Frank's going to Graph Expo, are you?
Published on July 22, 2011
Frank tells you why he endorses Graph Expo and why now more than ever it is important to make the trip to Chicago this September 11-14.
This is a sort of an endorsement. All of you should go to www.GraphExpo.com. It’s a great website, well organized. What you should do then is plan to attend Graph Expo and you can even download the entire seminar program. Great seminars from some of the best people in the industry telling you about the things you need to know.
Now, you say, “ah, things aren’t going that well, I don’t need to make a trip to Chicago.” You do need to make a trip to Chicago. You need to see what’s going on, you need to talk to other people about what’s going on because it’s the only you’re going to be able to move into the future. You’re going to have to see the technology that you’ll be using and see how it’s going to fit into your business and where your business is going to go.
So in any case, please go to www.GraphExpo.com, September 11 to 14 in Chicago. I’ve been to very Graph Expo that’s ever run and I have to tell you, I have always learned something from this show and from the seminar program. So take in a seminar at the show, there’s lots going on, there are a number of co-located events; Margie Dane’s Printer Buyer Conference will be running at the same time. It’s a phenomenal set of exhibitors with a lot of the new technology that’s being developed for the print industry. So I endorse Graph Expo and hope to see you all there… because that’s my opinion.
