It's provocative stuff: "I feel it is time that the Graphic Arts Show Company changed the way it operates. I think that there is no longer sufficient demand for an annual USA national trade show...PRINT should become the major North American based international and national trade show and should be cycled every four years to align with the other three major international events, drupa, IPEX and IGAS (Japan)." So writes industry observer Andrew Tribute in an opinion piece appearing today at WhatTheyThink. There's also a point-by-point rebuttal by Ralph Nappi, the executive in charge of the Print and Graph Expo shows for the Graphic Arts Show Company (GASC). What about you? Do you support Tribute's contention that the industry no longer needs an annual event in Chicago in order to showcase its capabilities? Or, are you with Nappi when he says that there's still plenty of evidence that the U.S. printing market wants and will continue to support annual productions by GASC? Even for those of us who can look back upon decades of attendance at the Chicago shows, this is no easy issue on which to take a stand. But, ultimately, the call will be yours to make. Let us know your thoughts.
