Press release from the issuing company

Reston, VA (June 04, 2008) - Printing industry professionals from around the world are expected to convene September 11-16, 2009 at the mammoth McCormick Place exhibition center in Chicago, Illinois to attend PRINT 09, the year's largest and most comprehensive global graphic communications exhibition and conference.

For PRINT 09, themed "myPRINT", customization is key - from attendee and exhibitor communiqués, to the debut of new online networking forums - with every aspect of the show  crafted to stimulate 24/7 networking between industry experts and peers, and facilitate connections among buyers and vendors to find the solutions that are just right for them.

"Increasingly, the printing industry has offered an array of products and processes that enable mass customization of printed communications.  Recognizing the prominent place of these innovations, and the effectiveness of personalization in communications today, we've integrated these tools into our own outreach, and aptly themed our 2009 event 'myPRINT,'" says Ralph Nappi, president of the Graphic Arts Show Company, Inc. (GASC), the show's producer.

myPRINT is expected to welcome 800+ exhibitors who will fill the nearly 7 hectares (17 acres) of exhibit space, which has been designed to cater to a diverse spectrum of attendees including: Commercial Printers, Quick Printers, In-Plant Printers, Enterprise (High-Volume Output/Transactional) Printers, Package & Specialty Printers, Mailing & Fulfillment Professionals, Creative Services Professionals, Wide Format Printers & Imagers, and Book Printers/Publishers and Newspaper Printers.  It is significant to note that 80% of attendees at this global marketplace are decision makers and key influencers.

At myPRINT attendees will experience the entire gamut of printing-related equipment, products and services in "live" running applications that will demonstrate all the latest technologies in commercial and quick printing, publishing, and high-volume enterprise output and more.  "A working knowledge of these new products and applications is critical to the future of the printing industry, because printing is no longer just about the printing press.  It's about the entire process, from design through fulfillment," says Nappi.

In addition, special attractions on the myPRINT show floor will include six special interest "pavilions" that will feature today's most in-demand products and services within: Press-Finishing; PackPrintSM; Prepress/Design Software; the Mailing & Fulfillment Center; Wide Format Pavilion and Ad Specialties Village.  "Within each of these special show floor features, the opportunity for buyers to get immediate answers to their questions will bring to life new profit possibilities for those seeking to expand their services, and profits, by appealing to new customer market segments," Nappi states.
