Press release from the issuing company

Companies are advised by AMSP/NAPL/NAQP to make reservations now for the industry’s premier recognition event as capacity attendance is anticipated.

East Rutherford, N.J. - Individual seats and sponsored company tables are still available for the industry’s annual AMSP/NAPL/NAQP Soderstrom Awards Dinner in Chicago on Sept. 27, but companies interested in participating are advised not to delay in making reservations as capacity attendance for the event is anticipated.

This year the gala program and dinner will take place at the beautiful downtown University of Chicago Gleacher Center, overlooking the Chicago River, on the eve of the opening of GRAPH EXPO 2014. During the event, the 54th annual Walter E. Soderstrom Award will be presented to former AMSP/NAPL/NAQP Board Chairman Nigel Worme, Chief Executive Officer, COT Holdings Ltd., Christ Church, Barbados, and a dozen notable industry members will be inducted into the Soderstrom honors society. Dinner will be prepared by Wolfgang Puck catering.

“There has been an excellent response for tickets to this year’s Soderstrom Dinner  and a particularly strong demand for sponsored tables. Among table sponsors are EFI, Komori, and Mohawk Fine Paper, Blanchard Systems, Canon, Minolta, and Pantone/X-Rite,” says Joseph P. Truncale, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of AMSP/NAPL/NAQP, the association created this year through the merger of the Association of Marketing Service Providers, National Association for Printing Leadership, and National Association of Quick Printers.

“Reserving a table at the Soderstrom Awards Dinner offers companies a singular opportunity to bring together key executives and important customers or prospects in a wonderful setting as the industry convenes in Chicago,” adds Truncale. “The signage on the sponsored tables will also provide well-deserved recognition of a company’s support of our industry at one of its signature events’.
