President Announces Move to Ft. Lauderdale in 2017, where CONLATINGRAF will Celebrate its 50th Anniversary
Orlando, Florida, USA - GOA president James Martin has declared the 41st Graphics of the Americas (GOA) event a success in terms of content, lead generation and attendance. Over 200 exhibitors as well as attendees from close to 100 countries participated in this year's show in Miami Beach, Florida. 1,200 attended GOA's renowned educational seminars, offered in both Spanish and English.
The GOA staff is already planning GOA 2017, which will take place February 16-18, 2017, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida at the easily accessed Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center -- only a 20 mile drive from Miami. The Miami Beach Convention Center will be undergoing renovations during this time.
Martin says that GOA would continue to expand on popular activities and showcases his predecessor, George Ryan, instituted during his tenure. Martin will also bring a more significant packaging presence, as well as digital printing, digital finishing and wide format- inkjet components."GOA brings many valuable programs to a unique and highly loyal audience of exhibitors and attendees," he says.
Some of the most loyal are officers and members of CONLATINGRAF, the Latin American Graphic Industry Confederation that will celebrate its "Golden" 50th anniversary at GOA 2017. The partnership between the Printing Association of Florida, which hosts and produces GOA, began at GOA's inception, over 40 years ago.

"We are very excited about strengthening the partnership with PAF," CONLATINGRAF President Fabio Arruda Mortara says of his organization's relationship with the Printing Association of Florida (PAF). "CONLATINGRAF is in a process of revitalization of the entity and we are striving with PAF in a united way, to strengthen the printing industry in Latin America and the Caribbean."
What the Exhibitors Are Saying about GOA 2016
"This was my 12th year exhibiting at GOA, and I am always amazed at how many international dealers and printers attend this show. I really love this show -- the location, cultures and attendees create a magic that is uniquely successful."
"Zund America is pleased with the results from GOA this year. Wide Format Print Shop Live!, where we collaborated with Caldera, Gilman Bros, and HP to show a complete print-to-cut workflow, is a great opportunity for exhibitors and attendees alike. It highlights the importance of evaluating not just individual components of a digital production workflow, but how easily and harmoniously they will work together to create an efficient and productive whole-from prepress to printing and finishing."
"Our booth at Graphics of the Americas this year was a huge success. We met many new local customers, as well as companies from other states, the Caribbean and Latin America. The number of sales we actually closed at the show was a new record for us."
