to GRAPH EXPO 14, coming to Chicago’s McCormick Place, September 28 – October 1, 2014, together with co-located CPP EXPO. Here, attendees will discover a unique show floor destination designed to help them connect to the hot topics, latest trends, and people who are driving the print and marketing industries forward. Located in booth #4267 and once again serving as the social media hub on the show floor, this year’s Printerverse will offer attendees an eclectic and interactive mixture of events and learning opportunities including panel discussions, case study presentations, and networking events.
Deborah Corn, Principal at PrintMediaCentr (PMC) stated, “We are back for a ‘three-peat’ and thrilled to be partnering with GRAPH EXPO again! There is nothing like the Printerverse anywhere else on the show floor. It offers a casual atmosphere where everyone is welcome to meet up—actually make face-to-face connections—tweet up, network and learn something new.”
Programming in the Printerverse will showcase a range of topics including: what is possible with ink on paper; selling print and marketing your services in an integrated media world, and ways to add new service offerings to generate greater revenue. The Printerverse will also provide continuous opportunities for attendees to engage in the conversation about the future of our industry. “Like everything PMC does,” Corn said, “attendees should expect the unexpected—and plan to have a little fun as well!"
Building on the success of the Printerverse, the popular show floor feature continues to expand as an information hub through the support of names-you-know exhibitor industry partners. These Alliance Partners will simultaneously present for show goers and PrintMediaCentr’s online community, business-building tools, products, equipment and services designed to add value to their existing client offerings and create new profit opportunities.
“Adding to the information shared by alumni Alliance Partners,” Corn said, “we are expanding our resources by reaching out to new knowledge partners in areas of key interest to our community.”
“GRAPH EXPO 14 is pleased to welcome back PMC’s Printerverse to the year’s industry event. It offers attendees an important show floor hub in which to connect and learn from one another, and the extra value of guidance on new ways to improve their businesses direct from many of our industry’s foremost experts, GRAPH EXPO 14 exhibitors,” said GASC President Ralph Nappi.
During the four-day show, the Printerverse also will host a variety of industry events including the 3rd Annual “National Girls Who Print Day” on Tuesday, September 30 with GWP dignitary Mary Beth Smith, plus daily panel discussions, keynote speakers, contests, and several creative attendee participation activities. Additionally, the Printerverse will conduct a live #PrintChat from the #GRAPHEXPO show floor on Wednesday, October 1, at 3pm CST/4pm ET; daily sessions will also be broadcast live over the Internet via Livestream.
